I thought I had coconut milk in the cupboard, but when I reached for it I noticed that it was Cream of Coconut, which is usually used for pina coladas and other smooth drinks. The cream is really sweet and thick on its own. I had already made the rice, so I poured half the can onto the cooked rice (enough to make it moist, but not drown the rice). I didn't add anything else--just cooked rice and cream. I'm a little worried now that this is all they do at my favorite Thai place, because it was almost as good as theirs. Sorry this review doesn't relate directly to the recipe, but I thought it might be helpful to know that in a pinch you can get this dish with only two ingredients (technically three, since I used a little salt to cook the rice/or four if you slice a mango too).
