F.S. - Thai Sticky Rice w/ Mango and Ice Cream

So delicious, so simple. All you need is a steaming basket, and sticky rice (medium grain, opaque), which you can find at your local Asian market. The rest is at your regular grocery store. You can make your own sweet coconut sauce to go on top, but I find it very convenient to just keep a can of "Lopez" Coconut Cream around - you can find it by the drink mixes.

Thai sticky rice (in whatever amount you wish to make)
Coconut cream
Mango, peeled and cut into slices
Vanilla Ice Cream

Soak the rice over night, or all day (6-8 hrs) then rinse. Place the rice in a steaming basket over a pot of boiling water, and cover the basket with a kitchen towel. Steam the rice for 20 minutes, then flip it over (it will have formed into a mound) and steam on the other side for 10 minutes. The rice will have become elongated and translucent. Transfer rice to serving dishes, drizzle on coconut cream, add mango and ice cream, and serve immediately. The rice will be warm and chewy.

You can also serve the plain sticky rice with Thai curries or stir-frys, and you can put the rice in a plastic bag sealed tight with all the air out of it to keep it for a couple of days in the refrigerator.
