What is Sticky Rice?
Sticky rice, also called sweet rice or glutinous rice, comes in both long-grain and short-grain varieties, and they both become sticky when you cook them.
Because the grains are super sticky, glutinous rice is typically molded and used in recipes like stuffings, dumplings, and cakes.
How to prepare it?
To use glutinous rice in recipes, it must be pre-cooked differently than regular rice. Here's how:
- Place glutinous rice in a container, cover it with water, and soak for 6-24 hours.
- Drain water, and put soaked rice in a cheesecloth-lined steamer.
- Cook sticky rice for 30-45 minutes until it's soft and ready to use.
