three flavors of mochi

From vastly different sides of the smushy desert spectrum, the mochi vs. haupia comparison often abound. They are very similar in texture, but haupia is probably less consistant as it’s flavor generally matches it’s color. But what if one were to combine those topics and end the debate? If you have tried the haupia mochi, I’d like to hear it, otherwise a review on it will have to wait until the next hop over to the islands. Enjoy the jump Happy Hearts Mochi

haupia how to

As cooking shows go, this is on the amateur side, but is still nice to see a demo of some sort. Haupia is a very simple desert, but IMHO is easily made into chalky or blech blocks of goo if made wrong from scratch. Although I’ve always seen Haupia in blocks or simple geometric shapes, it also would be nice if someone would show something creative done presentation-wise. Then again it’s not really necessary cause Haupis never lasts long enough to look at, as it’s eaten almost instantly.
