After 20 minutes of steaming, open the lid and use a wooden spoon to mix the rice. This allows for the rice to evenly cook. Spread the rice evenly again and make the same hole in the center.

Steam for another 20 minutes and then pour 1/2 cup of water evenly over the rice. This prevents it from drying out. Steam the rice for another 10 minutes (50 minutes total time) and remove from the steamer. The rice should be glutinous and soft.
