Facts. Finds. Flavors. Sticky rice is an Asian rice that becomes sticky when cooked. Look for packages labeled as long-grain sticky rice or glutinous rice located either with the grains or in the ethnic section.
To prepare the rice, soak 2 cups rice and 3½ cups water in a large saucepot 30 minutes or up to 4 hours. Stir in ½ teaspoon salt and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, partially covered, 10 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed; do not stir the rice. Remove rice from the heat and let stand covered 10 minutes.
