  • Steam the mixture with high heat for 15-20 minutes. The rice cake is fully cooked when there is no liquid coming out when you poke it with a fork.
  • Remove the bowl from the heat. Set it aside to cool down a bit. If you would like to fasten the process, put it in the freezer for 5 minutes or until lukewarm.
  • Once cool down, knead the rice cake for 5-10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and stretchy. Please remember NOT to use bare hands and wear gloves instead, because it is very sticky.
