Mango Sticky Rice is always a treat!  It is especially a treat when you have it in the middle of fall, just before the onset of winter.  It reminds me of a perfect balmy, summer day, which is sometimes just what I need when it’s 35 degrees outside (even though that’s not THAT cold..I’ve seen worse).  🙂  If you can find mangoes in your area, try this recipe!  It’s simple and delicious!

1 mango, peeled and sliced
1 c. of glutinous sticky rice (Thailand)
1 1/4 c. water
1/4 c. coconut milk
1 t. sugar
maraschino cherries (optional)

1.  Using a rice cooker, combine sticky rice and water and set to cook (or cook on stovetop)
2.  While rice is cooking, combine coconut milk and sugar.
3.  When rice is done, arrange on plate or in a bowl (mango can go beside rice or on top of).
4.  Just before eating, Pour coconut milk mixture over rice and eat with mango.

You’ve just created a delicious, exotic dessert in just 5-10 minutes!  Congratulations!  🙂
