Steamed peanut sticky rice (Xoi dau phong/Xoi lac)
This steamed peanut sticky rice is so flavorful and satisfying. It is one of the best vegan breakfast foods. All components complement each other so well: soft sticky rice, buttery boiled peanuts, creamy coconut milk and nutty and aromatic toasted sesame seeds.
Servings: 4 people
- 1 cup sticky rice
- 6 tablespoons peanuts
- 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons coconut milk (canned coconut milk)
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
Soak sticky rice and peanuts in cold water individually for at least 2-4 hours or overnight.
After soaking them overnight, wash and drain before cooking.
Place peanuts in a small pot, add water to cover and bring to a boil. After it has reached a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until peanuts are almost tender, about 15-20 minutes depending on your peanuts.
Drain peanuts and mix sticky rice, peanuts, shredded coconut and salt together.
Transfer everything to a bamboo steamer or a steamer basket. Steam for 15-20 minutes until rice is cooked and peanuts are soft.
Add coconut milk and mix well. Steam for another 5 minutes to let all flavors come together.
Transfer steamed sticky rice to serving bowls and sprinkle toasted sesame seeds.
- You can add less than 6 tablespoons of coconut milk, depending on your liking.
- Leftover steamed peanut sticky rice can be refrigerated and reheated in the microwave next day, or warm it up in your rice cooker.
