4 cloves garlic, minced
salt and ground pepper to taste 
2 pcs. chicken bouillon/broth cubes (optional)

Wash glutinous rice twice and drain water. In a rice cooker or pot, add washed rice then add 2 and ½ cups water (or depending on the variety of rice you have).

Add and dissolved turmeric powder and 1 broth cube in the pot with rice. This will give the rice a flavour. Start cooking it just like cooking regular rice. Once cooked, set aside.
