A sweet rice dish. I use Jasmati rice and make it so it's sticky, because we like it that way and because it's easier for my husband to eat. He has Cerebral Palsy and unless the rice sticks together..it will become airborne! I make rice in the microwave often because it's fast and easy and I can be using my stovetop for other things. After the rice was done I added frozen peas and pearl onions and put it all back in the microwave for three minutes with some margarine. You could, of course, cook the rice any way you like and use whatever your favorite rice is.
