Recipe | Steamed White and Red Sticky Rice with Ginger and Axone Chutney

Sticky rice is another favorite of the people in Nagaland. It can be eaten simply as a rice substitute for meals, or as an afternoon snack. Usually eaten with a chutney, it is one of the best afternoon snacks to be relished with a hot cup of tea on a cold rainy day. There are a variety of sticky rice available in the region; the ones we have used here is a mix of white and red sticky rice, and the end result has a beautiful dark red finish.
