- 2 cups Thai sweet rice
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup palm sugar
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- whole star anise (as garnish)
- crushed peanuts or toasted coconut
Place rice in a large sauce pan and add 2 cups water and leave to soak for 10 minutes (if longer - better). Add 1 ½ more cups water and ½ teaspoon salt and stir well.
Place over high heat. As soon as the water comes to a bubbling boil, reduce heat to medium-low cover and boil for 20 minutes until all the water has been absorbed. Turn off the heat, but keep pot on the oven for 5-10 minutes.
Remove lid and add the coconut milk, stirring until mixed well. Turn heat on low and, while gently simmering, add 1 cup sugar; also add the spices except star anise.
For serving put some of the pudding into bowls. Surround the pudding with a little coconut milk, cream, soy or rice milk. Sprinkle with extra cinnamon or nutmeg, and decorate with cinnamon sticks, whole star anise and crushed peanuts or toasted coconut and Enjoy!
