Then with as little water as possible blend the rice.
You should attain semi-dough like dumpling with the blended rice.
Make small balls from the blended rice dumpling. If things get sticky, dip your hand in a bowl of water. A wet hand avoids sticking of things to the hands. And thus making rice ball gets easier.
