Stir-fried sticky rice (glutinous rice) is a Chinese dish. It is always cooked with Chinese sausage, mushroom and roasted peanut. But, the dish can be modified according to the ingredients that are available. Use the ingredients that on hand or easy to get, home cook stir-fried sticky rice also can be savory and delicious. The rice is flavorful, soft and soggy. The cooking process is similar to Italian risotto. But people do develop “modern” way of cooking this and save some effort.
