1) In a medium sized pot, add rice, coconut milk, sugar, cardamom spice, and salt. Mix well and place lid. Turn flame high until liquid starts to boil, and then reduce flame to very low and cook the rice for 40 minutes. After 30 minutes, open lid and mix rice so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom and burn. Let it cook for another 10 minutes, turn off flame, mix rice again and let it sit.
2) Slice 4 mangoes. Slice around the pit and cut mango flesh from the skin. Pulse the mangoes in blender until you get a smooth consistency.
3) In a small glass cup, add coconut rice, then add blended mangoes over rice, and add sliced almonds and shaved coconut on top.
