The coconut reduction, known as titoté, typically gives this traditional side that irresistible taste. Of course, not everyone has the time to draw out all that flavor by making this tasty paste.

Depending on who you ask, coconut rice can be thought of as either sweet or savory. In Latin America, it’s typically served alongside seafood whereas in Thailand Sticky Rice is considered a sweet treat. Why not get the best of both worlds by mixing sweet and savory ingredients?
