I haven’t tried this recipe yet. I discovered it on our recent trip to Australia. I can’t wait to try it!

Serves 4

300g jasmine rice
100g granulated sugar
200ml canned coconut milk
400ml water
1 ripe mango peeled and finely chopped
2 tablespoons mint leaves, chopped
1 lime, cut into wedges

Combine rice, sugar, coconut milk and water in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil stirring constantly to prevent the rice from sticking. Simmer very gently, uncovered, on the lowest possible heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. if the rice has absorbed all of the liquid and is not yet cooked, cover the pan tightly and set aside for another 10 minutes until the rice is very tender. Lightly rinse out a 20cm X 15cm shallow tin or pie dish. Tip in the rice (leaving any browned rice on the bottom of the saucepan) and spread out evenly to a depth of 2cm. Smooth the top and leave to cool.

When ready to serve cut into rounds with a cookie cutter. Toss mango with mint and arrange on top of each round. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
