I haven't tried the mochi waffles yet ... need to get a waffle maker. I did buy some mochi (cinn-raisin) at Whole Foods though and tried the "danish" recipe on the packaging. Just substituted Tofutti for the cream cheese ... was really, really good! Mochi is so delicious ... love the chewy texture!
I'm thinking I might have. I tried puuting a little extra oil in the pan and it turned out great yesterday. I'm not sure how to improve the waffles, but I'll work on it, My man doesn't like it because it "tastes like rice cakes", but my toddler does.
After 4 days of searching I finally found mochi at a small natural foods market. Even the sushi chef a wegmans had no idea what I was looking for and showed me something that looked like multi-colored mochi candy. (?) cant wait to try the waffle and also the dumpling recipe from the book!
i live in oshawa ontario and can't find it anywhere either. helen505, if i went into toronto where should i be looking? you mentioned asian stores....but which ones? i might head to whole foods, but incase i don't can you think of any closer options?
