Sticky Rice Chicken Burger ( Kai Yang Kow Nieow )


I have a small confession: this recipe was invented by MacDonalds in Thailand for their Thai customers. Thailand people eat mainly rice rather than bread and a burger with a bread bun isn't like their normal food. So MacDonalds invented the sticky rice burger, where the bun is replaced by as glutinous (sticky) rice patty. This recipe uses the same trick, if you are not familar with sticky rice, read the ingredients section of this site - you cannot use regular rice, and it must be prepared by steaming.
