Ozoni is a special soup enjoyed in the morning on New Year’s Day in Japan. The soup always includes mochi, but the preparation varies by region and household. Here is our simple (but delicious) version...
Heat the Mochi on a low/medium temperature in a dry frying pan (or add a dash of Sesame Oil if you prefer) until it puffs up.
Place the cooked Mochi in your bowl, top with colourful vegetables and pour the broth on top.
