Sounds quite like something I've never had before, definately going
to have to give them a try. Couple questions though.

bicarbonate of soda, I presume is american termed "Baking Soda"?


Correct.

and just how do I ground the rice?


I do it in a blender, just 3 to 4 seconds is sufficient.

and what type of rice?


Basmati is good

caster sugar?


Same as you would use for baking a sponge cake, not sure of the American
equivalent name.

I'll assume golden syrup is the american Karo Corn Syrup. LOL


Yes, I think so.

now
to find the certain items and buy me a food scale.

There is a program that Kate has got, called Master Chef or something like
it. That would give you the breakdown, but since there are 24 biscuits from
the above ingredients, and I would recommend just 2 for you (it`s what I
eat) I don`t think there is much of a worry, perhaps 2U of bolus, maybe only
1U. Or a brisk walk?

Bicarb = baking soda - *not* baking powder.

Karo syrup and golden syrup aren't the same thing, but as near as you'll
get, I think, on your side of the pond.

The following page gives conversions of some systems of measurements and
substitutions of various things like flours, fats, leavening agents,
etc:

Oh, and caster sugar is called "superfine" in the US, about half way
between granulated and confectioner's [= icing = powdered]. See:

bicarbonate of soda, I presume is american termed "Baking Soda"?


No, it isn't. Bicarbonate of soda is just that. It's an alkaline
compound that reacts with acids to produce carbon dioxide and thus
facilitate rising of the baked goods. "Baking soda" is a precisely
measured mixture of both acids and alkalines in a dry powder, that
will react to give the same result in the presence of water and
heat. Most "self-raising" flour contains baking soda or (baking
powder as it is called here).

and just how do I ground the rice?


It is often available as a flour in supermarkets or asian food
supply stores. You could grind it in a food processor, but the
result may be a little "grainy".

and what type of rice?

I don't think it would matter.

caster sugar?

Caster sugar is also available in most supermarkets in the cooking
supplies section. You can also grind normal sugar to achieve the
same result. But measure the amount required AFTER grinding.

I'll assume golden syrup is the american Karo Corn Syrup.


Noooo. It is a by-product of sugar made from sugar cane. Sort of
like liquid raw sugar. It contains a small percentage of molasses,
and is acidic. It is often used with the above mentioned
bicarbonate of soda instead of baking soda. Whether the Karo Corn
Syrup would make a good substitute or not is unknown to me.

LOL now
to find the certain items and buy me a food scale.


Best of luck. The whole recipe sounds to me like it came from
Australia. All the ingredients are easily obtainable here.

You may have to experiment. If you like the result it may never
matter if it is just like the Ozzie one or not.
Even when all the ingredients are correct and identical, different
cooks still seem to produce different results for any recipe anyway.
And who's to know or compare?

Have fun.

you more than you probably want to know about the differences.

We do not have anything in this country called "Caster sugar" unless you
have a store that sells imported items. It is not located in the baking
aisle.

We do have a dark corn syrup here. Not sure if that would work or not.

I collect cookbooks. I just hate it when I get a foreign cookbook with a
recipe that sounds good, but I have no idea where to find the ingredients or
how to measure them.

I believe caster sugar is the same as superfine sugar, which comes in a
small one pound box with a pour spout. Super fine sugar is granulated into
much finer crystals than normal granulated sugar. Domino makes it and you
can find it with the baking supplies.
