Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Thai black sticky rice*

1 cup boiling water

1 mango, peeled and diced

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup water

1 cup sugar

1 (13.5-ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

6 sprigs fresh mint, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the rice and enough water to cover by 2-inches. Soak for at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours. Drain.
  2. Place a bamboo steamer inside a wok or large pot. Line the steamer with parchment paper. Add enough water to the wok or pot to come up just below the bottom steamer rack, 1 to 1 1/2 inches. Bring the water to a boil. Add the rice to the bottom steamer rack, pour 1 cup of boiling water over the rice, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and steam until rice is tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer the rice to a bowl. (At this point the coconut sauce should be made and ready to pour over the steamed rice.)
  3. While the rice is steaming, prepare the mango syrup and the coconut sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the diced mango, lemon juice, water, and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes or until the fruit is very tender. Pour the mixture into a food processor and puree until smooth. Remove and chill the mango mixture for 30 minutes.
  4. To make the coconut sauce, combine the coconut milk, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Pour over the steamed rice, mix well, cover and set aside until most of the liquid is absorbed, 30 to 45 minutes.
  5. To serve, spoon 1/2 cup of the rice pudding into each of 6 shallow bowls. Arrange strawberry slices on top of the pudding and drizzle the mango syrup over the top of the pudding. Garnish each with mint sprigs and serve at room temperature. (This dessert is best before it has been refrigerated.)
