Thai Sticky Rice
- 4 cups Thai sweet rice (available in gourmet and specialty shops)
- 4 cups cold water, plus more for soaking
Soak the rice in a large bowl of water for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in the steamer pot over high heat. Drain the soaking liquid from the rice and transfer the rice to the bamboo steamer basket. Set the basket in the pot. Cover with a pan lid. Cook for 10 minutes.
Remove the steamer basket from atop the pot and squeeze the basket to help loosen the rice. With a quick flick of the wrist, flip the rice once. Return the basket to the pot, cover, and let steam for another 10 minutes or until the rice is tender and sticky.
Let rest for 10 minutes and serve warm.
