Hi!

I am in Bangkok for a week from New York City...

I remember (unless it was a crazy dream about chowhound) reading a post a while back saying something about a specical pot you can buy to make sticky rice. I think someone was saying where to buy it and white type of pot to buy. Does this even exist and where can I get one?

  1. You'll also need the basket to do it right!

    Example: http://importfood.com/stickyrice.html

    I often see them at small, local markets and shops
    I have seen them at Makro.
    I would think they might be found at places like Lotus or Big C.

    Considering the size of it, ordering through the link might be better!

    1. I didn't buy a pot--I find an ordinary pot works fine--but did buy the basket at Aw Taw Kaw market. I also bought a bunch of the little baskets for individual servings of sticky rice. The latter were a very good buy and easy to transport home, the former I could have bought in the US for only a few bucks (hard to bring home; they have them in Chinatown, ask on that board when you get back).

      1. Some other resources:

        Nancy Chandler's Map - details some markets; carried in most bookstores

        Thailand Forums - has Bangkok board and Shopping board

        1. Thanks everyone!

          1. Yes, there is a special pot, and you'll need a wicker basket called a huat, which suspends the rice over the boiling water effectively steaming it. Both of these can be seen on the third pic from the top here at my blog: http://realthai.blogspot.com/2006/08/...
