Ingredients

  • 2 mangoes peeled and cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups Thai Jasmine rice
  • 16 ounce unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Wedge of lime optional

Instructions

  • Soak the rice in the water overnight or for at least 6 hours. Do not drain the water or rinse the rice. See note
  • In a medium sauce pan, stir the coconut milk into the water and rice until combined. Bring to a boil then add the mango. Bring to a boil once more and then cover and reduce the heat to a low simmer for 15 minutes. If there is still liquid in the rice, cover and cook for another 5, or until the liquid is completely absorbed.
  • Remove from heat and let sit covered for ten minutes.
  • Serve hot or cold. It’s great both ways. Squeeze fresh lime juice on top for a little tanginess.
