I received many requests from those who went to Kyoto and actually had this, so I finally decided to make it ;)



---------------------------------
Nama Yatsuhashi (Cinnamon-Flavored Mochi with Sweet Red Bean Paste Filling)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 25min
Number of servings: 12~14

Ingredients:
60g (2.1oz.) Shiratamako (lumpy glutinous rice flour)
40g (1.4oz.) Jyoshinko (rice flour)
80g (2.8oz.) sugar
140ml water
25g (0.9oz.) Kinako (soybean flour)
2 tsp. cinnamon powder
Tsubu-an or Koshi-an (sweet Azuki red bean paste with skins or without skins)

Directions:
1. Mix Kinako and cinnamon powder and set aside.
2. Place Shiratamako (lumpy glutinous rice flour) in a microwavable bowl. Add water little by little and mix very well. Then add sugar and Jyoshinko (rice flour), and mix well. *DO NOT add other ingredients before you mix the Shiratamako and water together. Otherwise, the lumpy texture won't go away.
3. Cover with plastic wrap, then microwave at 600 watts for 2 minutes. Mix well with a damp spatula. Cover with plastic wrap again, then microwave at 600 watts for 1 minute. Mix well with a damp spatula.
4. Dust half of the Kinako mixture (1.) on the counter. Place the Mochi. Then sprinkle with the rest and flatten out the Mochi using your hands and a rolling pin to 3mm (0.1 inch) thick.
5. Cut the Mochi into 12~14 square pieces. *you can eat the leftover edges ;)
6. Place some sweet Azuki red bean paste, then fold into half to make a triangle shape.

*You can store them in an airtight container at the room temperature for up to 2 days.
