So you’re in a bunker with a few minutes to kill before pressing a button. Dharma conveniently left you with a bag labeled “rice,” a can labeled “coconut milk,” and a box of “sugar.” All you need are a couple mangos from your tropical island and you suddenly have a pretty easy dessert that you can make in 108 minutes. No pressure. Failing to make this dessert probably won’t result in a catastrophe.
Make that 107 minutes. Get started already.
The Others Mango Sticky Rice
1/3/4 cup water
1 cup uncooked sticky rice
1 can full fat Coconut Milk
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 ripe mangoes
Soak sticky rice in water overnight. Drain.
Boil 1 3/4 cups water. Add rice and stir well.
Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Shake unopened coconut milk like you’re threatening a hapless prisoner.
Combine coconut milk, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan.
Use a medium heat to gently bring it to a boil.
Cover, turn off the heat, and set aside.
After the rice cooks for 15 minutes, add 1 cup of the coconut milk mix.
Continue cooking for 5 minutes. Cover, remove from heat.
Let rice mix cool undisturbed for 108 minutes.
Peel and slice mangoes.
Fill a ramekin with 1/2 cup of sticky rice and top it with 1/2 sliced mango. Drizzle with remaining coconut milk sauce.
Serve with Dharma fish biscuits or whatever you’ve been able to forage on the island.
