Recipe Notes

I took the advice of this article on activating foods to prepare this recipe. You may choose not to soak the rice prior to cooking. Not soaking the rice will make the recipe quicker to prepare.

I cooked the rice in a rice cooker, using the guides provided for the amount of liquid to rice quantity.
