These starchy morsels resemble unfilled rice pillows or raviolis. They have a pleasing texture and soak up the flavors of whatever sauce you pour over them.
Serve with a sprinkling of tamari, rice vinegar, shredded carrots and minced scallions over the top. You can use disposable muffin tins for this recipe.
- 1 1/2 cups rice flour
- 1/3 cup tapioca flour*
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups cold water
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir with a fork or whip to form a smooth and thick batter that resembles marshmallow fluff. Lightly oil 36 (3-inch) muffin cups (you can use disposable pans) and put about 1 tablespoon batter into each.
- In a large skillet, place an inverted plate on the bottom. Add 1/2 to 1-inch water. Place muffin tin atop plate being sure water does not overflow into muffin cups. Bring water to a boil over high heat, cover, and let steam about 5 minutes or until cakes are solid and cooked through. Remove tin from skillet and use a fork or spatula to gently lift rice cakes from muffin cups. Repeat until all batter is used.
