Note: Glutinous rice (also known as sticky rice) can be found in most Asian grocers. It has opaque, pearly white grains, not the translucent grains of regular rice. For best results, use ground dried Thai chilis and palm sugar, though red pepper flakes and regular sugar will do. Adjust all sweetness, heat, and acidity to fit your taste.
