Yields approximately 4 large mochi 
Ingredients
1 cup of glutinous rice flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp green tea powder
2/3 c water
red bean paste
cornstarch
Directions
- Roll red bean paste into balls no larger than 1 inch in diameter.  Set aside.
- In a microwave safe mowl, mix together glutinous rice flour, sugar, green tea powder, and water.
- Microwave mixture on high for 2 minutes.  Remove and stir.  Return to microwave for approximately 40 seconds to 1 minute.  It should be smooth and sticky.  
- Dust a working surface and your hands with cornstarch.  
- Scoop up about 1/4 of the dough and flatten while it is still hot.  Be careful to not burn your hands.  Place a ball of red bean paste filling in the center, and wrap the dough around the filling and pinch the edges together to seal.  Try to shape the dough into a smooth round ball.  
- Serve on tea plate or in cute little cupcake holders.
