well I didn't want to get too fancy. I did go to the grocery store to look for short grain rice and even looked for a certain type. However, I couldn't find any? WIth short on time, I ended up buying jasmine rice from Tailand. It was super good with the curry meal I made. Some day I'm going to venture out and look for short grain rice. I don't think I want to get into the bamboo equipment though.

I have the bamboo steamer for Thai sticky rice and it's absolutely the easiest way to cook rice - it's not difficult at all!!!! You just HAVE to be sure and soak your rice - I usually soak mine for about 6 hours and I don't know if there is a minimum time that is shorter than that that will work. I did try to cook without soaking just for the heck of it because a friend convinced me it didn't have to be soaked and it NEVER cooked, even after several hours of cooking.

The equipment to do this (metal pot and bamboo basket) are very inexpensive. Just be sure to have some cheesecloth on hand to line the bamboo basket with and then fold over the soaked rice while cooking.
