• 3 cups of rice flour
• 1 tsp of salt
• 1.5 cups of water
• Sesame oil
Fill up a pot halfway with water for steaming.
Place the pot on high heat.
In a bowl, add the rice flour and salt. Mix well with a fork.
Gradually add water into the flour and stir with a fork until it becomes crumbly.
Prepare a wet cloth to place on the bottom of your steamer.
Add the flour on top of the cloth, and steam for 20 minutes on high heat.
In a bowl, mix sesame oil with water.
Transfer the dough into a bread machine for 20 to 25 minutes (on pizza dough setting).
Wet your hands with the oil and water mixture before handling the dough.
Roll the dough into a ball, and roll into strips of about half an inch in diameter.
Cut into 2 inch pieces.
For tteokguk, leave the dough roll for a day in room temperature.
Ideas And Tips:
• Use short grain rice flour for this recipe. The texture may not result in the same way if you use other types of rice flour.
• You can substitute sesame oil with whatever oil you have available. Mixing oil in water keeps your hands free from the stickiness of the dough.
• If you don’t have a bread machine, you can knead the dough yourself. For safety, wear protective gloves since the dough will be very hot.
