    well, you can roll it long and curl like pretzel and the only thing with pretzel is that before baking it is bath in Bicarbonate soda water first.

    Here we have one type of yeast that make rice wine , not the instant yeast that make bread. Its compact and look like a dry biscuit but white in colour. We just break it fine and put on the hot rice , it will dissolved and add some sugar . cover and leave for few days to ferment , right? I use rice wine for my cooking too when I am in confinement.
