First mix the Mochiko flour, salt and enough water together to form a dough. Shape patties and roll in some extra flour to prevent them from sticking to the others.

Additional Comments
My grandfather, Tatsuo Yamashita, taught my Mom. It's way better than the cooked mochi soup he used to make to ring in the New Year! Usually I prepare the mochi the night before New Years and fry them first in the morning.
