sweet rice the best thing to do is Thai Rice Pudding or a sweet version of the rice steamed in a banana leaf. Not good for savory dishes.

Chinese: Eight Treasure Rice, Congee 1:2 with long grain, Pearl (or Porcupine) Balls (pork meatballs rolled in soaked glutinous (sticky, sweet) rice and steamed -- from the Time Life Foods of the World China.
Japanese: Mochi -- and much more, of course.
Thai: the pudding is usually made with black sweet rice, white can be used.
Look for more on food52, most from the Bulk Bin contest.
Why not in America? Rice here is supposed to be fluffy -- our loss!
