Chef's Tips:

  • Add more water or broth at the end of cooking to adjust the consistency.
  • What's glutinous rice? It's a type of rice that is low in amylose, and which is especially sticky when cooked. It makes an appearance in lots of Asian cuisine.
  • If you can't find converted brown rice, you can substitute the same amount of regular brown rice.
