Thai sticky rice is a staple dish of the northeast of Thailand. Its characteristic is….well…sticky which is perfect with barbecue chicken and the famous Thai papaya salad, Som-tum. It is quite tricky to make the perfect sticky rice as it can be too mushy or too dry. The secret is a good preparation and make sure you keep an eye on the steamer.
I use The traditional Thai bamboo container called "Kra-tip". You can keep the cooked glutinous rice warm in it for hours, it is easy to clean and the rice rarely sticks to the bottom.
