Thai Sticky Rice with Tropical Fruit
A simple, creamy coconut milk pudding that is a traditional Thai dessert. Yes, it is cooked in the microwave, but this gives the rice its perfectly al dente, shiny, and sticky quality that you are aiming for. The palm sugar is interchangeable with other sugars, and choose your favorite tropical fruit to accompany the rice. However, the Thai sticky rice is essential! Another sticky rice will do (I've used black sticky rice), but you can't beat the Thai stuff.
What you will need
1 cup Thai sticky rice
4 tablespoons palm sugar, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 1/2 cups Thai coconut milk (unsweetened, full-fat), such as Chaokoh brand, divided
chopped fruit - as much of your favorite tropical fruit as you would like!
