Sticky Rice SOS
A while back I bought a traditional Thai sticky rice steamer. While I abhor most single-use kitchen gadgets, I have an unending addiction to traditional cooking tools from across the globe, and thus found myself leaving my local Asian grocery with aforementioned steamer last month. I bought what I thought was the correct rice (Calrose brand) and followed the directions I’d found on the internet, but after two tries I’ve ended up with hard, undercooked rice, no matter how long I soak and steam it. I use a flour sack cloth instead of cheesecloth, could that be it? D I have the wrong type of rice? Help! What am I doing wrong?
