Step 4:

Place enough water to cover the rice, and let it sit for at least a half hour.
<p>Does it matter what kind of rice? I only have jasmine rice on hand...? Can anybody help a girl out ha</p>
<p>Yes and no. Calrose rice is the absolute best kind of rice to make sticky rice with, but technically speaking any rice can be made into a sticky rice. As a rule of thumb the whiter the rice and the shorter the grain the better it will be at producing a sticky rice.<br></p>
Thank you for this info. I love sticky rice.
<p>Great job teaching! Thank you!</p>
what is this pot made of? <br>is this straight alumilium or it got a coating? very strange indeed.
OP, <br>For step 5 you don't need to wet your entire hand. Swish the rice around until it's all even on the bottom of the pot. Use 1 finger and insert straight down into the water until you just touch the top of the rice, the water level should reach your FIRST knuckle. Because a family member recently misunderstood this exact wording, the first knuckle is the joint directly above your finger nail, NOT the middle of your finger aka your middle knuckle, in short ONLY the first 1/3 of your finger. This works great for short grain &quot;sushi&quot; rice. Not all rice is the same though, so if you find that bottom of the rice is burning add a little more water or if the rice seems a bit soggy use a little less (or maybe your fingers are too long?). <br> <br>Also, when cooking other types of rice you may find a longer soak yields better results. Many newer rice cookers have buttons such as &quot;white&quot; &quot;brown&quot; &quot;quick&quot; etc. AFAIK, the only difference on the cook is how long they soak before the actual cooking starts. <br> <br>Thank you OP, good write up.
You should be a hand model! Lol, really, this looks easy. Thanks for sharing!
