How to make sticky rice

 
Ingredients

185g (1 cup) of white rice, short or medium grained

500 ml (2 cups) of water

2 ½ tbsp. of rice vinegar

Salt

Method


- First you must wash the rice. Place the rice in a bowl and pour warm water into the bowl. Swirl the rice around a few times and discard of the water. Do this 5 times. This gets rid of the starch in the rice and helps it stick together

- (Optional) leave the rice in warm water for 4 hours or overnight

- Place water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add salt to the water

- Pour the washed rice into the boiling water. Turn the heat down on the hob and let the rice simmer for 10-20 minutes, or until cooked. Make sure all the water has been absorbed

- Once cooked, strain the rice and leave to sit for 5 minutes in a bowl. Add rice vinegar and stir.

- The rice is ready to serve
