Mango with Sticky Rice

Thai mangoes(ma-muang) are probably different from the ones you’ve experienced, if you’re from the west. They are not perfectly round, red, or coarse. In actual fact, they turn from green to that lovely yellow colour and are so delicious when ripe, there is simply no comparison! I find mangoes from South America are usually quite tart, whereas these ones are not. The inside seed is also flat, allowing you to get the most out of this delectable fruit!

Serves two.

You will need:

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup steamed sticky rice or sweet rice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp white suggar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 mango


  1. Add coconut milk, sugar and salt into a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Add the steamed sticky rice and stir for about 1-2 minutes. Turn off the heat and move to a plate or serving bowl.
  3. Slice the mango, put it on the top and serve.
