240ml Mineral water
2½/3g Agar flakes
a pinch of vanilla sugar
Add the water to a double boiler and sprinkle the agar flakes on top.
Heat until boiling without stirring.
Add the vanilla sugar.
Stir occasionally, trying not to introduce too many bubbles for around 5/10 minutes, until the agar has completely dissolved.
Pour into a half sphere mould and cool in the fridge to set.
The mochi is very delicate as less agar has been used, so it will fall apart easily. It will also begin to melt after 20 minutes or so at room temperature.
If done right, you’ll have a completely transparent half sphere of water that literally melts back into water in your mouth.
