What is Okaki?

Okaki is one of Japanese traditional snacks made of rice (glutinous rice). In order to make okaki, rice is first polished, cleaned and steamed to make into mochi. When mochi is hardened, it will be cut into smaller pieces for drying. This drying process is the most difficult step for professional okaki manufacturers. When mochi completes drying process, it will be baked. This whole process will take about one week. Such a time and energy consuming process will make okaki a special snack!
