Glutinous rice?? I thought rice was gluten free. Or am I confusing words here?

Thanks. All is clear now. Glutinous refers to the sticky, gluey consistency and is nothing to do with gluten.  :D

I suspect that none of you westerners on this board have eaten glutinous rice before.  How interesting!   :)
Don't try to cook this unless you are good at it, or else you will give glutinous rice a bad name.

That's exactly what I did, not having a proper steamer; but the result turned out just okay.  I should have used my electric rice cooker instead of improvising a steamer that can hold three bowls.  A failure giving me a new idea, I am counting on my next trial.  Please keep posting good dishes; what else that is so regular is more fun than eating?  --- tk

I ate glutinous rice in Japan--it was called sticky rice though.  I have had it since, too, because the ESL students have a luncheon each semester, and sometimes someone brings sticky rice. I don't know if it's homemade or from a restaurant, though.

Ah - sticky rice - now I understand! That is the key to eating rice with chopsticks!
