糯米饭 Glutinous Rice

Hubby saw this recipe in d Staits Times & wanted me to give it a try. He even cut up d article & pasted it onto my to-do book (too bad he didnt incld d chef's name). But at 1st glance, I was put off by d long list of ingredients so I never really looked at it again till 2days ago, hubby asked what happened to his 糯米饭. So I decided to take a closer look at d recipe. Only then did I realise that most of d ingredients can be found in my kitchen. I only need to get d glutinous rice! So here goes.
It’s so EASY! I never realised how easy it is to cook 糯米饭 & it’s so tasty! Even Hayden who was recently having bad appetite problem, finished 1½ bowls! YUMMY! So yummy that even though am on diet, I also cant refrain from taking a bowl of it! There goes my diet but to me, it's worth it! ;-p

Try not to give Hayden too much glutinous rice as it may cause indigestion.
