Mango Sticky Rice is a delicious, lightly sweet Thai dessert. Using a few basic tools and ingredients, you can easily make this delicacy at home!
You will need:
-Glutinous sticky rice (around 1/2 cup per serving)
-Coconut milk (around same amount of rice used, go by taste)
-Fresh, ripe mangoes
-Palm sugar (by taste)
-A sticky rice steamer pot and basket
First, put the rice in a bowl covered with water and let soak for 6-8 hours or overnight. Once the rice is soaked, drain the water and prepare your steamer pot by bringing fresh water to a boil. Place the basket into the pot, and add the soaked rice. Cover with a lid and let steam for 20-30 minutes, until tender. Once tender, immediately transfer to a bowl and mix in coconut milk and palm sugar until dissolved and well incorporated, tasting along the way until the desired sweetness is attained. Slice up your fresh mangoes, and serve!
