Making Mochi is Scary

(Video Link)

If you're familiar with even the most basic Japanese dessert, you're probably familiar with mochi, the sticky, sweet cakes made from rice flour. What you probably don't know is that the most traditional way to make mochi is also horrendously dangerous -one person whacks the paste with a mallet while another person folds and mixes it with their hands. It's easy to see what could go wrong here, but that's precisely what makes it so fascinating to see the fastest mochi maker in the world smash and fold in record time. Watching him makes me want to flinch and my hands are nowhere near a giant wooden mallet.
