Glutinous rice is a type of short-grained Asian rice that is especially sticky when cooked. It is called glutinous in the sense of being glue-like or sticky and not in the sense of containing gluten; on the other hand, it is called sticky but should not be confused with the other varieties of Asian rice that become sticky to one degree or another when cooked. In comparison with those rices, sticky rice is very sticky.

One amazing thing about this "glutinous rice" is that it has been widely used throughout the history of Asia, and especially today. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Thai, Vietnamese, Filipino, Burmese, Malaysian and etc.


Another interesting fact is, it can also be used to make drinks! Resulting with the Choujiu (Chinese Beverage), and Sato (Thai rice wine).

Yumm! Yumm! Yumm! The sweet and tasty suman!

~ Indeed glutinous rice has a lot of uses, and can make a variety of treats. But do you know about it? Have you ever had a treat made from it? How did you enjoy it? Please discuss...


~ Reason for thread: This is to show and inform people about the glutinous rice. And savor the fun of talking about it.


Note: Searched for Glutinous rice, found NO satisfactory results. If I am wrong, I am more than happy to cooperate.
