  • 1 cup medium grain rice
  • ¼ cup glutinous rice
  • enough water to cover rice
  • ¾ cup + 1 tbsp sugar

  3. Drain the rice reserving the liquid, place rice in food processor or blender then blend in high speed while slowly adding water a teaspoon at a time.
  4. Continue to blend and add water until the consistency resembles pancake batter.
  5. Once texture is smooth place mixture back to the container then cover with glad-wrap.
