I love thai sticky rice , near the town where i live there is this thai restaurant that we occasionally go to . Me and my friends like to have lunch over there too , their price was very reasonable and they have a very yummy curry . But what i like the most was their dessert , thai sticky rice . I figured it shouldn’t be too hard to make , and so i googled it and i was right , it was super easy . As long as you have the sticky rice , and coconut milk , whether you have mango or not , it’s not a big deal , at least to me 😀
About 1 1/2 cup of sweet sticky rice ( get it from asian market , regular grocery store sometimes don’t carry them and if they do , they tend to cost more )
2 cups of water
1 1/2 cup of coconut milk
1 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp. of salt
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1 tbsp. of sugar
pinch of salt
1. Soak the rice about 20 minutes before you cook it .
2. When you’re ready , cook the rice with 2 cups of water , bring to boil , then simmer about 15 minutes and cover , until all water is absorbed .
3 . While the rice is simmering , cook the coconut milk with 1 cup of sugar and salt , bring to boil until sugar melted , turn the heat off and set aside .
4 . Once the rice is done , add the rice into the coconut milk mixture . Stir well , let it cool for at least an hour . You can taste it like this too and they’re super yummy already .
5. Make the sauce , mix coconut milk , sugar and salt ,warm it up and use it when the rice is ready to be served . Add mango if you prefer .
