Sticky Rice in a rice cooker

I'm not sure about this one - but according to About.com in the Thai food section, someone has posted a technique for cooking sticky rice in your rice cooker. And no, apparently you don't have to soak it over night. I haven't tried this technique yet but if you want to be the first let us know how it turns out.

Ingredients:



  • SERVES 4

  • 2 cupsĀ  "sticky" or "glutinous" rice

  • 2 1/2 cups water

  • 1/2 tsp. salt


Preparation:



  1. Place 2 cups sweet rice in your rice cooker. Add 2+ 1/2 cups water and stir.

  2. Let the sweet rice stand for 30 minutes (or longer if you want - up to 4 hours).

  3. Add the salt and stir once more. Turn on your rice cooker.

  4. When your rice cooker switches off (after 15-20 minutes), let the rice sit at least five minutes extra.

  5. Enjoy your sticky rice!


Sticky Rice Tip: Sticky rice will become sticker the longer it sits.
