Mochi question.. Please help!?
Hi.. So I've ate daifuku and mochi (don't exactly know the difference between the two) and I love them.. Now I don't live in Japan so I can't buy them.. I want to make them and I know you have to buy glutinous rice flour, but I've searched everywhere and can't find it.. So can I use rice flour instead or is not the same?
If not, sushi rice is available.. can I just grind that up to make glutinous flour or not?
Please help me..

Do not substitute with any other rice product or try to make your own - you will be very disappointed. You can find it at almost any Asian market and often in large grocery chains. Alternatively, you can easily find it online from Marukai ( www.marukaiestore.com ) or Mitsuwa Marketplace ( http://www.mitsuwa.com/english/ ). Search on "mochiko" or "sweet rice flour"
"Mochi" is the plain, white, rice cakes made out of cooked, pounded glutinous rice.
"Daifuku" is a soft, round mochi stuffed with a sweet filling such as sweet red or white bean paste
