Mango Sticky Rice

Mango sticky rice is a traditional Thai dessert made with glutinous rice, fresh mango and coconut milk. Now it's Mango season and we managed to get some during our last trip to the grocer.

We are lucky to get some from our regular shop . Finally we had our craving fixed. We are glutinous rice fans. What more had it with coconut milk and sweet mango. It's heavenly dessert on a serious note.

a favourite dessert among Asians

Sticky Rice With Mango

recipe for 4 persons

1 1/2 cups glutinous (sweet) rice
1 1/3 cups well-stirred unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large mangoes, peeled, pitted, and slice

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

Drain 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).
While rice is cooking, in a small saucepan bring 1 cup coconut milk to a boil with salt, stirring until  salt  dissolved and  remove from heat. Keep mixture warm.
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.
While rice is standing, in cleaned small pan slowly boil remaining 1/3 cup coconut milk ,stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Transfer sauce to a small bowl and chill until cool and thickened slightly.
To serve, mold 1/4 cup servings of sticky rice on dessert plates. Drizzle desserts with sauce .Divide mango slices among plates.
