Thai Sticky Rice with Mango

Thai sticky rice with mango hits all the sweet, silky, creamy spots you want in a satisfying dessert. It's a nice, simple way to get your sweet fix.


  • 2 cups of sweet or glutinous rice
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar (add more if you want it sweeter)
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 ripe mangoes, sliced on diagonal
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. Rinse and drain rice, until the water clears. Soak rice for at least 1 hour. It is best to leave overnight if you want it to cook faster. Boil water in a steamer, and pour rice inside of cheesecloth and place in steamer covered. Check after 10 to 15 minutes to see if the grains are tender. If not, cook longer and taste again. It should be chewy but not hard in the middle of the grain. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, combine coconut milk, sugar, and salt in a pot and bring to a slight boil. Pour half of coconut creme sauce into rice, stir well, and let it cool and soak for about 10 minutes.
