Chinese sticky rice

Chinese sticky rice (nor mi fan) is made from glutinous rice mixed with bits of Chinese sausage, dried shrimp, scrambled egg, mushrooms, and scallions. Typically this rice dish is stuffed in a glass bowl which is then turned over onto a plate before serving.  The dish looks like a mound or pie made of rice; it’s even firm enough to slice with a knife and serve like pie. The contrasting flavors and textures of the rice, shrimp, sausages, eggs, and mushroom make this dish one of my favorites.
