[QUOTE=sakura_girl;926319]Sticky and jasmine rice are the only two I would ever purposefully spend money on for groceries. Both are delicious, and I would never eat anything else. I also like pearl rice, which is also expensive. I'm so spoiled as an Asian. :)[/QUOTE]
True basmati rice is probably the best rice in my opinion.
[QUOTE=Forgotmylastusername;926380]It's really nice as a sweet cooked in coconut milk and coconut sugar. It's kind of hard to get the right consistency though.[/QUOTE]
I think they cook the rice first and then pour the slop over it....
You can definitely choose your consistency of sticky rice that way, by steaming it longer or a shorter amount
Sakura, what is this pearl rice you speak of?
What is its consistency and taste?
[QUOTE=InSearchOfAbs;926250]Well, no need to worry, just dig in and start saving, cuz come Spring,
the Mormons are moving out and THEIR house will be for sale.
The only two story on the court - 4 bedrooms - and the master suite is the ONLY thing
So you can ditch all the kids that YOU PERSONALLY are going to have, downstairs.
Thank goodness you have ME to figure out your life for you. PHEW![/QUOTE]
You'll have to convince wifey to move to NORCal, as opposed to SoCal ;) ;)

It's kind of hard and lumpy but glutinous at the same time, kind of like a fusion between sticky rice and barley? Although I've only had barley in soup once. But that time, it was kind of chewy and had texture versus feeling like I was chomping through mush. You can find it at the Asian grocery store :)

I'd be in SoCal myself if there were any JOBS.
So if you want to eat, living on my court and ONLY my court is the answer. Start packing.
Thanks Sakura! Sounds VERY interesting. I'll have to give it a go when rice and I can have
a normal relationship again. :eek:
Let me know how you like it! ;)
It is lovely, but high on the glycemic index. Basmati is a lot lower. Solution
: just overcook basmati instead ;)

You're getting "mushy rice" mixed up with "sticky rice".
Make yourself some and know the difference.

You're getting mixed up between 'joke' and 'not joke' ;)
If sticky rice takes forever to digest, I'mma git me some.
I can't seem to tolerate eating large meals of meat, fat and veg anymore :(
MUST EAT SMALLER MEALS
