  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat; gently cook and stir rice in the hot oil until toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add coconut milk, water, sugar, and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover saucepan, and simmer until rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir coconut cream into rice.
  2. Scoop rice into a serving bowl and top with mango.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Be sure to keep a close eye on the rice because it is easy to overcook. I've tried making this in a rice cooker before and I did not have any luck, so I always make this on my stovetop.
