Mango Coconut Rice
Originally, this was supposed to be an elaborate recipe where I cut mango thin and used a sushi mat to roll up the rice inside the mango. Obviously that didn't work, but this turned out to be a nice dish anyway. I don't think I've ever used coconut milk before, the consistency was a little different than I thought, and it was also much sweeter than I thought, and didn't taste like shaved coconut like I thought it would.
This recipe was originally on She Simmers.
-1 mango-1/2 cup rice
-1/2 cup coconut milk
-1/2 cup sugar
|Add half a cup of rice with a cup of water, and heat covered|
for 15 minutes.
|Mix the sugar and coconut milk, and microwave|
for 2 minutes.
|Turn the heat off the rice. Stir the coconut mixture into the rice.|
Let this sit covered for 30 minutes.
|Peel the mango. I used a potato peeler, that worked|
pretty well for me, and I thought I didn't lose as much
mango as I would have if I used a knife.
|Slice the mangoes into chunks or slices.|
|This was my attempt to make it into a sushi like roll.|
|It rolled up ok, but when I tried to cut it up it fell apart.|
This was my first try using my sushi rolling mat, sometime soon I'll be making a vegetarian sushi roll.
