Roasted Rice Powder also known as Toasted Ground Rice, is an important ingredient to Laotian and Vietnamese dishes and some Thai and Cambodian recipes too.
Since the amount needed is usually not much, but is crucial, it's wasteful to buy a big packet not knowing when can one finish it. But here in Malaysia, it's not available at all. So... I can only make some by myself.
It's very easy.
Put some raw glutinous rice onto a pan.
Toast it on medium low heat, shaking it every now and then until it turns golden and some of them puff up.
Let it cool down and grind it to your desired texture.
I used the mill that came with my blender set to grind it fine. Takes only a few pulses.
From white glutinous rice to golden rice... and puffy too!
And yes, if you want to ask whether I washed it, nope I didn't. Like how we don't wash peanuts or almonds before roasting....
