- 1 cup glutinous rice
- 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 ripe mangoes, sliced
- Toasted sesame seeds (optional, for garnish)
- Start by rinsing the glutinous rice thoroughly until the water runs clear. Drain well.
- In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat.
- Add the drained glutinous rice to the coconut milk mixture and stir to combine. Cover the saucepan and let it sit for 30 minutes to allow the rice to absorb the flavors.
- After 30 minutes, return the saucepan to low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice becomes sticky and the coconut milk is mostly absorbed (about 15-20 minutes).
- Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
