I need help making Mushroom Crackers

I'm trying to make shrimp style crackers with mushroom instead of shrimps however I'm not having much luck.

I believe the recommended time for steaming the dough log is around 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the thickness. I have tried both times however the middle always remains dry and uncooked. I have tried increasing the cooking time up to two hours and it is still the same.

This is my recipe:

1. Mushroom Crackers

Tapioca starch 97g Mushroom (shiitake) powder 20g Tarragon 2g Coriander 1g Garlic powder 1g Sugar 2.3g Salt 2.3g Black pepper 1g Water 88g

This is my cooking method.

Add salt, sugar, coriander and tarragon to water and let soak. Add mushroom powder, pepper and garlic powder to flour and mix together.

Add water and need knead dough for several minutes until completely mixed together. Form two 1 1/2 inch logs, place on banana leaf and steam for 1 hour.

Does anyone know where I could be going wrong?

I tried adding a little more water however that made the dough too soft and did not hold its shape.

I would post a photo however I don't see how I can do that on here.

Thanks in advance.
