Japanese Food Onomatopoeia: Mochi Mochi

April 12, 2011 · 25 comments

in Japanese Food Onomatopoeia

red sticky rice image sasasunakkuMochi mochi means glutinous (not glutenous!) and sticky. Mochi mochi stuff has a chewy bite, for example mochi (natch), sticky rice like the sekihan in the picture, some kinds of mushipan and breads like these muffins made with glutinous rice flour and  Pao de Queijo.

Audioscript: “Mochi mochi shiteru mushipan ga daisuki” (I love steamed cakes that are mochi mochi).

NB: If you click the little arrow below, the audio will play.

Oh, I LOVE mochi, to the point where I quite definitely suffer from mochi madness. There is just something so gloriously glutinous that sends my mochi-gluttony into overdrive. Mmmmm. So, it’s not hard to guess my favourite mochi-food.

Other gloriously mochi-mochi things must include saucy slowcooked ribs, tenderly cooked ox tendon, sichuan style and about a thousand and one SE Asian desserts. Oh, and Gulub Jamun. I LOVE Gulub Jamun! I think I’d better go and have a lie down.

This really made me smile. Food onomatopoeia must simply be the best kind of onomatopoeia :D Mochi mochi daisuki!! x

Sasa April 12, 2011 at 9:55 pm

Watashi mo ^_^

Su-yin April 12, 2011 at 10:05 pm

There is no way I could choose my favourite “mochi” food… I love anything with glutinous rice flour. :D

Dennis April 13, 2011 at 3:47 am

Hi Sasa, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but gotta love the mushipan! I also like my mochi drowned in kinako.

Sasa April 13, 2011 at 8:59 am

Kinako, me too, and kuromitsu.

amber April 13, 2011 at 7:40 am

I’ve never tried any of these foods!

Sasa, did you know that “glutinous” and “gluten” actually come from the same Latin root? They both come from “gluten/glutinosus” (“glue”) but they arrived into the English lexicon at different times.

Sasa April 13, 2011 at 8:59 am

Interesting! I thought they must have the same root because the concept is similar but I didn’t know how it came about.

millie April 13, 2011 at 9:17 am

ahh, you’re making me hungry for sekihan…!
But my favourite mochi-mochi food: probably mochi itself. Yakimochi with nori and shoyu… best ever. Close second? Definitely pao de queijo :)

Alli April 13, 2011 at 11:40 am

I’m all for glutenous food :0) I just can’t help it if the food tastes good. I just poached chicken in a tea broth with udon noodles and sea weed and if P had not come home in time I would have been a gluten and eaten his share too.

AML April 14, 2011 at 10:46 am

This is one area of food where I feel completely lost and clueless. Well, not that I have an idea about other stuff, but, more than Japanese cuisine. I need to learn, but am always so intimidated. Like a bazillion years of culture and tradition for my to eff up. Not to mention, with me being a Westerner, it’s almost impossible for my brain to remember the words. The sounds are just too…foreign I guess. I could use some pointers for sure. You still getting care packages? Or do you have luck finding this stuff in Austria? I was craving some Thai curry recently and just to find lemongrass, and DRY kaffir lime, we had to go on a wild goose chase through Torino. Not quite the same. Besides that, I had to bring a buncha stuff from the states…

Sasa April 15, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Limited stuff, and I get stuff when I go to London etc and when I’m lucky, care packages but the fresh stuff is unobtainable (fresh wagashi and fish etc).

catty April 14, 2011 at 11:19 pm

i like me some mochi with ice cream inside! heheh.. actually i like all kinds of mochi mochi food, like sticky rice! :)

Sasa April 15, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Ice cream daifuku! Also a favourite of mine.

Lana April 15, 2011 at 8:16 am

I am thinking of lamb shanks, the lower part, sticky and gelatinous, after several hours of braising. Am I close? I need a serious tutorial on Japanese food. I heard that you are coming to SF soon – I am not that far away:)
Love the repetitiveness:)

Sasa April 15, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Hm, not sure if that is mochi mochi, it has more bite usually. Have emailed you re SF!

Kimberley April 15, 2011 at 8:39 pm

That image makes me hungry! And I heart mochi. I used to work in our tiny Japantown and the thing I miss most is the food!

Alessandra April 16, 2011 at 5:32 am

I like the original mochi mochi: mochi!!! THAT is difficult to find in New Zealand!


Maria @ Scandifoodie April 18, 2011 at 9:16 am

Love it! Yum, this would be so tasty :-)

Pei-Lin April 21, 2011 at 11:31 am

Oh, you’ve got a sexy voice! Hahaha! I love your Japanese accent. So sensual …

I remember back in mid 2009, when I was stuck in Narita Airport for 24 hours while on my way back from the States to Malaysia, I chanced upon ice-cream mochi! Too bad, I let go of the opportunity to try new food … Now a regret for life, till I visit once again …

Sasa April 21, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Thank you ^_^;
Wonder if you mean ice-cream daifuku, if so you can normally get it in the freezer section of Asian stores.

Anna Johnston April 22, 2011 at 7:05 am

Sassa, I could really go a bowl of this, I haven’t had this dish for such a long, long time. Gotta find me some :)

louise September 27, 2011 at 2:59 pm

where do you buy mochi in new zealand?

Sasa September 27, 2011 at 10:23 pm

My stepmother actually makes it fresh in her machine but you can get it at Japanmart in Khyber Pass in Auckland.
