Thai coconut rice pudding with mango couli

The Hubby and I love Thai Coconut Rice Pudding, but it has to be a certain consistency. I’ve made it a few times and it was always too thick and gummy. I saw the image of this Thai Coconut Rice Pudding on Ricardo Cuisine and when I read one of the reviews that it turned out to be “like a rice soup,” I knew I had to try making it. As another sign it was meant to be, mangoes were on sale.

The mango couli tips it over the top. Usually, I was just putting slices of mango in the pudding, but adding the couli really enhanced that mango flavor and is the perfect pairing with the coconut rice pudding.
