Daikon Radish Cakes

1.5 cups grated daikon
3/4 cup water
1 cup rice flour
1 tbsp corn starch
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp sugar
a dash or two of white pepper (can substitute ground black pepper if you can't find white pepper)
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
Place grated daikon and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool.
Meanwhile, mix the remaining ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the radish and cooking water and stir to form a dough.
Transfer dough to a greased 8x8 pan and press down with a spatula to smooth the top (the dough should be about ½ inch high and will only fill about two-thirds of the pan).
Place the baking pan in a steamer and steam for 35-45 minutes.  Remove the dough from the pan and slice into squares.
Heat about 1-2 tsp vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Transfer squares to the skillet and sauté for about 3-4 minutes per side, until they are lightly browned.
Serve immediately.
