Cook sticky rice in rice cooker. This is 2.5 cups rice. Water should be at a lesser quantity when cooking sticky rice. I used 2cups of water for 2.5cups rice.
Toast black sesame (for garnishing later). I used fennel seeds as I couldnt find anise. They have the same licorice aroma.
Coconut powder (didnt have fresh coconut milk :), sugar, vanilla
Step 1. Dissolve coconut powder in lukewarm water. I used around 2 - 2.5 cups coconut powder.
Step 2. Toast fennel seeds / anise on pan
Step 3. After toasting the fennel seeds/anise, pour the coconut mixture
Step 4. Add sugar. Adjust amount of sugar to your taste.
Step 5. Add few drops of vanilla.
Step 6. Stir until you reach a bit of sticky consistency.
Step 7. Add the cooked sticky rice.
Here's the finished product, with mango puree, garnished with toasted black sesame and diced mangoes.
