Sticky Rice

Skip the rice cooker with fuzzy logic. Bypass the pressure cooker. Here's the simplest way to make Sticky Rice for your favorite Asian dishes. Please do not rinse your rice before cooking. That washes away the starch that makes it sticky.

Foolproof Sticky Rice
2 cups of white rice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups of water

1. Put rice in a small pot. Add olive oil and salt. Stir to coat rice.
2. Turn burner on high and add water.
3. When water boils, turn burner to lowest setting. Cover pot and set timer for 15 minutes.
4. At 15 minute mark, turn off burner. Leave pot in place for another 15 minutes.
5. Uncover pot and serve rice.
