    dough texture

    Is the texture of dough and mochi the same?
    What are some adjectives to describe the two?

    chewy?elasticitily? poundy? viscousy? Are those even words?
    Please give me better words

    Don't know, as I've never felt mochi. Does rice contain http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gluten ? I think this is what gives dough its special texture (hence the word "glutinous").

    chewy? That is, it's OK as a word, but it's inappropriate for something you wouldn't want to chew.
    elasticitily? poundy? , though in an academic context you could use the adjective 'elastic'.
    viscous[y - this makes it a word, but it's not right for dough. Engine oil is viscous.])? Are those even words?

    Informally, it's 'stretchy'. But it's such a special texture that other things are sometimes described as having 'a doughy consistency'.
