White Short Grain Rice 

White short-grained rice are round rices with the bran coat completely removed. Very flavourful, it yields a stickier, softer product. It is especially good when a creamy texture or stickiness is desired. Also called pudding rice. This rice needs to be soaked for 20 minutes to relax the grain. Use one part rice to one and 1/8 part of water. Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and cook, covered, for 10 minutes or until done.
