Microwavable Peanut Butter Mochi Strawberry Mochi Recipe--yummy and easy!

Peanut Butter mochi, Strawberry mochi
If you're a traditionalist, don't bother reading further.  If you don't have time, or baking isn't your "thing," then this recipe is for you.  My girls said it tastes just like the popular Hawaii Two Ladies Kitchen and Nisshodo.  I don't know if I'd go that far, but it was pretty good...for my first attempt at making mochi (well, at least for microwavable mochi)

Microwavable Peanut Butter Mochi or Strawberry Mochi Recipe
1 1/2 cups mochiko
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp. vanilla (optional)
peanut butter, or strawberry
Katakuriko or cornstarch

Mix mochiko, sugar and water until smooth.  Pour into slightly oiled microwave tube pan.  Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 6-8 min.  Turn over on plastic cutting board covered with katakuriko or cornstarch. Cut mochi into 12 wedges.  Coat hand with katakuriko or cornstarch and and flatten mochi.  Place a teaspoon of peanut butter, or strawberry, in center of mochi and bring edges together and pinch to close.

Note:  If you use fresh strawberry, cut mochi into 8 wedges.
I microwaved mochi for 8 min on high and it came out a little overdone.  Next time I'm going to do 6-7 min.  Cooking time will depend on your microwave.
