I read somewhere that if you add wheat flour to rice it makes it sticky. I love sticky rice, and i was wondering how you make it sticky. How does the wheat flour thing work? what are other ways to make it sticky? thank you!

Sushi rice is usually sticky... maybe you could try finding a recipe for it? Haven't ever heard of the wheat flour thing - I'm curious to know if anyone knows what that's all about!

There's a different type of rice you use if you want to make the type of sticky rice that the Thai's eat.  I'm sorry I can't remember the type but if you are lucky enough to live near any thai grocery stores you could ask.  It is prepared differently as well.  You have to soak it overnight and then it is drained and I usually put it in a bamboo steamer that has been lined with cheesecloth and it is steamed until done.  I'm sure you could find more explicit directions if you do a search.  I love sticky rice too!

I make sushi at home quite often and it is a different type of rice, but the newer varieties (i guess because of popularity) don't have to be soaked over night.  Although, it still takes about an hour and a half to make.  Try checking your local ethnic food mart and I'm sure they can point you in the right direction.

All you really need to look for is medium grain rice. Walmart has a brand in the oriental section. Its called Botan: Calrose Rice. Comes in a 5 lbs bag. I think its about $2-3. Takes about 45 mins to make.

Basmati rice is a long grain and naturally sticky.  At least, mine always is, but that may be because I don't soak it before I make it, which the instructions say to do for a half hour.  I get mine at Super G in neat little cloth zippered purses from Pakistan.

Hrm, I wonder if I'm doing something wrong?  Maybe it's just the water where I live.  Who knows?  Either way, I like my all my rice sticky, so It doesn't bother me.  Smiley

Basmati isn't meant to be a sticky rice. Long-grain rices like basmati, jasmine, and so on are supposed to cook up light and loose when cooked properly.

For sticky rice, and for dishes like risotto, you want medium-grain rices, which cook up sticky and more dense.

There are differences in cooking techniques as well, depending on the result you'd like to get.
