So, what is glutinous rice?

Glutinous rice, also known as sticky rice or sweet rice, is a short-grain rice variety commonly found in Asian cuisine. Unlike other types of rice, glutinous rice contains a high amount of amylopectin, which makes it sticky and chewy in texture when cooked. This rice is often used in savory dishes such as sushi, rice balls, and dumplings, as well as in sweet treats like rice pudding and mochi. Its unique texture and flavor make it a staple ingredient in many traditional Asian dishes, and its versatility has made it a popular choice in fusion cuisine.
