Bamboo rice is short grain white rice infused with pure fresh bamboo juice. This product is all natural. When cooked, it is pale green and tends to be quite moist and viscous, causing the grains to stick together. This rice is perfect for sushi and other gourmet applications. |
Bamboo Rice should be used as a side-of-plate (side dish) alternative.
Put the rice into a large bowl and fill the bowl with cold water.
Leave the rice to soak for at least 6 hours, then drain, rinse thoroughly, and drain again.
Fill a wok or heavy pan one-third full with water. Place a bamboo steamer, with the lid on, over the wok or pan and bring the water to the boil.
Uncover the steamer and place a dampened piece of muslin (cheesecloth) over the rack.
Tip the rice into the middle and spread it out a little.
Fold the muslin over the rice, cover and steam for about 25 minutes until the rice is tender but firm.
