I wanted to share with you a recipe for Mango Sticky Rice first. My husband is hooked on this dish after our trip and I have already been asked to make it regularly. After being home for just 4 days, it has already graced our dinner table.
This is a VERY simple dessert and perfect for summer. It does require the right kind of rice (READ: I am not sure what grain is the best). Mine was not terribly sticky but it was delicious just the same.
Mango Sticky Rice
2 ripe mangoes, peeled and sliced
1 1/2 cups of rice
1 1/2 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of coconut milk
3 TBS of sugar
1/8 tsp of salt
In a glass dish with a cover, add the rice and water. Let this sit for 10-15minutes. Then microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes and stir. Repeat this until the rice is translucent. If you have a rice maker of course this is the perfect time to pull out this appliance.
Heat the coconut milk over medium-high heat. Stir until it reaches a low boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar and salt. Pour 3/4 of the coconut milk over the rice and stir well.
Place 1/2 a mango on a plate with a scoop or two of rice. Pour a 2-3 TBS of the remaining coconut milk over the rice. Serve. Enjoy!
