Sticky rice

We started eating a lot of sticky rice around 1968. Dad would make it and we chowed it down. He loved it with every meal and I haven't been able to replicate it. I've tried a few brands . Anybody have a recipe? Thanks.

Any sort of Asian rice at the grocery is sticky. At least the stuff I get is. Its the only style I'll eat at home (I love rice, but that's my favorite).
So let me fill my children's hearts
With heroes tales and hope it starts
A fire in them so deeds are done
With no vain sighs for moments gone

Not washing the rice = more sticky

More water = more sticky

Shorter grain = more sticky

So first, it's important to define "sticky rice," are you referring to the typical bowl served in a Japanese restaurant or Chinese place or are you referring to the dish known as "Sticky Rice" in a Thai restaurant, which requires a completely different rice and cooking method.

If you are talking about the typical Asian rice then it is a simple matter. BUY A RICE COOKER and follow the directions and you will have pretty much perfect rice. (How anyone survives without a rice cooker is beyond me!) Note that short grain rice (the stuff you tend to get in Japanese places and always in Sushi) is a bit different that long grain rice (Thai and Chinese restaurants). They have different flavors and use a different amount of water.

Wash the rice...not to clean it, but to remove the starch...this is super important with short grain rice, otherwise you will have a slimy mess.

For plain ole Japanese rice: https://www.you...e.com/watch?v=-eed1Kz-3DE

If it's just you and you don't wanna spend big $ get this rice cooker. It'll do the job fine. The company makes top line cookers, and it's easy to spend 120.00 on one of the fancier ones....
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

Go to an asian market and get glutinous rice aka sweet rice and steam it in a bamboo basket that you can also get from the market. Also make sure to soak the rice in a bowl of water for at least 4 hours and wash it prior to steaming. I promise you the best sticky rice if you try it.

Edit: I usually steam for about 20 minutes then flip the rice mass in the basket and steam for 5 more minutes.
