Firstly sticky rice is not rice made to be sticky! No, there is no glue involve. And it is definitely not Jasmine rice. It is a type of rice that is sticky (naturally) also knows as glutinous rice. It is eaten more so in the north and north east of Thailand. It is eaten with your hands by making the rice in to a little ball. I have very fond memories running around as a kid with a sticky rice ball with Thai omelette inside.
