Indulge in these tasty truffles made with creamy rice, matcha green tea and vanilla all coated in decadent white chocolate. For the perfect texture, use Mahatma® Short Grain Rice for Sushi, cooked to perfection with sweetened condensed milk.
In a saucepan, combine sushi rice, 2 1/4 cups of water, sweetened condensed milk and salt. Bring to boil; reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.
Stir in matcha green tea powder and vanilla. Let stand at room temperature, covered, for about 1 hour or until cooled and thickened.
Roll tablespoonfuls into balls; place on parchment paper-lined tray.
Place melted white chocolate in bowl; using 2 forks, dip balls into melted white chocolate, letting excess drip back into the bowl. Transfer to clean parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes or until chocolate is hardened.
To add an elegant touch, drizzle more chocolate over the top in a zigzag design. Use white chocolate or dark chocolate if desired. To drizzle, use a piping bag or a plastic bag and snip off a small portion of the edge so you can more easily control your decoration.
The secret to giving these truffles the perfect texture? Sushi rice! That’s right, using short grain sushi rice that has been cooked in a mix of water and sweetened condensed milk gives these treats a creamier bite. We suggest using Mahatma® Short Grain Rice as the grains are perfectly made to cook up stickier and more compact, so rolling these truffles will be a breeze.
