Sticky Coconut Rice
Recipe type: Side Dish, Rice
Serves: 6
  • 1½ cup jasmine rice (or whatever rice you like, I use brown)
  • 1 15-oz can regular or light coconut milk
  • 1 cup milk or water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (original recipe called for ½ cup, but we've reduced that amount over and over again over the years...2 tablespoons is perfect for our family now)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Put rice in a medium sauce pan and combine with coconut milk, milk (or water), sugar and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring regularly, then reduce heat to low and cover pot. Simmer for about 25 minutes (could take up to 45 minutes depending on the type of rice you use). Stir regularly but cover pot between each stir.
  2. Rice and pork may be served with fresh, cubed mango, but this is optional (although I am certain it is delicious!).
