How to Make It
Put 2 cups of the rice in a large bowl and cover with 3 inches of cold water. Let soak for at least 8 and up to 24 hours.
Drain the rice and put it in a cheesecloth-lined steamer basket, Chinese steamer or large sieve. Set the steamer in a large saucepan over boiling water. Cover tightly and steam the rice for 25 minutes; the rice must be over, no in, the water. Be sure that the pan doesn't run dry; add water if necessary.
Put the rice in a basket or bowl; cover with a cloth to keep it warm and prevent it from drying out.
