An excellent snack: rice, salt, sugar, and alcohol

This is a snack of mocchi (Japanese rice cake), a dipping sauce of soy sauce and sugar, and a glass of cold sake (Momokawa Silver).

This brown rice mocchi because that's what they sell in my supermarket, but it's traditionally made with white rice in Japan. You just put it in the oven or toaster oven at 400°F for 6 to 10 minutes until it puffs up.

It would normally be puffier than this, but I don't think the brown rice version puffs up as well.

It's still very delicious and an excellent vehicle for eating soy sauce.
