To make sticky rice in a rice cooker, see: Easy Sticky Rice.

Step 1: Measure out 2 cups of the sweet rice and place in a pot.

Sticky rice can be purchased at Asian food stores (Note that when it's sold in the package, it is labelled as "sweet rice" or "glutinous rice".) Here I am using the Thai variety, which is longer grained than Japanese or Chinese sweet rice.

Note: In Thailand, sticky rice is steamed in long funnel-like baskets. Although not strictly authentic, this method for boiled sticky also turns out extremely delicious, and it's so much easier.
