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.

my sticky rice is some medium grain rice I bought at loblaws. Mine actually takes a normal 20 minutes to cook, don't have a clue why.

it is calrose rice, and you have to cook it differently than regular rice.  they make a special metal steamer pot that gets narrow at the top, and then you put the rice in a cone-shaped bamboo steamer...you have to shake it up every once in a while....while it's cooking.....my mom is thai & that's the way she taught me to make it.

If you get the calrose rice (or botan, or any other rice on the asian aisle in the market) you can also cook it in one of these



you can pick one up for pretty cheap, and all you do is throw 3 cups rice and 4 cups water in, push the button and wait. 20 minutes later - perfect sticky rice. I think my botan bag says you can cook it on the stove in a regular pan, but I've never done that (my mom is japanese, so she always used the rice cooker, and when i moved out, i just took her hand-me-down. I'd like to try it in the bamboo steamer though - that sounds fun and I always love a reason to buy new cooking gadgets!)

I was introduced to rice steamers when I lived in Hawaii.  I've been hooked on them ever since, they make perfect rice and wonderful brown rice.  The best part is the brown bits I scrape off the bottom !

There are 2 types of "sticky" rice...

1.  There is sushi rice, which is a medium grain rice, like calrose.
2.  There is also glutinous rice or sweet rice.  This is much more "sticky" than the former.  (I think this is the type of Thai rice mentioned above.)  This is what you get when you order "sticky rice in a lotus leaf" at a chinese restaurant.
