♥ Matcha Daifuku ♥

Do you still remember my Strawberry Daifuku
They are mochi wrapping a whole strawberry coated with Anko filling. Since winter is here, berries are hardly seasonal and so I come up with this original Daifuku but with a matcha twist.

The mochi wrapper has hint of green tea which goes perfectly well with the sweet azuki bean filling.

This recipe is a much moisturizer version than my previous one, and I guarantee keeping them in the fridge won't make them hard. Enjoy!

  4. Sprinkle potato starch on top of the mochi. roll it flat to a thin layer using a rolling pin making sure it is covered with potato starch.
