I got this recipe from a grandmother in Phnom Penh. It's normally eaten for breakfast in Cambodia, but westerners would probably consider it lunch or dinner food. If you can't find the powdered rice root, don't worry, it's not that importaint. For the toasted rice powder, toast the rice in a dry pan until brown and grind to a powder.
