Mango Sticky Rice

Good dessert...bad picture!

1 c. sweet Thai rice (I used Thai Jasmine)
1-2 mangos, sliced
4-5 Tbsp coconut crystals, sucanat or brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 can of good quality, full fat coconut milk

Soak 1 cup of rice in enough water to just cover the rice for at least 20 minutes or up to 4 hours.

Do not drain the water.  Add 3/4 cup more plus 1/4 of the can of coconut milk, salt and 1 Tbsp sugar.  Stir to combine.

Bring rice mixture to a slow boil, the cover partially with the lid.  You need some steam to escape.  reduce it to a simmer.  Simmer for 20 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed.

Turn off the heat and fully cover the pot with the lid and leave on the stove.  Let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

Warm, NOT boil, the rest of the coconut milk for 5 minutes, then add in the rest of the sugar (you may want to add even a bit more sugar to make it a tad sweeter)...stir until its dissolved.

Scoop some rice into a bowl and top with sliced mangos.  Pour some coconut sauce over the top and serve.

OR... you can mix the remaining coconut milk with the prepared rice, then scoop and serve.
