Mango Sticky Rice

Mango sticky rice is one of my favorite desserts to eat here in Thailand! And yes, when I’m feeling cheeky I eat it as dinner! This dish is the perfect combination of sweet coconut milk and refreshing cool mangos, perfect for a hot afternoon! This traditional thai dessert is typically eaten with the hands, just be sure to have some napkins on standby! 


1 cup Long grain rice

150 cc Coconut milk

1 cup Palm Sugar

1pc Ripe sweet mango, peeled and sliced

½ tbsp. Salt

2 tbsp. White sesame seeds (option for garnish)



  1. Soak rice with enough water to cover rice, soak for 3-8 hours. Next, steam rice on medium to high heat for 20 minutes.
  2. Mix the coconut milk, sugar and salt into a pot to heat over medium heat for 5 minutes. Stir to dissolve the sugar thoroughly.
  3. Combine the sauce with hot sticky rice (if rice is not hot, the mixture will separate). Stir to ensure all of the rice mixes with the sauce.
  4. Arrange a plate with rice and sliced mango. Pour any remaining sauce over the sliced mango.
  5. Add sesame seeds (optional).
