Sticky Rice with Mango

½ cup Uncooked glutinous rice (malagkit)

Coconut milk

½ cup Sugar

¼ tsp Salt

*Food coloring (optional)

1 Ripe mango, sliced

*Sesame seeds (optional)

  1. Soak the glutinous rice for at least 1 hour up to 5 hours.  Drain and rinse to get rid of the excess starch.
  2. Put the rice in a heatproof bowl and steam in a steamer over medium heat, for about 20 minutes. The rice should be cooked through with no hard, raw bits in the middle of the grains. Turn off the heat and let the rice stay in the steamer, with the lid on.
  3. In a heatproof bowl, heat the coconut milk, sugar, and salt in the microwave on high for two minutes. The sugar should be completely dissolved and the mixture should be very hot.
  4. Take the sticky rice out of the steamer. Pour the hot coconut milk mixture (with food color, if preferred) on top of the rice and stir gently. It may look like your rice is drowning in coconut milk, but the rice will eventually absorb all the liquid. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let the mixture stand at room temperature undisturbed for half an hour.
  5. Serve the coconut sticky rice at room temperature along with slices of fresh mangoes and a topping of sesame seeds.
