Xôi Đậu Phộng (Peanut Sticky Rice) Vietnamese Recipe


2 cups Sweet Rice
1 Brown Coconut
1 cup Raw Peanut
Warm Water
Banana Leaves
Kosher Salt

Soak 2 cups Sweet Rice and 1 cup Raw Peanuts overnight.  Next day, cook the Raw Peanuts until tender, remember to add in a pinch of Kosher Salt. 

Rinse and wash the Sweet Rice a few times and set aside to let it air dry. 
Once you have the Sweet Rice and Peanuts ready.
Next step, you need to make some Coconut Milk, about 1 cup. Crack open 1 Brown Coconut and scrape the coconut meat out.  Add in warm water, mix it in and then strain the coconut milk out and set aside. 

Line your steamer with banana leaves, scoop Sweet Rice and Peanuts.  Add a pinch of Kosher Salt and mix well. Steam for about 30 minutes or until it’s looks ready.  Mix 2 Tbsp. Sugar  (add more if you like it sweet) with 1 cup Coconut Milk and a pinch of Kosher Salt.  Sprinkle the Coconut mixture onto the Sticky Rice every 10 minutes. 

When the Sticky Rice is ready, place on plate and serve.
