NOTES & TIPS
Traditionally, roasted rice powder is added to the meat mixture. To do this, grill (uncooked) rice in a pan for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Then grind the rice with a pestle and mortar or a coffee grinder to obtain a powder. Add 15 ml (1 Tbsp.) of rice powder to the cooked poultry.
