Mango sticky rice

Mango sticky rice is a popular Thai dessert made with glutinous rice, fresh mangoes, and sweet coconut milk sauce. The glutinous rice is cooked in a mixture of coconut milk, sugar, and salt until it becomes sticky and slightly sweet. The fresh mangoes are then sliced and served on top of the rice, adding a refreshing and fruity flavor to the dish. It is a delicious and satisfying dessert that is enjoyed both in Thailand and around the world.


1 1/2 cups glutinous rice
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 ripe mangoes, peeled and sliced
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)


Rinse the glutinous rice with cold water until the water runs clear. Then, soak the rice in cold water for at least 30 minutes.

In a saucepan, combine the water, coconut milk, sugar, and salt. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.

Drain the soaked rice and add it to the coconut milk mixture. Reduce the heat to low and stir until the rice is fully coated in the mixture.

Cover the saucepan with a lid and simmer for 18-20 minutes or until the rice is cooked through and the liquid is absorbed.

Remove from heat and let the rice sit covered for 10 minutes to steam.

Fluff the rice with a fork and divide it into bowls.

Top the rice with sliced mangoes and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if desired.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy your delicious mango sticky rice!
