Not many people like this steamed cake. It is made of fermented ground rice and steamed. If you eat leave them in the open too long and its taste has a very sour spoilt taste and the outer skin is sticky. I love this cake maybe because of the rice base and the very dense texture. Some of you may not like to spend too much time fighting with this recipe. I understand, but it is worth trying. View more
