Servings: 4 servings
- 2 cups sticky rice grain
- 4 cups water filtered
- 1/2 tsp salt
Choose a bag of long-grain sticky rice from the store or market.
Soak 2 cups of rice with 4 cups of filtered water in a pot for 3-4 hours. This will help the rice grains absorb the water.
Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and place the pot over high heat and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium and cover with a lid. Continue cooking for 10 minutes, allowing some steam to vent.
Do not stir while the rice is cooking. Continue cooking until all the water has been absorbed.
Serve the rice hot (and sticky!).
