    Made it


    1. In a large bowl, combine the rice flour with the water and stir until the water has been incorporated completely. Use your hands to feel for lumpy pieces and break them up. The texture will be smooth and fine, thick like pancake batter. It is better to err on the drier side, as other ingredients will add moisture to the mix. Set aside.
    2. In a skillet, make garlic oil. Do this by heating peanut oil and then adding the garlic to the oil. Cook the garlic until browned, and then remove the garlic to prevent it from burning.
    3. Quickly stir fry half of the daikon in the peanut oil and remove before it gets over cooked. Set aside.
