Sesame Mochi

This normally Korean baked good we bought in a Chinese supermarket, it was an attempt to duplicate the crunchy sesame and flour ball. Japanese mochi are different, they are made from glutinous rice flour, and are normally filled with a paste with red bean or taro and other flavours. These Korean mochi are better eaten fresh, and they didn't taste so good, as we ate them when they were a little stale, though definitely there was the nuttiness of the sesame. I think, though, that I would rather like to try them baked in a Korean store.
