Prep time (rice): 10 minutes plus 2 hours to soak the sticky rice
Soak the sticky rice in room temperature water for at least 2 hours prior to cooking (best to do overnight).
Prepare the steamer by adding water into the bottom of the Copper Base saucepan and bringing it to the boil. Cover the steamer with a muslin or cheese cloth.
Wash the sticky rice a couple of times. Pour the sticky rice onto the muslin cloth, cover the lid, and cook it on the hob over medium to high heat. Turn it from time to time.
It should take about 18-20 minutes to cook and the grains will become translucent when done.
In the meantime, put the coconut milk, sugar and salt in a small saucepan.
Heat until the sugar has dissolved and set aside. Do not bring it to boil.
Once the sticky rice is cooked and still hot, transfer it onto a metal tray/bowl. Gently pour the sweet coconut milk onto the rice and fold it in until the sticky rice is well absorbed in all the coconut milk.
Shape the sticky rice in a small bowl/cup, scatter some honey mango cubes, and place a coral tuile sheet on top (see below). Garnish with edible gold spray and flowers.
Serve with additional sweet coconut milk sauce if required.
Tips and Techniques
Make sure the sticky rice and coconut milk are hot while you mix the two components together.
Add some pandanus leaves while heating the coconut milk for a naturally sweet aroma.
Cooking Method (for the coral tuile)
Mix the flour, water, oil, and food colouring in a small bowl and mix well
