Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango
What's your Take?

Mango sticky rice is a fun twist on the arroz con leche recipe I'm acustomed to preparing.  Coconut milk, brown sugar and sweet mango slices give it a tropical twist to this family favorite.  Serve it as a sweet dessert ending to a light family lunch.

What you'll need

  • 1 cup uncooked short-grain rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 large ripe mangoes, sliced in strips
  • mint springs for garnish

How to make it

  1. In a large bowl, soak rice for 1 hour.  Drain and rinse thoroughly until water rinses clear.

  2. In a large saucepan, add 1 cup water and heat over medium heat.  Add rice and cook for 20 minutes until tender and water is fully absorbed.  Remove from heat. 

  3. In a separate saucepan, heat coconut milk and let simmer.  Add salt and sugar and stir constantly.  Remove from heat and add 3/4 of the coconut mixture to cooked rice.  

  4. To serve, place rice in individual bowls and spoon the rest of coconut milk mixture over rice.  Garnish with mango slices and mint sprigs.
