American Sign Language: "rice"

There isn't a widespread sign for "rice" in ASL.

I've seen people cup their non-dominant hand like a bowl and then "eat" out of it with an "R" handshape. 
I've also seen a Korean sign for rice that used and "8" handshape and flicked a grain of rice into the mouth (double movement).
