I used the recipe from Cooking From Above, though it's a pretty simple dish and can be found all over the internet (here's a version similar to the one I used).
|The book simplifies a lot of Asian dishes, but I love the overhead pictures of each step! So useful for noobs like me.|
|Rice after soaking.|
"Cheesecloth is gauze!" Yes. Figured that out.
Once the rice is soaked, I steamed it in the cheesecloth for about a half hour or so.
|Fluffy and sticky!|
|Well, I mixed it in first, of course.|
Yeah, I don't have any clue how to cut mango. You think islander-husband would have taught his wifu, but I don't think he knows either.
Anyway, the best part, to me, is the mango! So make sure you get a nice juicy sweet one (mine wasn't quite ripe enough). Bananas also work really well with this dish if you're not a mango fan.
Though not a meal light on fat and calories, it's certainly delicious!
