Glutinous rice is a type of Asian rice that is especially sticky when cooked. It is called glutinous in the sense of being glue-like or sticky and not in the sense of containing gluten. While called sticky, it is not to be confused with the other varieties of Asian rice, which become sticky to one degree or another when cooked.
