ISO How to make sticky rice

I have long grain white rice. I'm making a TAI dish tonight and was wondering if I could somehow make my rice sticky?

thanks

Sticky rice is a specific type of rice. It's short grain rather than long grain. However, your salmon will be great with the long grain rice.

Sorry. I read your salmon thread then this one and assumed you were making the salmon.

Regardless. The long grain rice will work. It just won't be as authentic as the sticky rice.

cooking sticky rice

Sticky Rice
First, you need to get the correct type of rice. You need to purchase "glutenous rice". Regular Jasmine rice or other types of regular rice will not work properly. Soak the glutinous rice in water for about 4 hours. Set up a steamer, wrap the rice in muslin (cheese cloth), and steam for 15 minutes. Turn the muslin-wrapped rice over, and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Be careful not to over-cook the rice, or it will become quite mushy. The consistency you're looking for is slightly sticky, but not watery. The rice should hold together, but individual grains can still be easily seperated.

oops forgot....

Don't forget to rinse the rice 3 or 4 times until the water runs clear before soaking it.

A microwave rice cooker or plug in steamer make fine sticky rice. Short grain preferred but most types work.

Or don't, and then you will definitely have sticky rice, no matter what type of rice you use.

This is true, the taste is best when washed out.

Though the rice is stickier when not rinsed, I find it rather starchy. If youre going to season it well, I suppose it doesnt matter though.
