Boiled MOCHI DANGO with AZUKI (Red Beans)

Sometimes, I want to just have some snack.  The presentation likely would add to its enjoyment, but sometimes, I just don't have enough time and care in the world, but I want to just make it and eat it.
Grab 1 Cup of MOCHI flour (Glutinous Rice flour) of any brand.
In this testing, I added 1/4 C Tapioca flour.  Not that it matters for the type of MOCHI DANGO I am making because it is moist type and eaten right away.
Mix MOCHI flour with some water.  Adding 1/4 C of water first.  Mix.
Add enough water to form a pliable "play" dough.   Flatten the dough - depending on the size of the MOCHI balls you want to make - 1 to 1-1/2 TBsp size.    Drop enough AZUKI (a can of red bean paste or make your own - thick and pasty.)
Enclose the Red Bean.
Bring a pot of water to a BOIL first, then, Add the MOCHI Balls.
The water will drawn back to simmer naturally.  Wait for the water to bring back to full boil again.
Boil for 1 to 2 minutes after they float up.  Take largest one out to check.
Cooked through?  Transfer to a plate. Cool them off a bit before serving.  Do Not Serve young children MOCHI or Hot Sweet Potato type items while they are still steaming.  Cut them into halves and tested for heat before serving to young children.
If you wait long enough after straining and air drying, you could pick them up with fingers to eat... it's sticky... yum!
