1/2 cup sugar (add more if you want it sweeter)
2 pinches of salt
1 tbsp cornstarch
Sesame seeds for garnish
Let's get Cooking...
Rinse and drain rice, until the water clears. Soak rice for at least 1 hour. It is best to leave overnight if you want it to cook faster. Boil water in a steamer, and pour rice inside of cheesecloth and place in steamer covered. Check after minutes to see if the grains are tender. If not, cook longer and taste again. It should be chewy but not hard in the middle of the grain.
Meanwhile, combine coconut milk, sugar, and salt in a pot and bring to a slight boil.Remove cooked rice and place in a bowl. Pour half of coconut creme sauce into rice, stir well, and let it cool and soak for about 10 min.
In a small bowl, make a cornstarch slurry by combining the cornstarch and 1 tbsp cold water. Stir into the rest of the sauce, and heat on low until thickened.
Peel mango, slice around pit, and slice on a diagonal. Serve mango slices along rice, sprinkle sesame seeds, and ladle additional sauce on rice and mangoes.
