* In 1 cup of rice, add water just slightly above the level of rice, turn the stove on.
* Let this cook on high heat for 3-4 minutes, after that cook till done on low heat.

* The veggies need to be slightly crunchy, so do not overcook them. Add the vinegar. Mix well.
* Serve the veggies on a bed of sticky rice and tofu. Sprinkle some bean sprouts on top.

Gluten-free Chapati
Potato starch - 1/2 cup (use potato starch and not potato flour. Potato starch will provide you with light, fluffy baked goods. Whereas flour will be hard like stone)
Tapioca starch - 1/4 cup
White rice flour - 1/4 cup
Brown rice flour - 1 and 1/2 cup
* Combine everything together and form a dough. Add water slowly, knead the dough for a long time. The more time you spend with the dough, the elasticity of the dough will be better.
* Make small dough balls.
* Roll them like chapati. Go slow, this is not your regular wheat flour so it will require a little practice.
* On a hot pan or tawa, place the chapati. On low medium heat, cook it for 30-40 seconds, flip it and cook the other side too. Then start pressing the chapati on the sides with a cloth, the chapati will start rising like a balloon.
* Do this on medium heat. When the chapati looks done, remove it.
