Mochi rice cake + Waffle = Moffle?
A new food invented?

Mochi (餅) is a Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice pounded into paste and molded into shape. In Japan it is traditionally made in a ceremony called mochitsuki. While also eaten year-round, mochi is a traditional food for the Japanese New Year and is commonly sold and eaten during that time. Mochi is similar to the Chinese rice cake nian gao; however, mochi is shaped from cooked glutinous rice right after it is pounded, whereas nian gao is steamed directly to its final form from a batter made of uncooked glutinous rice flour. In the Philippines, it is called palitao in Tagalog and is coated with sesame seeds and grated coconut. Mochi is very sticky and somewhat tricky to eat. Every new year, the Japanese media reprts how many people die from choking on mochi, usually elderly. Because it is so sticky, it is difficult to dislodge via the Heimlich maneuver and lifesaving experts say that a vacuum cleaner is efficient for stuck mochi. Hmm never tasted one before, would love to try it someday when i go to Japan and hope that i won’t chock.😄

Now the Japanese came up with a way of making an edible food, Moffles! Japanese pastry connoisseurs and technology fans have found a new obsession: the “moffle”, a cross-over between a waffle and Japan’s traditional “mochi” rice cake. Made by toasting a rectangular slab of “mochi” paste in a Belgian waffle maker or a special moffle machine, the moffle is served as a dessert with ice-cream or chocolate sauce, or as a savory snack with cheese, ham or cod roe. Mochi, mostly sold as soft, round little cakes, are among Japan’s most popular sweets, although every year there are reports of elderly people choking on the chewy, sticky mass.
