~ This is Day 15 ~
For having a not-so-sweet tooth, there are few desserts that I crave for. With this self-quarantine and almost every restaurant is closed, the only way to satisfy that craving is to make it at home yourself. Luckily, this dessert/snack is incredibly easy to make at home.
Here is fresh Mango with Sticky Rice (also called glutinous rice) with a Coconut Sauce, Toasted White Sesame Seeds, and Mint.
- 2 cups glutinous rice, soaked overnight
- 2 cups water
- 2 13.5oz cans coconut milk
- ½ cup palm sugar (more if you like it to be sweeter; substitute brown sugar if you don’t have palm sugar)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Garnish: sesame seeds, mint, Thai basil
Soak rice in cold water overnight. Drain completely. Add 2 cups water and cook rice until tender. 10 minutes set to steam in rice cooker is enough.
In a pot, melt palm sugar and salt in coconut milk. Do not bring mixture to a boil. Pour half of the coconut milk into the rice and mix thoroughly. Reserve the other half for pouring over the rice on the plate with the mangoes. Garnish with toasted white sesame seeds and fresh herbs.
