  • Put the lychee drink in a pan with the coconut milk, caster sugar and 400ml cold water. Bring to the boil then remove from the heat.

  • Put the rice in a small pan and stir in ⅓ of the hot liquid. Simmer for 4-5 mins, stirring continuously, until the liquid has been absorbed.

  • Divide the rice between 6 bowls and top with the rest of the lychees, the papaya and pistachios. Serve warm.
