Mango Sticky Rice with Coconut-Lime Sauce
Mango sticky rice is a sweet, creamy, and tangy dessert that's popular street fare in Thailand. Luckily, you won’t have to cross the Pacific to enjoy this Thai treat—we’ve devised an easy way to make sticky rice with mango at home. Find sticky rice, also called Thai sweet rice or glutinous rice, at Asian markets. The traditional method calls for soaking the rice overnight, then steaming it in a bamboo steamer basket. Our clever method steams the rice in a shallow perforated metal colander placed inside a pot of boiling water (you can also use a mesh colander, but it’s more difficult to clean). While the sticky rice steams, cut the mango and whip up the indulgent coconut-lime sauce. Cooked sticky rice doesn’t keep well, so for the best flavor and texture, enjoy this dish as soon as possible.
