Method & Preparation
Wash the rice in cold running water three times, draining the starchy water each time.
Cook the rice with the water according to the packet instructions or use the methods listed on page 143. When it’s done, let the rice sit for 10–20 minutes, then gently fluff with a spoon.
Add the sugar, salt and coconut milk to a saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium to high heat. Cook until the sugar and salt have completely dissolved, then remove from heat. Place the cooked sticky rice in a bowl, add the thick coconut milk mixture and mix gently together. Leave to cool.
When ready to serve, divide the sticky coconut rice between two bowls and top with the sliced mango.
