Thai Sticky Rice
It's worth investing in a traditional steamer pot to make this staple of northern Thai cuisine.Austin Bush

Sticky rice is essential to the cuisine of northern Thailand, where it’s common practice to grab little clumps from a heap of chewy glutinous grains to use as a sort of edible eating implement. Unlike most rice, which is referred to as steamed even though it’s actually boiled, sticky rice is in fact set over bubbling water and cooked with the hot steam.
