This is not a traditional Thai Khao Neeo Mamuang; it's my own fast and loose interpretation with seasonal peaches instead of not-local mangoes. I love the nuttiness of the forbidden rice...and I love that name! Plus, it is delicious!
- 2 C Forbidden rice
- 2 C coconut cream
- 2 C water
- 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
- 1 t pure vanilla extract
- 4 T coconut flakes, toasted
- ripe peaches, sliced for serving
Place all of the ingredients - except for the coconut flakes and the peaches - in a large saucepan that has a lid. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and let steam until the rice is tender. If the rice is not cooked, but all the liquid has evaporated, add in more water. Once the rice is cooked, fold in the coconut flakes. Spoon it out on individual plates and top with sliced peaches.
