Sticky Rice and Mango is one of favorite desserts. And so easy to make!

Sticky Rice and Mango

1½ cups glutinous (sweet) rice ( available in Asian grocery stores)

1⅓ cups well-stirred canned unsweetened coconut milk

⅓ cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted lightly

1 large mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into thin slices (at least 24)

Step 1

In a bowl wash rice well in several changes of cold water until water is clear. Soak rice in cold water to cover overnight.

Step 2

Drain rice well in a sieve. Set sieve over a large deep saucepan of simmering water (sieve should not touch water) and steam rice, covered with a kitchen towel and a lid, 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender (check water level in pan occasionally, adding more water if necessary).

Step 3

While rice is cooking, in a small saucepan bring 1 cup coconut milk to a boil with ⅓ cup sugar and salt, stirring until sugar is dissolved, and remove from heat. Keep mixture warm.

Step 4

Transfer cooked rice to a bowl and stir in coconut-milk mixture. Let rice stand, covered, 30 minutes, or until coconut-milk mixture is absorbed. Rice may be prepared up to this point 2 hours ahead and kept covered at room temperature.

Alternaterly, you can scoop rice into individual bowls and pout cococun sauce on top.

Step 5

While rice is standing, in cleaned small pan slowly boil remaining ⅓ cup coconut milk with remaining 3 tablespoons sugar, stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Transfer sauce to a small bowl and chill until cool and thickened slightly.

Step 6

To serve, mold ¼ cup servings of sticky rice on dessert plates. Drizzle desserts with sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Divide mango slices among plates.
