Thai Mango Sticky Rice Dessert

Thank goodness mangoes are still available this week. I just got this craving for Thai Mango and sticky rice dessert since last week, and decided to make it this weekend. I have had this when I was in Bangkok last year and it was unforgettable. These stalls are everywhere in the streets of Bangkok. Be sure to try them if you haven't tried. It is very yummy.



Things you will need :

2 cups of glutinous rice ( from your Asian grocer or supermarket if they have them) '
1 can of coconut milk or cream
Water to soak rice in and to cook
2 ripe mangoes or more if you like lots of mangoes.
1/4 teaspoon of salt
5 small cubes of palm sugar or brown sugar if you don't have them


Method:

  1. Soak glutinous rice in one cup of water overnight
  2. Do not drain liquid
  3. Add soaked rice and liquid to pot, add in salt, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar or palm sugar
  4. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer.
  5. Once coconut has been absorb into rice, turn off heat but let sit.
  6. Now, you will need to make the coconut sauce.
  7. Put the remainder coconut cream/ milk into a milk pan. Add in the rest of palm sugar, taste test the sweetness. Add more or less as you wish
  8. Do not let it boil. Turn off heat
  9. Remove skin and cut up mangoes. 
  10. Served warmed rice with freshly cut mangoes and pour coconut sauce over it!
  11. Yum Yum in my tummy time :) If you are like me, you'd loved the coconut sauce and want to drown the sticky rice in it.. see my last photo :) LOL
