- Place a pot over medium heat and bring to a boil.
- Add the rice, coconut milk, milk, sugar and aromatics in a spice bag, so they can be easily removed. (If you don't have a spice bag, wrap them in a piece of thin cloth and tie with kitchen twine.)
- Add the water in batches.
- As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring continuoulsy so that the milk doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.
- While the rice pudding is cooking prepare a mango. To remove the pit, cut the flesh away from the pit. Cut 2-3 slice and peel them. Cut the remaining mango in to cubes by cutting in to the flesh in a crisscross manner and then remove the flesh from the skin.
- As soon as the rice pudding starts to thicken, remove from heat and divide equally in to serving bowls.
- Top with some crushed pistachio nuts, some mango cubes, mango slices, and drizzle with honey.
- You can serve it warm or cold. If you like it cold, refrigerate to chill.
