Well now - I had to look up Warabi powder. It seems it can be made of different ingredients such as tapioca flour or it can be a type of fern? Obviously its some sort of setting agent but I'm not sure its very easily available in the West. What was in your Wasabi powder?

It can also be one if your favourites :giggle: sweet potato starch. It can also be potato starch from the source I found (Warabi Mochi Recipe: How to Make Japanese Warabi Mochi - 2022 - MasterClass)

The fern used is (apparently) the common bracken but the manufacturing process is quite slow needing 6+ weeks to dry the liquid to a powder.

It should be type of fern, I know it is quite difficult to find! I only get it from baking supplies shop

This is great, thank you for sharing this recipe, I have always wanted to learn how to make this and never knew it involved only 4 ingredients. I am very excited to make homemade fresh mochi.
