Perfect Sticky Rice Everytime

Ingredients

Short-grain (white rice (1 cup))

Water (1 cup)

Note: 1 cup of rice will be enough for a 2-person serving. Use more if you need - just remember a 1:1 ratio (rice to water.)

Directions

Use any cup and fill it up to the brim with rice.

Then pour the rice into a pot (or your rice-cooker bowl). Rinse the rice in cold water. Then pour out the residual water. Rinse and pour-out the water 4-5 times or until the residual water becomes clear.

Then re-fill the pot with cold water and let the rice soak for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, pour out the residual water from the pot - try your best not to lose any rice grains as you pour out the water.

Then use the same cup from Step 1 - and fill it up the brim with water. Carefully pour the water into the pot with the rice (or rice cooker bowl). Now, you should have a 1:1 ratio of water-to-rice in the pot.

If you have a rice cooker, place the bowl in the cooker and turn it on. Then you're finished.

If you do not have a rice cooker, simply place a lid on the pot (important!). Then put it on the stove - on high heat and bring it up to a boil.

When you hear the pot boiling, reduce the heat to a medium. Let it cook for 5 minutes (keep lid on).

Then reduce heat to a low. Let it cook for 10 minutes (keep lid on).

Then turn off the heat. Let it rest for 5 more minutes (keep lid on).

Total cooking time should be roughly 20-25 minutes.
