People want to make it sound hard and I don't have time for that. I need EZ-Smeazy or forget it. I'm not going to be doing it. I have other things I want to do than spend all day in the kitchen but I still want food that tastes yummy.
So, when I looked up how to make Mango Sticky Rice I was exhausted after just reading the recipe.
That's no recipe for me. It even had a difficult name "Khao Niaow Ma Muang".
Okay, maybe it is a classic Thai dessert but I just wanted to make it for my family not learn an entirely new language.
The recipe I found gave all sorts of strange (difficult) cooking instructions. Such as:
1) Insisting on making sure I got the "right" rice for this dessert - they said "regular (savory) rice
will not work; you need sweet rice"
(I JUST BOUGHT LONG GRAIN ENRICHED WHITE RICE--THE NORMAL STUFF I ALWAYS BUY)
Then the recipe I read said:
2) Soak the rice in 1 cup water for 20-30 minutes, OR up to 4 hours
(20 MINUTES TO 4 HOURS--THAT'S A DRASTIC TIME DIFFERENCE--EVEN FOR ME)
The more I read the more I thought, "Hey I don't think I can make this stuff" but then I figured, rice is cheap - what's the worst thing that could happen? So, I decided to experiment myself.
I took three cups of rice and cooked it in four cups of water (in my regular rice cooker--the way I always do)
Then I poured one can of sweetened condensed milk over the rice when it was finished cooking and about one can of coconut milk. Then I cut up a couple mangos and put it over MY MANGO STICKY RICE...It was super YUMMY! And EZ-Smeazy!
KIM'S KILLER RICE RECIPE:
My ingredient list:

3) 1/2 can of coconut milk
4) 2 mangos (sliced up) to be put over the sticky mango rice.
1) After cooking 3 cups of rice, stir in 1 can sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 can of coconut milk.
2) Top with slices of fresh mango.
WAH-LAH!!! You will be enjoying Mango Sticky Rice in less than a half hour.
It may not be the same exact melt in your mouth - out of this world - Mango Sticky Rice that you get in your favorite Thai restaurant but, believe me, it's close...real close.
In fact, I served this at my Renewing of My Wedding Vows Celebration and I had people calling me and texting me for my recipe. No kidding.
