    Amazing . Very tasty  -  27 Apr 2015


    This was really nice (although I wasn't crazy about the sesame seeds) and everybody asked for second helpings - will be making this again!  -  05 Apr 2012


    I made this recipe twice. The first time I made it exactly as the recipe had stated. The second time I made some alterations with much better outcomes. The original recipe will yield a watery conconction, so I cooked the sweet rice in my rice cooker with coconut milk instead of water. Also there's no need to add that much sugar, but adjust to your taste.  -  24 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
