The other day I made some carrot soup. I put four cups of water in a pot. Then I added one carrot, half an onion, some ginger, one tablespoon of soy sauce and one tablespoon of olive oil. I cooked it for twenty minutes. Then I let it cool down for a few minutes and I put it in the blender. Then I added three garlic tops and some mochi. My Korean friends gave me this mochi. I think their family sent it to them from Korea. I cooked it for five more minutes. Then I served it in a bowl and sprinkled some shichimi on top. It was very tasty.
サラのメモ： Mochi seems to have hundreds of different names - depending on the country. Since I'm in Japan I would call this "Korean mochi" in English. But in Korea I guess it's called: tteok, ddeock, duk, dduk, ddeog, or thuck. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tteok
What do you call it?
This Korean mochi tastes a bit different from Japanese mochi ... the texture is a bit different. Less sticky, more chewy perhaps. Both are delicious!
