Sticky rice is a very important food in Laos. The people of Laos eat it often. It is kept in a small basket on the table and is rolled into a small ball and eaten with your hands (it is really fun to eat). Rice is everywhere. It was given to the monks in the early morning as an offering. Early in the day, outside of many homes, you can find it cooking in a pot over a fire. In the afternoon, it was found drying in the sun. Sweeted with palm sugar and coconut milk it makes a delicious dessert!
