Does anyone have any rules or tips for making "sticky" rice.
When I cook rice it's always separate grains and never clumped together. I've tried it in my rice cooker, my slow cooker and even tried it in the microwave oven but no success.

Atheist, a knob of butter may do the trick.
yes, you need the right kind of rice....especially nowadays when "ordinary" rice is designed not to be sticky.

We have rice about 3 times a week and we only use Basmati ..
After listening to all kinds of ideas on how to get perfect rice every time, we tried them all, but now think we have cracked it now and just assume that it will be perfect every time.

For two people we use just under 'one measured cup' of rice.
Rinse the rice in a sieve under running water ..
Add to the pan..
Then add just one and a half cups of water ..
Bring to the boil .. and put the lid on..
Turn it off .. thats it. No simmering.. leave standing for at least 10 mins.
Then when you are ready to serve, just fluff it up with a fork.
It never fails.
We are having it tonight with a Balti .. the rice has been standing 20 mins at this point and I know it will be perfect, just when the bread is ready.
Should we have wine with this ?
yes you should. I do the same with you when I cook rice except I don't rinse. I also do 1 cup rice to two cups cold water in a covered dish in the microwave. Nuke for 10 minutes then leave it alone for 10 minutes. Fluff and serve.
Never thought of doing rice in a microwave have always boiled it.
Tonight I left the rice standing for 35 mins before serving .. it was spot on, really light and fluffy.

One for Pasta as I know she to has intolerances ..
Something new for tonight's Balti , I did Focaccia bread with Rosemary and Garlic. The recipe instructions served six .. I could only manage to eat half of it. It was superb !
It was yeast and dairy free, you must try it, only four ingredients and so simple to make.

Zabado .. when you get your tomatoes this year, make some of this bread and have a bowl of fresh tomatoes and basil with it and obviously a glass of wine. It will be a highlight of the tomato season... can't wait for the fresh fruit and veg.
Have you tried youtube?
Spend much more time on Youtube than watching TV..
alava, could you post the foccaccia recipe please?
I started typing it out and then thought ... why don't I just post the link ..

I'll give it a go Al, my favourite food is Italian. (roll on summer)
alava and others.
From now on I'll use 1.5 times by volume water to rice, bring to the boil and then tirn off the gas and leave for about 10 mins, by which time it'll be perfect. I love saving gas! I still use a bit of ghee or oil to coddle the rice befor adding liquid, and I would usually add a bit of spice or stock powder to help the flavour. Peas can be added.
Thanks for all the advice.
After you have turned the rice off .. as you say, leave it 10 mins and then give it a stir with a fork to loosen it.
Put the lid back on and leave for another 10 and it will be really loose and dry.
