Mango Sticky Rice

This is something we have tried several times at our favorite restaurant in Salt Lake--Thai Siam. I found a recipe that's ALMOST as good as theirs.

3 cups sticky rice, prepared (I used Jasmine)

Boil together:
1 can coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar
a pinch of salt

Pour over the sticky rice.

Add 1-2 Tbsp of coconut oil (optional).

Mix and serve with fresh mangoes.

A few notes:
***Our version is quite a bit more runny than Thai Siam's. Next time I make it, I'll try to reduce the coconut milk and see if it thickens it up a little.

***I accidentally added 1 tsp of salt, because I was trying to make two different recipes at once. It didn't taste too salty, but next time, I think I'll try 1/2 tsp salt.
