2. Combine the glutinous rice flour and mashed sweet potato until well incorporated and smooth.
3. Add in sugar, baking powder, and combine it well to the mixture. You can use a food processor to combine it well. Then add water little by little until the mixture becomes dough like. You can feel the texture once its already good for shaping into balls.
