Friends, are you up for a simple, cozy, and flavorful Thai recipe?
This is honestly one of the BEST rice dishes I’ve ever had, and yet it’s super easy! I first tried this combination of sticky rice with green curry at a Thai restaurant called Dok Boua a few months ago. It took me a few tries before perfecting the sauce, which is now one of my favorite green sauce. It’s spicy, creamy, and flavored with basil, cilantro, mint, and lemongrass!
Not talented with chopsticks? This recipe is definitely for you! The sticky rice makes it 100X easier to take big portions of rice using chopsticks.
Sticky rice also called glutinous rice, or sweet rice is usually steamed instead of boiled like regular rice, making it fluffy and moist. I first tried soaking for one night and then steaming it using a colander placed on top of a pot with boiling water (as I don’t have a bamboo steamer). The thing is, it took over 50 minutes to cook! If you have a bamboo steamer, the cooking time may be quicker, probably around 20 minutes….
