"I found this in Cook's Country magazine. Sticky rice we can make at home and use our chopsticks?! YAY! I've stirred, lid off, lid on, added oil, etc, to try and make my rice really sticky. There's nothing special here as far as ingredients, it's just a very simple method! Thanks Cook's Country and Chef Kelley Baker! Do not stir the rice as it cooks. The finished rice can stand off heat, covered, for up to 15 minutes."

"This was easier than I thought it would be and is now my go-to method for cooking rice. The only thing I did differently was to let the rice soak up the extra water for 30 minutes or so after rinsing and before cooking. (Not soaking in water, just the water left clinging to the rice.)."
"No stars applied at this time, as I used parboiled long-grain rice after discovering that I did not have regular long-grain rice on hand as I had thought. As a result, my rice cooked up nicely, but it was not sticky at all. That is not the fault of the recipe; so it would be unfair to assign stars at this time. I plan to try again once we eat the rice from this batch; at that time I will assign stars. For now, don't try this with Uncle Ben's!"
"Very good sticky rice! I like white rice this way if I do not cook it with chicken stock or add orzo; just plain rice nicely salted. Will use this recipe often. Made for I Recommend Tag."
"Thanks! I used this to make california rolls. and it all held together perfectly."
"I was really impressed with this rice! I used Thai Jasmine rice, and it came out just like the stuff I get when eating out. I was a little worried that it might seem too bland to me because I usually make Mexican rice at home, but it was surprisingly good even by itself. Super-simple to make, too. I served this with some Tilapia with Thai sauce, and then I used the leftover rice in some spicy Asian chicken wraps (sticky rice, bok choy, carrots and chicken breast chunks in chili garlic sauce, all wrapped in a whole grain tortilla, kinda like something you can get at Fresh City). Thanks for posting this great basic recipe! :) Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6"
"Yum! Really nice sticky rice. I served this with recipe #169928 and the sauce from that was very nice on the rice too. Easy and good. Thanks Chef PotPie for a winner. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6."
"Sticky Rice 101 . . . PERFECT. Only thing different is I added a little grated ginger. Made for ZWT #6."
"Yep! Worked like a charm! I had plain and then with Recipe#425437 and it was great both ways. Thanks! Made by a fellow Looney Spoon for Zaar World Tour#6! :)"
"Excellent sticky rice, which is one of my favorites. The method worked great. Served this with recipe #405625 and it was perfect. Thanks Made for ZWT #6 :)"
"simple and great!"
"The rice came out perfect. I can't believe it was so easy to make. I gave up washing the rice about the 5th time around and it still turned out good. I certainly will be using this recipe whenever I need sticky rice."
"Perfection! I loved the ease of this recipe and that there wasn't any butter or oil used."
"Wow! This is the first time I have ever been able to make sticky rice! It took me about 10 minutes to rinse 1 cup of rice (I halved the recipe as I was only serving 2 people). Directions were very easy to follow, and the results were great! Thank you!"
"OH yes ma leetle Potty Pie! This is IT! This is rice I can make OUT of my rice cooker - with ease! Great recipe - so simple and it ACTUALLY WORKS! I made this to go with a curry - an Asian style curry - it was just brilliant. I love recipes like this, a real classic and simple rice - a keeper for me! Made for ZWT 4 - and my teammate! Thanks! Edited to add: I DO have photos, but my camera is packed for my trip back to England in 24 hours - so I will post them later! FT :-)"
"It was sticky! I could pick it up with chopsticks! Yay! Thank you for a recipe I'll use time and time again."
"Perfect sticky rice! I don't know if the trick is in the rinsing, or in the uncovered method until the water falls below the rice level, or what. I don't care, because it works! I have always been able to make American-style fluffy rice, but never really was able to pull off sticky rice. Well, ChefPotPie, you've helped me chaange that. Thank you! Made for ZWT 4."
"This is ABSOLUTELY IT! I used Jasmine rice, and thought I'd be rinsing FOREVER...but it was worth it because it worked perfectly! Our Chinese buffet holds their rice in a crock pot, so I did the rice first and put it in a small slow cooker on low. It held BEAUTIFULLY! And it was a TON of rice too! The 4 of us had it with orange chicken, and almost 1/2 of it is still left...so I'm going to try using it in a casserole later in the week! Thanks for posting a FOOLPROOF recipe with no butter or oil!"
