Cooking Sticky Rices
Sweet Sticky Rice
Steaming Sticky Rice
It is not recommended that you cook sticky rice in a rice cooker
Cover sticky rice with room temperature water at least 3 inches above the rice. Let rice sit for 2 hours or overnight,
then drain off any excess water
Steam sticky rice in a steamer with a lid over high heat for about 30 minutes, or until the rice is soft.
Flip the rice over so that the sticky rice on the top will go on the bottom and steam with the lid on for 5 more minutes.
You can keep the rice warm for a few more minutes with the steamer on simmer,
or remove it and keep it in a thermal-controlled container.
