Thai Lao Black Sticky Rice is also known as “Khao Gum”. Some people call it “purple sticky rice” or “wild sticky rice”. Black sticky rice is usually made into dessert or eaten as a main meal. You can also use black sticky rice to make Khao Dome which is coconut sticky rice wrapped in banana leaf.

Make sure, when purchasing black sticky rice, that the label reads “Glutinous” and that it is a product of Thailand. The method of cooking black sticky rice and white sticky rice is the same…by using a bamboo steaming basket and steaming pot. Black sticky rice will stain the bamboo basket and your hands. Do not wash the bamboo basket with soap. The stain will naturally fade over time.
