I blended kale into the rice cake to make a green bun for this recipe. If you don’t want to use kale in the dough, please refer to the normal rice dough in this recipe
(1) Unlike wheat flour, glutinous flour is very easy to mix and it won’t be a big problem if the dough is a bit wet. It may stick to your hands a bit, but won’t make a mess. I personally prefer to make the dough a bit wet, so it will be easier to shape later. Plus, a wet dough will dry out a bit after being cut into smaller sized pieces later.
(2) The filling will tear the dough apart if you squeeze too hard. However, even if the filling leaks a bit, it won’t cause a problem, since the sticky rice holds its shape pretty well.
