No matter how many times we enjoy watching rain accompanied by chill breeze, we still love it.  We never get tired of it. In fact we want it more and more. But have you ever tried eating a rain drop? Nope??? I would say yes. Yeah, that is possible. I eat it often. Of course what you read is neither a typo nor we gone nuts.


 Have you ever tried making it rain whenever you like???  You may not, but indeed you can cook rain drops, one step ahead you can even touch the raindrop and eat it as well. No worries, these rain drops will not blush and melt down on your touch.

 Here is the Japanese ” Mizu Shingen Mochi “, a delightful desert, also known as raindrop or water droplet cake. All we need to prepare this delicate sweet up to 8-10 molds is 3 simple ingredients, 10 minutes of our time, passion to cook and thirst to taste new.


  1. Sugar – Plain white sugar is fine (or) Vanilla sugar leaves its mark on the dish.
  2. Water – 500 ml of normal water (or) spring water indeed brings the difference.
  3. Agar – A little amount does the remaining.


  1. Take 15 grams of sugar and 15 grams of Agar into a bowl.
  2. Add some water to the mixture and stir it up well to avoid lumps.
  3. Pour remaining water into the bowl and heat it for 3 to 5 minutes in simmer, till the agar dissolves completely.
  4. Stir it occasionally and avoid too much of bubbles on boiling.
  5. Let the liquid cool down for 2 minutes.
  6. Pour it into any type of jelly molds for shape.
  7. Keep the mold in fridge for several hours or over a night.


Early in the morning, you can surprise yourself with the delicious Japanese treat.  However be smart enough to eat it, rather falling in love with it, as this morning dew vanishes within 30 minutes at room temperature.

The below would accompany our raindrops to serve:

  1. Roasted soya bean powder
  2. Black sugar syrup



  1. If you want to embed other ingredients inside the drop, just place them in the molds before pouring the liquid.
  2. To remove the drops from molds, use a wet toothpick and glide it around the sides gently before removing them.
  3. It is best to serve them fresh or keep chilled until required, as it melts within 30 minutes at room temperature.
