Perfect Steamed White Sticky Rice

  • 2 cups sticky rice (sometimes it goes by the name of sushi rice or short grain rice)
  • 4 cups of water
  1. Measure the amount of rice you are going to be using and place in a stock pot.  Keep in mind that rice expands as it cooks, so you’ll want to make sure you have a pot that is large enough.  Rinse your rice until the water is clear and drain.
  2. Add water to your rice for cooking.
  3. Bring the water and rice to a boil uncovered.
  4. Bring the heat down to a low simmer and cover the rice.  Place a lid over the rice and simmer for 20 minutes.  
  5. After 20 minutes turn the heat off and let the rice stand with the cover on for another 10 minutes.

Remove the cover and fluff with a fork. Rice should be sticky and tender.
