You can make delicious desert from sticky rice. This kind of dessert is a Filipino delicacy. When they have parties or other special occasions, most FilipinosĀ  usually serve this dessert to their visitors.Ā  There are peopleĀ  who make business by selling this delicacy in the market place or in theĀ  "sari-sari " storeĀ  (a small merchandise) they have in the neighborhood. Many of them love to eat this kind of dessert.


2 cups sticky riceĀ Ā  (You can buy this in Asian stores) Ordinary rice will not do

2 cups brown sugar

2 cups coconut milk


1. Wash theĀ  2 cups of rice and put it in a pan with 2 cups of water. Bring it to boil then reduce the heat. Continue cooking until done. If you have rice cooker, it is easy to cook the rice. Just put the 2 cups of rice in the rice cooker with 2 cups of water, Set it to cookĀ  and leave it until done. The rice cooker will automatically set into "warm" when the rice is already cooked.

2.Ā  While cooking the rice, heat the coconut milk in a saucepan until bubbly. Add the 2 cups of sugar and stir it constantly until it is smooth. Turn your stove into medium heat to avoid sticking. Continue cooking and stirring until the coconut milk and sugar turned like caramel.Ā  This is the indication that it isĀ  ready to mix with the sticky rice.

3.Ā  Turned down the stove into low. With the use of a ladle or big spoon, scoop the sticky rice from the pan orĀ  rice cooker and mix it in the pan with caramel little by little. Stir constantly while you putĀ  the rice into it. While stirring, be sure that they are thoroughly mixed.

4.Ā  Turn your stove to medium and heat the sticky rice with caramel in 5 minutes then take it out from the stove. Let it cool for 10 minutes before serving. You can refrigerate the left over.Ā  Always be sure to reheat the left over caramelized rice before eating because the taste is different when it is warm.

Note: You can also add pecan or peanuts to it if you want.
