Glutinous Rice

This rice is a type of rice that naturally contains a lot of starch. The rice sticks well together after cooking. This rice is a sister of the Japanese sushi, Spanish paella, and Italian risotto rice varieties. This sticky rice is a bit oval in structure and absorbs less water than regular rice. Glutinous rice really lives up to its name since the rice clumps after cooking. The rice is easy to pick up with fingers or sticks and is mainly considered as dessert rice. The rice can also be used as a base for the Filipino Lugaw, this is rice soup with ginger and chicken.
