For a healthier, more exotic alternative, use sticky black rice (available in specialty stores).
Prep Time 8 minutes Cooking time 40 minutes
2 cups uncooked glutinous rice, soaked in water overnight, then drained
2 teaspoons black sesame seeds, pan roasted in low gas flame
3 ripe mangoes, peeled, flesh sliced into pieces
For the Sweet Coconut Sauce
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups thick coconut milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 Line a steamer basket with cheesecloth and spread the soaked glutinous rice evenly. Steam the rice for 15 minutes, turn it over, and steam for another 10 minutes until cooked.
2 While the rice is steaming, make the sweet coconut sauce by heating all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until all the sugar is dissolved. Remove and set aside.
3 While the rice is still hot, pour 3/4 of the coconut sauce over the rice, cover with clear plastic wrap and set aside for about 10 minutes until all the sauce is absorbed.
4 To serve, place small portions of the sticky rice on individual serving plates and drizzle remaining sauce on top. Serve with sesame seeds sprinkled on top and mango slices on the side.
