Pumpkin Mochi With Jujube

Red Date RecipeRed Date Recipe

Making homemade mochi is so much easier than you think! These mochi are gooey, chewy and earthy. Jujube and pumpkin make an unlikely but hard-to-resist pairing. Not to mention the texture. You will be addicted to incredibly chewy and moist mochi center with its crumbly crust on top. 

Ingredients:

  • 100g pumpkin (without skin)

  • 10 pieces jujube fruit, pitted

  • 90g glutinous rice four

  • maple syrup or any other sweetener

Instructions:
  1. Chop the pumpkin into small cubes and cook it in boiling water together with the jujube fruit until the pumpkin is soft.

  2. Drain the pumpkin and jujube fruit. Set aside to cool down.

  3. Mash them and mix them with the glutinous rice four and the desired amount of maple syrup.

  4. Knead the mixture into a dough. Add some water if it’s too dry.

  5. Take a small amount of the dough (around 2 tbsp) and shape it into a cube.

  6. Bake them in a preheated oven at 170 °C for 18 mins.

*Note: It’s ok if there are some pieces left in the mashed pumpkin and jujube
