Steamed Rice Cake

When I first made this Steamed Rice Cake, I unknowingly swapped the amount of rice flour and plain flour. The result of my error was a soft and light rice cake. :) 

This time round, I used the correct amount of rice flour and plain flour. I am not sure if I have done correctly; the resulting rice cake is slightly on the chewy side and less fluffy. As for the texture, I preferred the first version, i.e. the mixed-up recipe. Haha. Nonetheless, the rice cake tastes marvelous and fantastic. :)

Below is the correct version of the recipe. Feel free to swap the amount of the flour like I did and let me know which one you prefer. :)
