101: "Sticky" rice

Sticky rice, or jasmine rice, is extremely easy to make.

Into a small pot (one with a lid, preferably clear), add: 1 cup rice, 1.75 cups cold water. Swirl the pot a bit if you like, but DO NOT STIR.

Cover the pot and place on a burner set to medium heat. DO NOT STIR.

Bring the pot to a boil but (you guessed it) DO NOT STIR.

Allow to boil for a minute or two, and then turn the heat off. Do not lift the lid, do not peek, and DO NOT STIR.

After about twenty minutes your rice will be perfect!

For asian style dishes, use a spoon to place a scoop of sticky rice in a bowl or plate - but still do not stir.
