Re: making rice like the resturants

For really good sticky rice, you need to buy glutinous rice, soak it in cold water in the fridge overnight, then steam it in a bamboo basket. You can use a rice cooker for the last step instead of the bamboo basket, but it won't be exactly the same.

This is an example of the correct rice: http://www.amazon.com/Thai-sticky-ri.../dp/B000F2VESU

Also, if you are used to minute rice, a rice cooker and regular white or even brown rice is going to be WAY stickier than that. Minute rice is nothing like real rice.
