3⅓criceJapanese white rice. Standard rice in Hawaii.
½capple cider vinegar½ c + 1 tbsp (=9 tbsp)
14packetsTruvia½ c stevia
Wash and rinse 3⅓ c of white rice. Add this to the rice cooker pot and add water to the 3 c line. Because we'll be adding vinegar later, we want the rice to have a little less water than usual.While the rice cooks, mix the apple cider vinegar, salt, Truvia/Stevia, and hondashi in a small bowl. Set aside for later.Do the next steps quickly: When the rice is done transfer the rice to a large mixing bowl within 5 minutes. The rice is at its hottest at this point which will help the flavor to soak in.
As soon as all the rice has been transferred into the large mixing bowl, evenly pour the vinegar mixture all over the rice.
With a rice spatula, gently mix and fold the rice for 45 - 60 seconds. Let the rice rest in the bowl uncovered at room temperature to cool off for a couple of hours. The vinegar will evaporate and the rice will be fluffy, sticky, and ready to use.
In her regular sugar version, Mom uses a 1/2 c of sugar.
