Project #155 – Mango Sticky Rice

Oh man, I think mango sticky rice is once of my favorite deserts. I love its simplicity and how the flavors blend together. I’ve been waiting for good, ripe summer mangoes to arrive so I would finally have a fruit to do this dish justice. The fruits are the big ones with a little bit of squish to them.

I’m thinking about making this dish another time when we don’t have dinner guests, because even though this recipe serves four I want it all for myself. MINE!


  • 1 medium ripe (slightly squishy) mango, diced
  • 1 cup of glutinous rice OR short grained rice
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 of sugar

Cook the rice according to directions. A few minutes before the rice is done put the coconut milk in a sauce pan and cook it on medium heat, adding the sugar and stirring. Once the sugar is dissolved and the milk is just boiling take it off the burner. Separate the rice into four bowls and pour a ladle of coconut milk over each. Top with the diced mango.

This is definitely a dish even for people shy about making desserts, especially if they have a rice cooker. It doesn’t particularly care if you cook the coconut milk too long or cut up the mango weirdly. You just need to trow everything together in a bowl and there is no need to mix, even. You can even substitute fruits like peaches or pineapple if you can’t find a good mango.

Seriously, make this. You won’t regret it.
