Directions:
+ Wrap red bean paste in aluminum foil and place in the freezer (for at least 3 hours). Mix sweet rice flour and green tea powder thoroughly in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl. Stir in water, then sugar. Mix until smooth. Cover bowl with plastic wrap.

+ Cook the rice flour mixture in the microwave for 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Meanwhile, remove red bean paste from the freezer and divide paste into 8 equal balls. Set aside. Stir rice flour mixture and heat for another 15 to 30 seconds.

+ Dust work surface with cornstarch. (While the mochi is still hot from the microwave, begin rolling balls the size of about 2 tablespoons.)

+ Flatten the mochi ball and place 1 frozen red bean paste ball in the center, and pinch the mochi over the red bean paste until the paste is completely covered.

+ Sprinkle with additional cornstarch and place the mochi seam-side down in a paper muffin liner to prevent sticking.

+ Repeat until all the mochi and red bean paste is used.
