Place 1.2 litres of water, rice and pandan leaf (tied in a knot) into the Thermomix bowl. Cook 60 min/90°C/Reverse/speed 2/MC off. The rice should be fully cooked, but al dente. Add cooking time if needed. Strain and discard liquid.
Remove rice and cool at room temperature before refrigerating until chilled.
Preheat oven to 200°C.
Place chilled rice, without the pandan leaf, and remaining ingredients into TM bowl and combine 6 sec/speed 6. Knead 3 min/Interval/dough setting.
Tip out dough onto well-floured bread mat and divide into 40g lots and roll into balls. Place onto lined baking trays.
Cover and prove until doubled. If the rice is cold, this could take 1-2 hours. Bake 10–15 minutes.
