Soak the rice in a large bowl with enough water to cover the rice plus 3 inches extra. Let it soak overnight or for 24 hours.
Drain the water.
(Steamer Method) Arrange the rice evenly in a lined steamer. Cover and steam for 30-45 minutes.
(Rice Cooker Method) Do NOT soak the rice. Wash and drain very thoroughly. Pour 1 cup rice into the rice cooker with approximately 2/3 cups of water.* Cover and let it cook automatically until the rice cooker turns off. For best result, use the “sweet” or “brown rice” rice cooker function. If your rice cooker doesn’t have these options, your sticky rice may not come out great but give it a try.
Fluff the rice if needed and serve or use in a recipe.
