Step 1

Till the water runs clear, rinse the sticky rice under cold water. Soak the rice in enough water to cover it for at least 30 minutes, or ideally for a few hours.

Step 2

Drain the soaked rice and place it in a bamboo or metal steamer lined with cheesecloth or a muslin cloth. Steam the rice over simmering water for about 20-25 minutes, or until it's tender and cooked. Check it occasionally and add more water to the steamer if needed.

Step 3

As the rice is heating, make the sweet coconut sauce. In a saucepan, combine the 1 cup of coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Warm the mixture over low heat, stirring until the sugar has completely dissolved. Do not let it boil.

Step 4

Once the sticky rice is cooked and still hot, transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Pour half of the warm sweet coconut sauce over the rice and gently mix it to coat the rice evenly. Let the rice absorb the sauce for about 15-20 minutes.

Step 5

To serve, scoop a portion of the sweet, coconut-infused sticky rice onto a serving plate. Top it with slices of ripe mango. Drizzle some extra coconut milk over the mango and sticky rice. Optionally, garnish with sesame seeds or mung beans for added texture and visual appeal.
