For people who are not really familiar with rice but want to try this method of cooking, please be sure to use steamed rice (cooked rice). You could buy or purchase raw white rice (such as Jasmine) in your local grocery store (it is usually in the Asian or Mexican isle).

As an additional note, instant or microwavable rice is not recommended for this recipe.
