Thai Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango( Khao Neow Mamuang)

One of my favorite foods…Kow Neow aka sticky rice and my faithful rice pot can be found most days on the barbi the water simmering away or on the hob.

Which is why the pot looks pretty well used on the outside.

This desert is almost an iconic Thai desert…sticky rice soaked in coconut milk with luscious ripe mango. A match made in foodie heaven.

The rice is soaked in water for at least hour and then just put in the rice and steamed this takes about 15 minutes.

To prepare the milk:

 Heat 1 cup of coconut milk in a pot over medium heat. Stir constantly and let the coconut milk simmer. DO NOT let it boil hard as  coconut milk will curdle.

 Add  2 tbsp of sugar and 2 pinches of salt. Remove from heat. Pour 3/4 of the hot coconut milk over  1 cup of 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.

Enjoy!
