Coconut Sticky Rice
  • 1 cup sticky rice or sushi rice, soaked in 1 cup water for at least 4 hours or overnight
  • 1 can of full fat coconut milk
  • Sugar to taste
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • Fresh cut fruits or ice cream (optional)
  • Black sesame seeds, optional
  1. After soaking the rice, put it in a steamer and steam it by placing it inside a pot with 1.5 cups of water. Steam it for 20-25 minutes until translucent. While the rice is cooking, take a pot and add coconut milk and add salt and sugar. Keep stirring it and keep the flame low. In a small bowl, add few tsps water to cornstarch and stir it. Add it to coconut milk and whisk it all nicely. Keep stirring till it becomes somewhat thick.
  2. After the rice is cooked, transfer it to a bowl. To rice, add ½ of cooked coconut milk and mix it slowly until rice absorbs all the milk. Add more slowly and keep mixing. If it starts looking loose, stop pouring coconut milk and let the rice sit. Serve the rice at room temperature dolloped with few tsps of remaining coconut milk and black sesame seeds.
