Sticky Rice with Mangos and Coconut Milk

A while back I was watching PBS and this man went to Thailand. While he was there he had this dish. The difference in how he was served this yummy treat and the recipe I am posting is that the sticky rice was arranged on the plate, mango slices on top, and then FRESHLY squeezed coconut milk was ladled warm over it all. I had to have it myself.


the only thing is that I didn't seem to get the milk from the freshly grated coconut as easily as they did in the show. I did it just as they did, but my coconut was dry compared. And there is the secret, I believe. I turned to canned...even though I know I am missing something spectacular!


In this recipe they want you to cook it all together...I didn't like that idea. I wanted it as close as the man on t.v. had it, darnit!


Feel free to follow the
recipe or take my variation.
