Method of preparation
  1. 1.

    Place the cold rice in a rice cooker and add hot water, stirring it very well.

    When the taste becomes sweet according to preference, transfer it into a pot and cook it on medium heat and maintain stirring to prevent burning. When it starts boiling, turn off the heat.
