Coconut Rice with Mango

Start this Thai-style dinner with Spicy Chicken Soup, then move on to an entree of Thai Pork and Vegetable Curry served with Rice Noodles. (The pork recipe calls for orzo; skip it and use the rice noodles instead.) Coconut Rice with Mango is a classic Thai dessert, but rather time-consuming. Try this quick version, ready in minutes.
