Serves: 4-8

1.5 cup grated daikon radish
3/4 cup water
1 cup rice flour
1 Tbsp corn starch
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp sugar
dash or two white or black ground pepper
1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Place grated daikon and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the radish and cooking water and stir to form a dough.
  3. Transfer dough to a greased 8x8 pan and press down with a spatula to smooth the top (the dough should be about ½ inch high and will only fill about two-thirds of the pan).
  4. Place the baking pan in a steamer and steam for 35-45 minutes. Remove the dough from the pan and slice into squares.
  5. Heat about 1-2 tsp vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Transfer squares to the skillet and sauté for about 3-4 minutes per side, until they are lightly browned.
  6. Serve immediately.
  7. Coble together a steamer: Put about an inch of water at the bottom of deep, wide wok, and set the 8x8 pan inside that. Cover with lid and bring to boil.
