I've had numerous requests for this method of cooking plain rice. I've never seen it anywhere else. It's been the only way I cook plain rice since I first tried it. And it's so simple to make! My pastor went nuts over it, wanting to know if he could get the recipe. He said it reminded him of the sticky rice that is served in many oriental restaurants. It's comes out steamed, rather than boiled. Cooking time includes soak time for the rice; rice cookers will vary in cooking time.
