Uncle Lani's Poi Mochi

Variation on a Japanese rice flour dessert.



  • 1 bag of poi
  • 2 C. water (more or less as necessary for consistency of thick pancake batter)
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) Mochiko (Asian sweet rice flour)
  • 1 C. sugar
  • 1 quart canola oil for deep frying



Combine all ingredients except oil; mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot oil and deep fry until slightly crisp. Drain on absorbent paper. Makes about 30 to 36 pieces.

Hi Christina --

Please let us know how it turns out.

Uncle Lani's daughter, Charmaine, told me that this recipe was "similar" to the recipe they used.

I just did a Google search for Uncle Lani's poi mochi and was pleased to see they're still around: looks like they're at the Made in Hawaii Festival in August 2009.

I would like to know where I can come and buy already freshly made poi mochi.
Preferably in the town area.

As a mother of 3 and an employee of 2 years, I've chosen to attend college for a degree in Medical Assistant. Financially I wasn't prepared for bi;;s to take a toll on me, so I've started fund raising to make ends meet. My fund raiser is poi mochi and it's turned out well on the windward side, but I live in Honolulu. If you are interested in supporting my cause call 7449898. PLEASE,only for orders.
