I have just launched “An Asian Banquet” Thermomix cookbook.  Rather than take up valuable pages in the book explaining how to make the perfect rice accompaniment to those dishes I decided I would share the recipe online. That way I could add another main meal or dessert to the cookbook.

So it took me a little while to perfect sticky rice in the Thermomix but now that I have I’m sharing my tips and technique with everyone.

How to Make the Perfect Asian Sticky Rice

  1. Chose the correct rice. Sticky rice is a different type of grain to other styles of rice. It’s long-grain, glutinous rice. An example to look out for is Jasmine rice. If you can’t find Jasmine rice look for any rice which is described as glutenous white rice.
  2. Wash the rice under running water for 1 to 2 minutes whilst stirring the rice gently with fingers. This allows the excess starch to be removed so the end result doesn’t become too gluey. It’s not necessary for the water to run clear.
  3. Allow the rice to sit in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes prior to steaming.
  4. The rice should be steamed more than boiled.

If you enjoy Asian recipes why not take a look at “An Asian Banquet”  This Thermomix cookbook contains 33 recipes from 8 Asian countries.

    Do you leave the measuring cup in or out

      Hi Sam
      It works fine either way but I tend to leave it in so there aren’t any splatters.
      Happy Cooking
