Got this from cuz SS who found it on the UNDP intranet. I already love having this whenever I can find it at Thai restaurants, so this simple recipe is a godsend!
Mango with sticky rice (“Khao Nieow Mamuang”)
1 ripe mango
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup of uncooked sticky rice
2 pinches salt
1 cup coconut milk
Peel and thinly slice the mango by cutting lengthwise. Soak the sticky rice for 10 minutes in warm water in a microwave-safe bowl. The water level should be just above the rice. Cover the bowl and cook in microwave for three minutes. Stir the rice until all the rice is cooked and translucent. Heat the coconut milk in a pot over medium heat. Stir constantly and let the coconut milk simmer. Add sugar and salt before removing from heat. Pour three quarters of the hot coconut milk over the hot sticky rice. Let it sit for five minutes. Place sticky rice on a small plate and top with mango. Drizzle a bit of thick coconut milk on top.
