Sticky Rice with Mango

I spent one month in Thailand last year and my favorite dish was Sticky Rice with Mango, Chiang Mai specialty. Mangoes were on sale last week so I bought several and prepared this dish for our weekend dessert.

1 cup uncooked Jasmine Rice (A Taste of Thai)
1 can A Taste of Thai Coconut Milk (do NOT buy light -- it's too watered down and tastes like soap)
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 mangoes

Cover rice with cold water and rinse until the water runs clear; drain. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 3/4 cups of water to a boil. Add rice, stirring briefly to prevent sticking. Reduce heat to low simmer (I use Low setting on my electric stove), cover, and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the water is absorbed; stir frequently.

In a saucepan, combine coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Heat until almost boiling, stirring frequently. Pour coconut mixture into cooked rice. Stir well to prevent clumping. Cover and let rest for about 30 minutes.

Peel and slice mangoes; arrange on individual dessert plates. Spoon the rice. Enjoy!
