Hi guys .
I'm guest .
Welcome to Asian at home .
And today I'm going to show you how to make Thai sticky rice to serve or make a lot of delicious Thai food such as papaya salad or the the meat salad or making delicious Thai mango sticky rice dessert .
You need to know how to make this basic sticky rice from Thailand .
So let's get started .
You will need only one ingredient .
Thai sticky rice .
That's all you need .
You can find this Thai sticky rice or a Thai sweet rice at your local Asian grocery stores or online .
There's two different types of sticky rice or sweet rice out there in the market .
One is a short grain sticky or sweet rice .
You know , right is made out of this short grain sticky rice .
The other one is of course the one we are going to cook today , the Thai sticky or sweet rice , it's more longer grain and also has this uh fragrance like how the chasin rice has a fragrance .
This is sticky rice , I think maybe same roots or something .
So it has a very similar unique uh fragrance into it .
What I was going uh I forgot what I was saying .
What I was saying , what I was saying ?
Something , both types of sticky rice actually will work .
This is a cooking method .
So if you cannot find this Thai sticky rice , go ahead and use the regular short grain , sticky sweet rice .
First thing is first , you need to wash your rice gently rinse the rice about 3 to 5 times or until you don't see any cloudy or milky water .
Now fill up cold water up to about one inch high from the rice .
No , the rice and the water .
You know what I mean ?
The rice , the water water is supposed to be like one inch higher from where the rice is and like am I explaining ?
I , you got it right .
I think you got it soak the rice in cold water for overnight or in a warm water at least two hours when your rice is always soft and ready to go , then get your steamer out .
Um I'm not gonna use this today , by the way .
Um This is actually Thai traditional uh steamer which is you can buy easily from online .
But today I'm just going to use my regular bamboo steamer because that's my favorite steamer .
So you can use any steamer , whatever you have in your kitchen place , a large cheese cloth on top of the steamer , then place it drain the soft sticky rice , gently spread out the rice and cover the rice with four corners of cheese cloth cover with a lid .
Now bring the steamer to a wok with boiling water .
Let it steam about 20 minutes or until your rice is fully cooked .
Oh , that is about it .
Sticky rice is just , that's it .
You can use whatever steamer you have in your , in your refrigerator , in your kitchen .
Only one thing you need to realize when you cook rice .
This method which is just steaming without any extra water .
They tend to really quickly and easily dry out .
They are face will like get dry so quick as as soon as they touch the air .
So make sure you transfer to airtight container or air tight ziplock bag or plastic bag , something like that .
Or if you have this fancy sticky rice serving thingy , then go ahead and use that .
I don't have it .
I'm sorry .
All right guys .
