Sticky Rice Steamer Basket, Imported from Thailand
Suspend this bamboo basket (huat in Thai) over several inches of fully boiling water in a special Thai steamer pot or other similar-sized pot to steam pre-soaked sticky rice covered with any pot lid. Pre-soak the sticky rice at least 4 hours or overnight before cooking. The basket may be used to drain the rice after soaking.
To remove any odor before using, allow the basket to sit for a few days with a baking soda and water paste. Then scrub and rinse well before using. To clean after use, soak the basket in warm water after use to remove any rice, using a soft brush if needed and drip dry.
If you are using an induction range, you can purchase just this basket and steam the rice over a large stock pot. This is because an aluminium pots cannot be used with induction ranges.
Basket made from handwoven bamboo in Thailand. Width 17", height 13".
