Koa Niew Maoung for Dessert, Thai Sticky Rice with Mango from 'Amazing Grains'

Looking for a variation on rice pudding, this Thai recipe from Amazing Grains (Kyle Books, US edition, February 2014) by Ghillie James delivers one.

Thai Sticky Rice with Mango

Serves 4

1/2 cup Thai sticky rice or glutinous rice
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup coconut cream
11/2 tablespoons palm sugar
or dark brown sugar
1 ripe mango, sliced

In Thailand, where I was lucky enough to be taught this simple recipe, they call this dessert Koa Niew Maoung. It is also made in the Philippines, but there it is mixed with malty Milo chocolate powder, called Champorado and eaten for breakfast. You don’t need to serve much as it is very creamy.

Thai sticky rice

Place the rice, unrinsed, into a bowl with ²⁄3 cup cold water and leave to soak for 1–4 hours.

Put the rice and soaking water into a pan with another ²⁄3 cup cold water and the salt, cover with a lid and bring to a boil. As soon as the water is boiling, remove the lid and keep boiling for 6–7 minutes or until the water has nearly all evaporated. Return the lid and steam-cook over low heat for another
6 minutes, then leave to rest while you prepare the coconut.

Heat the coconut cream and sugar gently over low heat until the sugar has melted. Add to the cooked rice and stir together. Serve with plenty of sliced ripe mango.
