Equipment Needed


  1. Put a saucepan over medium heat with cooked rice, milk, sugar, vanilla and coconut extract in it and bring to a boil.
  2. Lower the heat, cover the saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes or until all the liquid has soaked into the rice and it turns into pudding consistency. Keep stirring occasionally.
  3. Gently fold in chopped mangoes and cook further for 4 to 5 minutes; then turn off the heat.
  4. While the pudding cooks, toast the coconut flakes in a pan or skillet over medium-high heat until they start turning brown. Keep tossing occasionally to prevent burning.
  5. Add toasted coconut flakes into pudding, stir and serve warm or refrigerate to chill as per choice.
