Mango Sticky Rice ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง

1 cup Thai sticky rice (AKA sweet rice or glutinous rice. Can be purchased at the Asian market in the Meadowdale shopping center)
1 cup (or more) coconut milk
2 heaping Tbs sugar (palm sugar is most authentic but not necessary)
2 pinches salt
1 ripe mango

Soak the sticky rice in water for at least an hour or so, even overnight if desired. Drain water. Steam sticky rice for 20 minutes in a basket, a colander, or in a steamer lined with cheesecloth (when done, rice should be kind of translucent, and sticky!). While rice is steaming cut the mango into thick slices or bite size chunks. When rice has about 5 minutes left heat the coconut milk in a saucepan. When simmering add the sugar and salt, stirring constantly (do not boil). When rice is done, transfer to a bowl and pour most of the coconut milk mixture over it. Stir for a few minutes till it is absorbed, then add the rest of the mixture. Stir until absorbed. Serve sticky rice warm with mango on top of it.
