Easy Sticky Rice

READY IN: 32mins

This is a easy & perfect sticky rice. I've made it several times & have not had a failure yet. It comes from stephskitchen.com (a great recipe site). I cannot enter that you can use either short or medium grain rice, either one is okay. Do not use long grain.

Here, in Hawaii, sticky rice is served with all meals. We all have rice cookers. Using rice measuring cup, or 2/3 C, measure rice and put in pot. Cover with water and let set for 20 mins. Rinse well X 3. Using same measurement cup, add equal amounts water and then top with about 1/4 C more water. Put pot into rice cooker and steam until done. Always use medium grain rice. For a normal family serving use about 3 C rice and 3 1/4 C water. The only topping used, if any, is nori (dried seaweed mix).
