Ingredients

For the rice

  • 1 ripe mango, sliced
  • 1 Cup sweet rice/glutinous rice (You can order online, if you can’t find it you can use Japanese sushi rice)
  • 1 Tablespoon Moong Dal or roasted peanuts (Moong Dal: Salty Indian fried mung beans, you can get them at any Indian corner store)

For the coconut cream

  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch

Directions

For the rice

Rinse the rice 3 times until the water runs clear. Put 2 cups of water over the rice and let sit at room temp for 3 hours. Rinse out the water and place the rice in a sieve and spread out evenly. Place the sieve on top of boiling water and cover. Steam the rice. This may take around 30 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork every 10 minutes.

For the coconut cream

Empty out the can into a pot with the sugar. Bring to a boil and let simmer for a couple of minutes. Take 2 tablespoons of the hot coconut milk and mix it in with the cornstarch. Pour the mixture back into the coconut milk and let thicken. Simmer for another couple of minutes. The mixture should be thick and sweet. Plate the rice with the mango and drizzle the coconut cream all over. Sprinkle with the mung beans/peanuts and serve.

Mango Sticky Rice Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Mango Sticky Rice Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
