    teaspoon kaffir lime leaf spices

  • Rinse the rice in a mesh strainer under cold water. You can also rinse in the pot, carefully pouring out the water, using the lid to keep rice from falling out.
  • Place the rice in a medium pot with coconut milk, water, sugar, and salt. Heat the pot on Med-High heat. As soon as you see the first bubbles of a boil, lower the heat to Low and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  • While the rice is cooking, peel the mango and slice into 1/2 inch wedges or cubes. Set aside.
  • After 20 mins, pull the rice off the stove and let stand covered for ~10 minutes Sprinkle with Piquant Post Kaffir Lime Powder then fluff rice with a fork. Scoop rice to a plate and top with mangoes and a sprig of mint.
