Homemade Rice Crackers Senbei

Homemade Japanese Rice Crackers (Senbei)

  • Author: Showit User
  • Total Time: 35 minutes


Units Scale

Rice Crackers

  • 120 grams sweet glutinous rice flour (mochiko)
  • 40 grams cooked, short grain white rice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp neutral vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 12 tbsp furikake seasoning


  • 1 tbsp tamari, gluten free soy sauce
  • 2 tsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp white sesame seeds
  • shichimi togarashi, japanese chili powder, to taste
  • unseasoned nori



  1. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  2. In a food processor, pulse rice flour, cooked rice, salt and oil until you achieve a coarse powder. Then stream in water as you continue to the run the food processor.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a mixing bowl, add furikake seasoning to taste and toss to combine with a spatula. Using your hands, press together the mixture. It should hold together once pressure is applied, even if the mixture looks dry at first.
  4. Take golf ball sized scoops of the mixture, press between your hands to compress and then form into a ball. Place the ball between 2 sheets of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to flatten down as much as possible. Gently peel the top layer of parchment paper off and use a cookie cutter or other circular item to cut a circle.
  5. Transfer the circle onto a nonstick baking mat lined tray and repeat with remaining dough.
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
  7. Mix together tamari and mirin in a small cup and whisk together to combine. Brush a layer of this glaze on top of both sides of each cracker piece, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. If adding nori, slice thin rectangle pieces to wrap around the cracker. Return crackers to the oven and bake for an additional 3-4 minutes.
  8. Allow crackers to cool completely before enjoying. Cooking time may vary based on width of your crackers.
