Glutinous Rice Recipe

Ingredients :

2 cups


1 1/2 teaspoons

6 tablespoons

4 cups

2 teaspoons

4 tablespoons

Glutinous rice

Large onions



Hot water


Toasted sesame seeds

Method :
  • Wash rice well and leave to drain and dry.

  • Slice onions thinly, keeping them uniform in thickness.

  • Sprinkle turmeric over onions and mix lightly.

  • Heat oil in a medium-size saucepan and fry onions until brown.

  • Remove 2/3 of the onions and set aside for garnish.

  • Add rice to pan and stir until it is well mixed with the oil.

  • Add water and salt, stir well and bring to the boil.

  • Turn heat very low, cover tightly and cook for 20 minutes by which time the rice should be cooked and the water completely absorbed.

  • Some people like a crust on the rice.

  • To encourage a crust to form, leave the rice on low heat for 5-10 minutes longer until a slight crackling sound is heard.

  • Serve hot, garnished with fried onion and accompanied by the sesame seed lightly bruised and mixed with a little salt.

  • This is generally served as a dish by itself, not with curries.
