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.

My lunch of today

I had Tom Kha Gai with thai style cucumber salad and jasmine rice for lunch. It was just right for a sunny spring day like this one: Refreshing, spicy and not too hot.

By the way: If you wonder about using a fork instead of chopsticks – against the thinking of many people, using chopsticks isn´t common in Thailand! They use to eat with knife, fork and spoon like we do.
