Red Bean Paste Rice Cake Recipe
- Put 1 cup of glutinous rice flour into the bowl.

In Hong Kong, pan-fried mochi or red bean paste rice cakes are both traditional Cantonese snacks. It was also one of my favorite snacks growing up. If you enjoy mochi, you can try making these delectable red bean glutinous sticky rice cakes as well.
