Mango Sticky Rice

10 ounces uncooked sweet rice

(available in international food market)

10 ounces water

2 cups sugar, divided

13.5-ounce can unsweetened coconut

milk

1 mango, sliced

1/4 cup peanuts, chopped

(substitute with nut of preference

or sesame seeds)

Steam rice and water until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes. Slowly stir in 1 cup sugar into the rice.

To make the coconut syrup, in a pan on the stove heat milk and 1 cup sugar on low for 10 minutes, stirring constantly or until it thickens. Let syrup cool to room temperature (unless you desire a warm dessert).

Divide the rice into four portions and place on a plate. Pour syrup over the rice. Top each mound with chopped nuts. Mango may be placed on the plate in a pattern or design to make the dish more attractive.

Cook’s note — do not top with nuts before adding syrup or it affects the crunchiness.
