Tip of the Day: How to cook Sticky Rice in 6 minutes!

  1. Wash and rinse sticky rice 2-3 times or until water runs clearer.
  2.  Soak sticky rice for at least 10 minutes in warm water in a bowl. Soaking the rice is very important because it allows the rice to absorb enough water to cook properly later on. If you don’t soak the rice long enough, it will be undercooked. The water level should be just above the rice, which comes out to be 1 cup of rice and one cup of water.
  3. Use a non-plastic bowl to microwave the rice in (Corelle bowls are great) because you may melt the plastic in the microwave. Cover the bowl with a dish (a Corelle plate or a microwaveable lid) and cook in microwave on high power for 3 minutes. Stir the rice around to move the rice from the top to the bottom. You will notice that some of the rice is translucent or cooked while some still have white center or an uncooked portion. 
  4. Heat rice up again for another 3 minutes. Check and see if it is done. When cooked, all the rice should be translucent.  


Sticky rice is frequently eaten with any type of Thai laab or papaya salad
