Step 2: Getting Started
Add one packet of yeast to 1/2 cup of lukewarm warm water mixed with 1 teaspoon of white sugar. Set aside for five minutes to activate the yeast.
Add 1 1/2 cups of cooked lukewarm (if rice is cold, warm gently in microwave) mashed rice to a medium sized bowl, mix in the yeast/water mixture and mix well.
Cover and let rise for a few hours or overnight.
