Not So Perfect Homemade Garaetteok @ Korean Rice Cake

I'm sure you guys know what I'm trying to say here, my 'not so perfect' homemade garaetteok, the Korean rice cake! haha.... The rice cake isn't look as smooth as what I'm expecting. Maybe because of the local fragrant rice that I used. The texture isn't as white as the imported ones and the surface isn't look as smooth either. :o(  Hopefully, someday I'll be able to find the perfect rice for my homemade garaetteok. Probably, more experiment needed as well. :o) Wish me luck !

However, here's what I did.
(recipe adapted here or here)
Ingredients :
2 cups  fragrant white rice, soaked for at least 8 hours
1 cup boiling water
1/2 tspn  salt
1 TB sesame oil

Method :
(1) drain the rice and then blend them in 2 batches with boiling water (1/2 cup each) till smooth & fine.
(2) now, stir in the salt and mix well.

(3) pour fine rice mixture to a pan lined with silicon sheet and steam for 30 mins.

(5) once it's ready, quickly transfer steamed rice to a bigger pot lined with silicon sheet on bottom.

(6) now, add in sesame oil and start pounding the rice till soft & smooth.

(7) finally, divide rice mixture into 8 portions and then roll them into cyclinder shape, leave aside to cool completely before slicing them.
