Steamed Sticky Rice with Savory Pork
I made this dish for DH as dinner last Friday and it was his first time eating the Savory Pork (Fried Sun-Dried Sweet Slice Pork) which is not Bak Kwa (Chinese salty-sweet dried meat product similar to jerky). I bought the savory pork in Bangkok and it's one of my favorite food. I'm not going to put the recipe of making the savory pork as I never made and always rather buy coz it's a bit complicated with the process and ingredients but I would like to share with you how I made "Steamed Sticky Rice" with very easy and fast to make. I do like to eat steamed sticky rice with grilled chicken or deep-fried chicken. This is a typical food which you can see in Thailand and Thai people also like to eat sticky rice as well as jasmine rice.
The method below will save your time of cooking also it's suitable when you feel like cooking a small portion.
Steamed Sticky Rice (by microwave method)

1. Wash sticky rice 2-3 times and fill up the water over sticky rice. Set aside for 20 mins.
2. Pour out some water and just left enough to cover sticky rice. Wrap the bowl with cling film and put into the microwave with high power for 2 mins.
3. Bring the bowl out and open the cling film. Use fork to stir the sticky rice over and wrap with cling film again. Put into the microwave with high power for 2 mins. You might want to check is it done when 1 minute pass.
