"Hi Maangchi, I made this today and it turned out well. I could not find the rice cake powder at my local Korean market (H-Mart in the Seattle area) so I made my own with your recipe using my food processor. A few notes: 1) When I initially mixed my rice powder with 3/4 cup of water, it was very watery (like soup) and nothing like your picture. I thought I really messed this up so I added some more rice powder (I used 2 cups of raw rice so it made about 3 cups for rice powder) to try to make it look like yours. I ended up putting all of my rice powder in there but it was still like soup. 2) After 2 minutes in the microwave, I was surprised to see that it looked like your picture. The rice absorbed all of the water in the soup and it was like dduk. However, it was a bit dry and hard. I mixed it up but was still a bit dry and breaking apart (I probably should not have added that extra cup of homemade rice powder). 3) After 1 more min in the microwave, it looked ok. I did not do 2 more minutes because I was afraid that it would get really hard and dry. 4) I added a little bit of water while I was pounding away. I pounded a lot to make sure that it has the right texture and probably pounded for about 15 minutes. 5) To my surprise it actually turned out well!"
