ingredients
  • 1 cup sticky rice (also called glutinous rice)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbs brown sugar or palm sugar
  • a big pinch of salt
  • 1 or 2 mangoes
instructions
Steaming Method
  1. Soak the rice in warm water for at least 10 minutes and drain.
  2. Line a steamer with a piece of baking paper that is cut to be smaller than the steamer and punch a few holes in it.
  3. Add the rice onto the paper.
  4. Steam the rice for 20 minutes or until done.
Microwave Method - I prefer this as it is easier, but be careful with the timing
  1. Soak the rice in warm water for at least 10 minutes with the water covering the rice by about ½ cm.
  2. Put a plate on top of the bowl to cover it and microwave on high for 3 minutes, stir and microwave for another 3 minutes. If it needs any further cooking, do this in bursts of 1 minute. It is easy to overcook and you want the grains still identifiable, not a bowl of mush.
Putting it together
  1. Once the rice is done by whichever method you choose, put the cooked rice into a bowl.
  2. Mix the coconut milk, sugar and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer.
  3. Remove from the heat and pour ⅔ of it over the rice and gently fold in. Don't worry too much about mixing it, the warm rice will absorb the coconut milk.
  4. Place a portion of the rice into a serving bowl, top with sliced ripe mango and pour over some of the reserved coconut milk mix.
