Sticky Rice with Fish Floss | Pulut Sambal for breakfast?

Ask any Malaysians, what's their favourite breakfast?

I am pretty confident that 99% will tell you that their favourite breakfast is either nasi lemak (creamy coconut rice), roti canai (roti pratha), fried noodles, steamed dumplings or bao, anything but cereal and toast.

Cereals are likely to be either toddlers or school going children's favourite!

Let me introduce to another favourite breakfast of mine.

It has been years since I ate Sticky Rice with Fish Floss | Pulut Sambal.

When I had my first bite (after years of longing..) of Sticky Rice with Fish Floss | Pulut Sambal recently, I could see my younger self waiting eagerly for my parents to come home with my favourite breakfast.
Spotting them from far, carrying a carrier bag filled with little parcels wrapped in banana leaves, gave me plenty of joy.

There are many variants and I have tasted quite a few myself but nothing taste like Sticky Rice with Fish Floss | Pulut Sambal from home!
Call me fussy, its OK.

How to cook sticky rice or glutinous rice?

Glutinous rice plays the supporting role in this delicious combo. The main star is still the fish floss.

However, there are few ways to cook the glutinous rice.

Glutinous rice can be cook either by

  1. Steaming as per my method in the recipe section below.
  2. Cook in microwave (cooking glutinous rice in microwave is similar to making lemang. Watch my How To video for details)
  3. Cook sticky rice in rice cooker. This is the easiest method.
If you notice, I measured glutinous rice in milli litres instead of grams.
The ratio of liquid to glutinous rice is always 1:1, then both combo will yield a nice creamy not gluggy rice.
