Other nations choose to use it as a side dish or to prepare Spanish rice with it.

How to Cook Glutinous Rice

Glutinous rice should be cooked in a bamboo basket if possible. If you don’t have one in your kitchen, you can use a wire mesh rack in your steamer instead. You’ll need the following items:

  • 1 cup glutinous rice
  • 1-2 cups water
  • Bamboo basket or rice steamer


Step 1:
In a large mixing dish, soak the rice overnight. This results in the nicest texture for sticky rice. Water should be drained.
Step 2:
Collect rice in a bamboo basket and cover it in cheese cloth or muslin. Cook for 15 minutes on one side, then flip the cloth and cook for 15 minutes more. Cook the glutinous rice in a steamer until it reaches a sticky consistency. Cook it for a few minutes longer if it’s still watery. Serve.

What is Xoi (Sweet rice, sticky rice, glutinous rice)?

“Xoi”; or “glutinous rice”, “sweet rice”, “sticky rice” in English; can be found in many Asian dishes, especially in the South East Asia areas. Vietnamese cook “xoi” by soaking glutinous rice for four hours or until the grains have absorbed enough water. The rice will then be drained and dried, allowing the grains to remain whole, soft but not mushy, and clinging together in a lump. People can sometimes create “xoi” in an electric rice cooker by following the same steps as when cooking conventional rice. Under direct heat, however, the grain will degrade, becoming glue-like and soggy. “Xoi” can be eaten at any time of day, although Vietnamese people often pick it as a cheap and delicious breakfast food.
