Mango Sticky Rice

We went out with some friends to a Thai restaurant recently and for dessert we had mango sticky rice.  I thought I was in heaven – it was SO good.  I’m pretty sure it was also drowning in sugar because it was very sweet.  I wanted to try making it at home as a simple low-sugar version.  So this is what I came up with:


It was creamy, sweet and delicious   My 2 year old ate it for a snack and for breakfast this morning.  Success.

Mango Sticky Rice

Mango Sticky Rice
Serves: 8 Servings
Prep Time: 10 m
Cook Time: 25 m
  • 3 cups sticky rice, soaked overnight in water and drained
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 2-3 Tbsp sugar (Turbinado, Cane, Brown,)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ripe mangoes
  1. Steam the sticky rice until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, place the coconut milk in a pot and heat over medium heat until hot. Do not boil. Add the sugar and salt and stir to dissolve completely.
  3. When the sticky rice is cooked, turn it out into a large bowl and pour 1 cup of the hot coconut milk over; reserve the rest. Stir to mix the liquid into the rice, then let stand for 20 minutes to an hour to allow the flavors to blend.
  4. Peel and chop the mangoes.
  5. If you want to serve individually, place a round mound of rice on a plate and top with chopped mango.
  6. Stir the remaining sweetened coconut milk thoroughly, transfer to a small serving bowl and pass it separately, with a spoon, so people can spoon on extra.

This sounds really yummy, but is it very filling? Also is this something that keeps well? It sounds like it makes a lot, does it store well?

Sticky rice, or it is also called Glutinous rice, is a special type of Asian rice that is especially sticky when it is cooked. It has a very different texture when it is cooked. You can use brown rice, but it won’t have the same texture.

How do you make sticky rice? Do you have to buy a certain kind of rice? Can it be made with brown rice?
