Discover the Delight of Kirimochi at Tomato Japanese Grocery

Welcome to Tomato Japanese Grocery, your one-stop shop for authentic Japanese ingredients and snacks. Today, we’re excited to introduce you to a traditional Japanese delicacy that’s perfect for any occasion: kirimochi.

What is Kirimochi?

Kirimochi, also known simply as mochi, is a type of rice cake made from glutinous rice. The term "kirimochi" specifically refers to mochi that is cut into rectangular or square shapes. These rice cakes are an integral part of Japanese cuisine, enjoyed for their chewy texture and subtle flavor. Unlike fresh mochi, kirimochi is dried and has a longer shelf life, making it a convenient pantry staple.

The Versatility of Kirimochi

One of the best things about kirimochi is its versatility. It can be prepared in numerous ways to suit a variety of tastes and dishes:

  • Grilled Mochi: Grilling kirimochi until it puffs up and gets a crispy exterior is a popular method. Serve it with soy sauce or wrap it in nori (seaweed) for a simple yet delicious snack.

  • Mochi Soup (Ozoni): A traditional dish often enjoyed during Japanese New Year celebrations. Kirimochi is added to a savory broth with vegetables, making a hearty and comforting soup.

  • Mochi Pizza: Replace traditional pizza crust with grilled kirimochi. Top it with your favorite ingredients for a unique twist on pizza night.

  • Mochi Dessert: Sweeten your kirimochi by coating it in kinako (roasted soybean flour) and sugar, or enjoy it with sweet red bean paste.
