Mochitsuki

Mochitsuki is a Japanese cooking technique. It is the act of pounding steamed sticky rice, in order to make “mochi” rice cakes. The steamed rice must be pounded when it has cooled down a bit, but is still hot. It is put into a mortar called an “usu” and pounded with a mallet on a handle called a “kine.”
