Recipe Notes

You can find Thai sticky rice (sometimes called glutinous rice) at Asian grocery stores. Don't use other types of rice, they won't work.

Make sure your mangoes are delicious as they make the dish!

If you don't have a steamer, use this trick:

  1. Fill a pot with 1/2 inch of water.
  2. Put a metal strainer/colander over the pot, and fill with whatever you're steaming.
  3. Bring the water to a boil, and cover the pot with a lid.

If you don't have a metal strainer, you can do this:

  1. Fill a pot with 1/2 inch of water.
  2. Make 3 foil balls, tall enough to rest above water level, and put them inside the pot.
  3. Put a heat-safe plate on top of the foil balls.
  4. Bring the water to a boil, and cover.


  • 1 cup Thai sticky rice
  • 1 (14 oz) can coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch slices


  1. Rinse the sticky rice until the water runs clear. Put rice into a bowl, cover with water, and let the rice soak for at least 1 hour (but up to 24 hours).
  2. Drain the rice with a sieve or cheesecloth. Use a steamer, or steaming device, and steam the rice for 20 minutes, covered.
  3. While the rice is cooking, bring the sugar, coconut milk, and salt to a simmer in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally.
  4. Put the finished sticky rice in a heatproof bowl and add the coconut milk mixture. Stir the mixture together and let stand for 15 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.
  5. To serve, place a mound of the sticky rice on a plate, and arrange the mango slices next to it. Bon appetit!
