Sticky Rice”
 1.  Rinse mangoes and chill them whole. Peel and slice mangoes just before
serving to keep the fresh sweet taste.
 2.  In a saucepan combine sticky rice and coconut milk and cook on medium heat
for 5 minutes or until thick.
 3.  Stir in sugar and salt. The amount of sugar depends on the sweetness of the
mangoes. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 2 minutes.
 4.  Serve warm on a platter with chilled mango slices arranged around the edge.
 Author’s Notes:
 	Sticky rice is a very special kind of rice, sometimes called sweet rice
    or glutinous rice. Go to the Asian market and ask specifically for sticky
    rice. When they try to talk you out of buying it, stand firm and INSIST that
    “yes,” you know how to cook it and “yes,” this is really what you want. The
    following recipes are from Keo’s Thai Cuisine by Keo Sananikone: Berkeley,
    CA: Ten Speed Press, ISBN # 0-89815-183-X
 	Mold the rice-coconut-milk mixture in a bowl, then invert and place on a
    large round serving platter. Remove bowl. Arrange sliced mangoes all around.
    If possible, garnish with some fresh flowers. -- CMT).
