cooked sticky rice
Sticky rice or bora saul is a part of Assamese cuisine. Sticky rice is basically used in making different snacks (pithas) during Bihu festivities. I like to eat sticky rice in breakfast. Sticky rice is served with milk, cream, yogurt and jaggery. But I like to eat sticky rice with vegetables (Sabji).
