Thai Coconut Sticky Rice With Mangoes

Saw this recipe at Kitchen Snippets & My Kitchen made me drool!
Mangoes are still easily to be found, so I decided to give it a try

I never cook glutinuous rice before in any way, and I heard it's quite tricky, so after comparing between the two recipes, I decided to try the latter one, since it's easier to judge whether I do the right thing while cooking the rice, also I prefer to do the original first before I made some twist for the rice to pandan flavour
I added the topping to drizzle over the rice from the first recipe, though

Result? It's a success - nice, nice, nice!!! :)
There's no worse scenario than eating the sweet mangoes with hard glutinuous rice, so I was really pleased to know that it didn't happen - texture was perfect! :)


What you need:

2 cups glutinous rice (soaked overnight)
1 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 large ripe mangoes
Optional:
extra coconut milk
1/4 tsp cornstarch + 1 tbsp water

Steam glutinous rice for 30 minutes or until it is cooked
In a saucepan combine cooked glutinous rice, sugar, salt and coconut milk and cook on medium heat until thick. Reduce heat and cover for 10 minutes
Peel and slice the mango just before serving to maintain its freshness and sweet taste
Mould the rice in the center of a serving dish and arrange the slices of mango on top of it
Meantime, heat up extra coconut milk and cornstarch mixture over low heat til thick - use this to drizzle on top the rice just before consuming (optional)

Yummy rich dessert which really can make you feel so suffed! :)
