Mango sticky rice is probably the most popular dessert in Thailand. No wonder, as it's just so delicious. With this simple recipe you can make tasty Thai street food at home.
Rinse rice thoroughly until water runs almost clear and soak in cold water for at least 1 hour (the longer the soaking time, the shorter the cooking time).
Drain rice and rinse once more.
Pour rice into a clean kitchen towel and place it into a steamer basket / colander. Boil about 2 inches of water in a large pot and set the steamer over it; make sure the rice doesn't dip down into the water. Cover and steam for 20 minutes.
In the meantime heat coconut milk in a small pot (don't boil it!). Add sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add half of the coconut sauce to the rice, mix well and leave to stand for about 10 minutes.
Add starch to the coconut sauce left in the pot and heat on low until thickened.
Cut mango diagonally (traditionally) or into cubes and add to the rice. Garnish with thickened sauce and sesame seeds.
