May 25 Rice

 A Vietnamese friend of my mother's told me: put rice in the pan, set it in the sink and put your little finger on the top of the rice. Fill the pan with water until the first knuckle touches water. Boil, then simmer for 20 minutes. Perfect sticky rice. I think the best kind.


  1. Yes, it needs to be sticky, southeast Asian style. I do the same rice measuring trick (if the pan is big enough - I have big hands), but I cheat just for two of us, and cook it in the microwave on high for ten minutes, then let it stand, covered.

  2. We always use a rice cooker now, but this is a good tip.
