Glutinous Rice


  • 2 cups of sticky rice powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds    ( for pounded sesame salt )
  • Some boiled beans and fried dry fish
  • 3 onions ( 1 for cooking with sticky rice, 2 for frying )


Rinse the sticky rice and soak it for some time. Add some oil and turmeric powder in non-stick frying pan and heat it. When it begins to sizzle, add the shredded onion. Then put the sticky rice and some salt in it and stir it well. Then, add some water and boil the sticky rice covering it with a lid. Meanwhile, pound a tablespoonful of sesame seeds and a teaspoonful of salt in the mortar. Give an occasional stir to the sticky rice and pour a little more water in the frying pan until it is well-cooked. Afterwards, leave it with low heat until the outer part of sticky rice becomes the crusts. Put Si-Hta-Min on the plate, sprinkle pounded sesames salt and fried onion and serve it with either boiled beans or fried dry fish.
