What kind of rice should I use? How much water? How long does it take to cook?
Sticky rice is actually its own type of rice -- also called glutinous rice. Here's a pretty good explanation of how to cook it without the traditional (and high-maintenance) bamboo steamer basket: http://shesimmers.com/2012/08/how-to-cook-sticky-rice-the-easy-way-and-without-a-steamer.html
You need to buy sweet aka glutinous rice at an Asian market. If you don't have a steamer the microwave directions here work quite well: http://www.thaitable.com/thai/recipe/sticky-rice
