Mango Sticky Rice


The birthday of Lord Ganesh/ Vinayagar Chaturthi is an auspicious day for Hindus all over the world. Today is the day  Hindus worship Ganesha with devotions, fasting and offering sweet dishes. Going to the temple for blessings is another tradition though we pray at our altar. Instead of traditional Indian sweets (Kesari, Green Bean Porridge, Semolina Ladoo and Green Peas Payasam), Lord Ganesha was offered this mango sticky rice.  

Sticky rice is glutinous rice, soaked overnight and steamed with a pinch of salt and pandan leaves and served with coconut milk, palm sugar syrup and fresh mangoes. The rice can also be steamed with coconut milk and palm sugar but serving separately means its you who decide on levelling up the sweetness and creaminess.  
Ingredients
1 cup glutinous rice -soaked overnight and drained
2-3 pieces of pandan/screwpine leaves
1 cup thick coconut milk
100g palm sugar
1 tbsp sugar (optional)
Salt as needed
Fresh mango cubes (as needed)
Method
Steam rice with pandan and a pinch of salt till light and fluffy.
Warm up coconut milk.
Make syrup with both types of sugar.
Serve up together with mango cubes.
