Kow Neow ข้าวเหนียว
'Kow' means rice and 'neow' means sticky. Sticky rice is a staple in Northern and Northeastern Thailand where people eat it instead of long grain rice. Sticky rice is eaten with hands.
Sticky rice is traditionally soaked overnight and steamed, not boiled. When long grain rice is cooked, it turns from opaque to white; when sticky rice is cooked, it turns from white to translucent.
I often use leftover sticky rice to make sticky rice pudding. Left over sticky rice can also be heated and let soak in coconut milk and topped with fruit, such as mango, for a dessert.
