I first discovered these on our Bali foodie trip at Mozaic restaurant in the hand of the amazing James Ephraim. DO yourself a favor and make them. *Before cooking* The day before you wish to make these rolls, place rice into a bowl and cover. Soak for 2 hours. You will also need to refrigerate overnight too!
