  1. Place rice in a bowl and cover with cold tap water. Rinse, and repeat 4 more times, until the rinse water is clear.
  2. Drain the rinsed rice thoroughly, and place in a medium sized pot. Add the 500g water, urfa biber, and salt. Place over medium high heat and bring to a boil, stirring so rice doesn’t stick to the bottom. When the water comes to a boil, reduce heat to the lowest setting and cover the pot. Set a timer for 15 minutes.
  3. After 15 minutes, remove the rice from heat, leave covered, and set timer for 10 minutes.
  4. After the rice has rested for 15 minutes, transfer to a bowl and add the date condiment and sucrose. Fold the rice until evenly incorporated and it increases in stickiness.
  5. Transfer to a half sheet lined with magic paper and spread into an even layer. Transfer to the back speed rack to cool. When cool, pack into delis for storage.
