Sticky rice, also known as "glutinous" or "sweet" rice, is a staple of northern and northeastern Thai cuisine, where it is used for both sweet and savory dishes. Most rice preparations that claim to be "steamed" are misleading, seeing as the grain is actually being boiled in water. But sticky rice really is steamed, after being soaked and rinsed in water. This produces rice that is tender but chewy, with individual grains that maintain their structure while sticking together. Sticky rice is perfect for tempering the heat of spicy dipping sauces, soups, and dressings, and it pairs really well with vegetable curries.
