Isobeyaki - Rice Cakes Wrapped in Nori

September 10, 2013

Known as Isobeyaki in Japanese these toasted rice cakes make a really simple and super tasty snack.

Serves 3

Ingredients

Method

  1. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, meanwhile remove the mochi from the pack.
  2. Add to the frying pan and fry on a low heat until they are lightly browned on both sides and puffy.
  3. Remove from the pan and drizzle both sides with soya sauce.
  4. Cut the nori sheet into 3 long evenly sized strips. Fold a strip of nori around the centre of each mochi and enjoy!

Variation: if you do not want to fry the mochi, you can also grill them but you will have to watch them like a hawk as they burn easily.
