Servings 4


  • 300 g rice flour
  • 180 g glutinous rice flour
  • 12 g salt
  • 4 g cornstarch
  • 400 ml hot water
  • sesame oil as needed


  • In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients; add half the hot water and incorporate with a wooden spoon; add in rest of water little by little until a shaggy soft dough forms.
  • Place in a microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap, making sure to vent a small corner to allow steam to escape.
  • Microwave on high 1 minutes; remove plastic wrap and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
  • Place plastic back on top, vent, and microwave on high 30 seconds; remove wrap and mix thoroughly again.
  • Place plastic back on top, vent, and microwave on high 30 seconds; remove from bowl and place onto a clean work surface that has been oiled with a little bit of sesame oil.
  • Pound with the end of a rolling pin or other flat surface for 3-5 minutes; knead for 7-10 minutes until a smooth, elastic dough forms.
  • Cut dough into four equal sections; take one section (cover remaining pieces) and start rolling it out into a smooth rope about ½” in diameter; cut into 4″ sections and place onto a parchment lined sheet tray; repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil; blanch rice cakes until they float to the top of the water and place onto an oiled sheet tray; cool and portion.
  • Top with your favorite sauces, meats, or veggies and enjoy!
