Mango Coconut Rice Pudding

Mango Coconut Rice Pudding

I still had some mangos left and I was not done experimenting with cardamom. A while ago I tried making a rice pudding for the first time and I really enjoyed it. I was thinking that this time a coconut and mango rice pudding would be nice. The last rice pudding that I made was flavoured with vanilla and cinnamon and I though that cardamom would work well with the mango and coconut. Working with the cardamom was kind of fun. For ground cardamom you have to bash the pod to open it and scrap the seeds out before you can go at them with a mortar and pestle. At first I was going to just mix the pureed mango into the rice pudding but then I thought that it might look nice if you could see the white coconut rice pudding and the mango puree through the glass. I also had a few macadamia nuts left so they went on top. Making rice pudding takes a bit of time but if you have a rice cooker with a porridge setting it is as easy as start it and forget it until it beeps. I really enjoyed the cardamom and coconut rice pudding with mango puree. It was a nice cool treat. I have also been liking the cardamom though it can be a bit strong so I will have to watch how much I use so as not to overpower the dish that it is in.



(Makes 2 servings)

Ingredients:
1 14 ounce can coconut milk
1/4 cup arborio rice
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 pods cardamom (ground)
1/4 cup mango (pureed)
some macadamia nuts (chopped, optional)

Directions:
1. Place the coconut milk, rice, salt, sugar and cardamom in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
2. Reduce the heat and simmer for 25-35 minutes stirring occasionally.
3. Remove from heat and let cool.
4. Mix in the mango and garnish with chopped macadamia nuts.

I don't normally go for rice pudding, but this looks really good.

Do you actually EAT all this stuff? You look so trim. I don't know how you do it!

Kitt said...

Coconut rice and mangoes go together so nicely.

I'm wondering, the first step says "Place the coconut milk, milk," in ... does this recipe include other milk not in the ingredients or is that just a typo?

I'm thinking I will try it this weekend.

magpie said...

I'm loving the mangoes :)

I have to buy some when I get back home.

That looks so ridiculously gorgeous, I love the orange of the mango against the white of the rice. Cardamom is such a gorgeous spice, and yes, quite fun to bash up in the old pestle and mortar.

Gattina said...

Kelvin, how could you do it... again... so good, so creative! Amongst all your mango's creation this one is my most favorite.

You really are becoming the master of mango, and cardamom too. Time for me to replenish my mango supply.

Mango is my all time favorite fruit. This dessert looks amazing!!!

Kevin said...

Kitt: Sorry about that, it was a typo. I just used the coconut milk though you could easily use a combination of milk and coconut milk.

Elle said...

Wow! This looks delicious! I´m very tempted to try this at some point...great photo too!

Grace said...

i don't know if you watch top chef, but there was a mango sticky rice made this past week. it turned out horribly, while your rice pudding looks like perfection itself. good for you, kevin! :)

easycrafts said...

Thats quite an different dish...thanks for participating

Sylvie said...

Beautifully presented!

Mike of Mike's Table said...

That's a very summery looking presentation of the rice pudding. It looks fantastic.

I made rice pudding recently, too, but cooked it in the risotto style (e.g. mix in a little, stir til absorbed, mix in a little, repeat until your arm is about to fall off). I don't think all the extra effort I put into it was worth it though--this looks like a much more reasonable about of work.

Gloria said...

So beauty dessert Kevin!!!! Gloria

nicisme said...

Fabulous photo Kevin - makes me want to eat it right now!

Proud Italian Cook said...

Jaime said...

oh and i agree w/tina, i am amazed at how often you are able to update your blog!

TBC said...

Came here thro' the cardamom round-up.
That is such a visual treat. Love the presentation!

emiglia said...

Gorgeous picture! You definitely were right to layer the mango and rice pudding: the contrast is lovely.

I have a recipe for rice pudding where you melt the sugar and spices in a little bit of butter before adding the rice and toasting it, and then cooking it risotto-style. It takes a little bit more effort, but I love the creamy texture.

Sophie said...

This looks so good!!! yum yum! What an inspiration!!

Ginger said...

Mmm this looked so good I had to try it!

I gave it a whirl and posted my results here--maybe you've got a few tips for me?

Thanks for sharing your creations with us, they're amazing!

Hi!

Looks great but is that supposed to be 1 & 1/4 cups of arborio? 1/4 cup doesn't seem right....?

Kevin said...

Anonymous: This recipe is for 2 small dessert sized portions and thus only uses 1/4 cup of the rice. It can easily be doubled or quadrupled though.

Just made this using a rice cooker. Delicious and SERIOUSLY easy.
