Ingredients

Main

  • 4 strawberries , rinsed, stem off, and dried
  • Some starch powder

Dough for 4 strawberry rice cakes

  • 1 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp white sugar

Red bean paste for 25-30 rice cakes

  • 250 g red beans
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

Steps (for red bean paste)

  • Rinse the red beans. Put the red beans in a pot and add the water (6 cups).
  • Simmer it until they turn out to be easily crushable. (I boiled it for 40 minutes and the paste turned out to be a bit rough still. So if you want to make really fine red bean paste you need to boil it a lot longer with more water. )
  • Take out the beans, leave them to cool down for 5 minutes and put them into a mixer.
  • Blend them.
  • Add the water (1 cup), honey, white sugar, and salt. Blend it again.
  • Put the blended red bean paste into a pot or wok and dry it on medium to low heat until the moisture evaporates enough so it is a paste.

Steps (for dough, you will need a microwave)

  • Sieve the glutinous rice flour, salt and sugar two times.
  • Add the water and mix them well (it will now look like milk).
  • Put it into a microwavable container.
  • Cook it on high for 3 minutes in a microwave. (I don’t know how your microwave works, but that is how I did it. The purpose is to make it doughy)
  • Take out the container and stir it well.
  • Put it back to the microwave and repeat steps 4 and 5 two times more. (So, you use the microwave for a total of 9 minutes.)
  • Let it cool for 5 minutes.
  • Spread well some starch powder on a plate (cover the plate throughly) and pour out the dough from the container. Put the starch powder onto the dough so that it doesn’t stick on your hand.
  • Divide the dough into 3-4 pieces.

Steps (to assemble)

  • Spread the dough on your hand and add the red bean paste and a strawberry on top.
  • Seal it.
  • Serve it on the plate. (You need to eat it within 2 hours after you make it. Otherwise the dough will go soggy.)
