Pua’s Island Rice

Inspired by the high-spirited Rapunzel’s 70-foot locks, this golden-brown loaf with a raspberry cream cheese center will put a smile on even the grouchiest pub thug’s face. If you’ve got little ones at home who are eager to help in the kitchen, have them spread the filling and help roll the loaf before braiding. If there is any filling left, we certainly won’t judge if you let them lick the spoon.



What You’ll Need:

  • 3/4 cup uncooked sweet sticky rice
  • 1/3 cup canned light coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 medium-ripe mango, peeled, sliced and cut into triangles and circles to make 6 pig noses and 12 pig ears
  • 1 tbsp raisin

Pua’s Island Rice


How to Make It:

  1. Steam the rice according to package directions in a rice cooker or in a fine mesh sieve over a pot of boiling water. Set aside.
  2. In a separate pot over medium heat, combine the coconut milk, honey and salt. Stir until combined. Turn off the heat, add the steamed rice to the pot of coconut milk mixture and gently fold to incorporate. Let the coconut syrup absorb into the rice for 15 minutes while cooling. Allow the rice to cool covered in the refrigerator
  3. Once chilled, shape the rice into 6 equal balls using your hands (each ball is about 1/4 cup of rice). Kids can help with this part. (If rice sticks to hands, rinse hands with warm water as needed, or rice balls can be formed tightly in cling wrap then removed). Place the rice balls into small bento boxes or onto plates.
  4. Add the mango ears and noses to make the pig faces. Set the raisins for the eyes and nostrils. Kids can help with this part.
  5. Enjoy immediately or serve chilled for up to 3 days.!
