Sticky Rice & Steamer help needed...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an older rice cooker that doesn't have a non-stick insert. How do I keep the rice from sticking to the pan?

Also, I need a recipe for Sweet Sticky Rice. Anyone?

I'd love useing a rice steamer better if the rice didn't stick...

TIA,

Katie

Hi-
I have no advice about a rice steamer, I've never used one. I have made sweet sticky rice however. It's a different kind of rice - glutenous/sweet rice that I found in a asian grocer - if you have a good one they might be able to help you make it too! The steamer used to make it looks like a bamboo cone - like a reusable coffee filter kwim? You need a pot that will hold it high enough above the water and with a lid that fits tightly - sort of a tall skinny stock pot, I've seen them sold online. Here's a link I found with good instructions - it say's you can do small amounts without the special steamer cone. This is a super addictive dessert, good luck!

Maddysmommy,

Have you made it without Mangoes? We tend to have reactions to mango in our house.

The mangos are just added to the top, not cooked in so you could leave them out for sure - try pineapple, or peach maybe?
