Cambodian / Laotian Bamboo rice steamer?

midcity | May 7, 2009 05:57 PM

A friend recently traveled to Cambodia and Laos and brought back this piece of bamboo cookware for me. She described it as a rice cooker that the local people she worked with would use to cook their lunches. It has a top that is attached with string, and a basket set over a rim. The whole thing is about 6 inches tall. The basket in the top half is about 3 inches deep and about 4 inches across.

I really want to use it, but I don't know how! Any Chowhounds have advice for me?
