Yesterday I had Yam Woon Sen glass noodle salad (https://1countryaweek.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/recipe-yam-woon-sen-thai-style-glassnoodle-salad/) and some Laab Namtok meat salad for dinner. I had some ground meat left from the lunch, so I used made Laab Namtok with a special seasoning mix and fresh peppermint. Loved it 🙂

Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk and Mango

Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk and Mango

In Thailand, sticky rice with sweetened coconut milk and fresh mango is a common dish eaten for lunch or dinner. I love it and because of it`s sweetness I prefer eating it as dessert or for breakfast; it`s also delicious with strawberries or other fruits. If you use mango, use asian mango, it has just another taste then the south american mango.

Ingredients:

– Glutinous (sticky) rice, as much as you want

– 1 asian mango, sliced

– 1 cup coconut milk

– 5 tbsp sugar

1. Pre-soak the rice for at least 2 hours

2. Cook the rice in the rice steamer until it`s done.

3. Warm the coconut milk with the sugar until the sugar is dissolved.

Serve the rice hot or cold, how you like; in my opinion cold sticky rice is more delicious.
