Mango Sticky Rice!
|Exciting to purchase any Product of Thailand....even if it's distributed by California (my other favorite place).|
|Ingredients: Sweet Rice, Mango, Coconut Milk, and sugar (not pictured). I would say don't use the lite coconut milk, it does not have the same sugar count you need for this sweet dessert. Geez, treat yourself!|
|Lettin' the Sweet Rice soak in water. It should soak over night ideally, but 2 - 3 hours is good too.|
|I do not yet own a bamboo steamer, but you can use cheesecloth over your regular ol' steamer!|
|The finished product! Yum!|
Soak the sticky rice for 2 - 3 hours minimum, but preferably over night. Then, you must steam the rice either with a bamboo steamer or by placing a cheesecloth over the steam section of your steamer. The rice takes about 15 - 20 minutes to get sticky, it will also be translucent when finished. .
Heat the coconut milk in a pot over medium heat. Stir constantly and let the coconut milk simmer. Hard boiled coconut milk will curdle. Add sugar and salt. Remove from heat. Pour 3/4 of the hot coconut milk over the hot sticky rice. Let it sit for 5 minutes. The hot sticky rice will absorb all the coconut milk. The rice should be a little mushy. Spoon the rest of the coconut milk on top of the rice at serving time.
