  • About


  • 2 cups (400 g) glutinous rice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • Banana leaves, rinsed and cut to fit two bamboo steamer levels 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter



Put the rice in a bowl and add cold water to cover by several inches. Set aside to soak until evening.


Drain the rice in a sieve and rinse well under running water. Return it to the bowl and drizzle with the oil, tossing to coat well. Divide the rice between two 8-inch (20-cm) bamboo steamer levels lined with banana leaf circles, spreading it evenly in the trays. Bring a pot of water or about inches (4 cm) water in the bottom of a wok to a boil, place the stacked steamer on top, covered (the water should not touch the steamer), and steam for 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Serve hot.
