Coconut Sticky Rice

A frequent offering on Thai restaurant dessert menus, this exotic creation is a soothing finale to a spicy meal.

Serves 4 to 6

What You Need:

  • 1 cup Thai sticky rice
  • 1 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 fresh ripe mangoes, peeled and sliced

What You Do:

  1. Soak the rice in a bowl of water for at least 2 hours and drain.
  2. Place the rice in a saucepan with the coconut milk, water, sugar, shredded coconut and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
