Thai Sticky Rice (Thai Sweet Rice)

Boiling water

Water in a steamer

A traditional way to cook sticky rice is to soak rice in cold water overnight or at least 3 hours, then steam over boiling water for 25 to 30 minutes.

For a quick method, soak rice in 3 cups of boiling water for 15 minutes. While rice is soaking, prepare steamer by putting 10 cups of water in the steamer and bringing it to boil.  Place a cloth napkin on steamer tray. Drain soaked rice through the napkin letting the soaking liquid drain into the bottom of the steamer. Fold the 4 sides of napkin to cover rice and put the lid on the steamer. Steam sticky rice for 20 minutes.  Remove cooked rice from the steamer and it is ready to be eaten as part of a meal or used to prepare other dishes.
