       Title: STEAMED STICKY RICE - KHAO NEOW
  Categories: Thai, Rice
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       4 c  Sticky Rice
  
   Sticky rice is a glutinous rice eaten by the people of the North and
   Northeast region of Thailand.  The rice is sometimes referred to as sweet
   rice because it has a sweet flavor.  It is often used to make rice wine and
   vinegar.
   ~--------------------------------------------------------------------- ~--
   Place the rice in a saucepan or bowl and add enough water to cover. Rub the
   rice between your hands several times and drain off the milky water. Add
   clean water and repeat the process until the water runs clear.
   
   Soak the rice overnight in enough water to cover or, to save time, the rice
   can be soaked in hot water for 3 hours before steaming, rather than
   overnight.
   
   Drain the rice and place in a cloth-lined steamer or in a steaming basket.
   Place the basket over a pot of boiling water, making sure that the basket
   does not touch the water.  Cover the steamer and steam for approximately 30
   minutes.
