Sticky Mango Rice

This mango sticky rice is a creamy sweet and fresh delicious Thai dessert combining warm coconut sticky rice and a fresh slice of mango. This recipe is vegan.

If you ever heard about kheer or rice pudding then you'll know that rice can be a dessert ingredient. However Thai sticky rice takes a desert to a whole new level. Combine with sweet coconut milk sauce and fresh mango.

I want to clarify here something that traditionally in Thai sticky mango rice they use glutinous rice but I used here normal basmati rice and I found this recipe is still tasty and super yummy with basmati rice also.

So next time if you want to try this recipe without a glutinous recipe please go ahead and use basmati rice.

They used glutinous rice coz glutinous rice has a delicious sticky and almost sushi rice style texture. which soak up the coconut milk sauce to become deliciously gooey.

But I found basmati rice also make delicious and they also soak coconut milk sauce very well and together it gave such amazing delicious flavor. Meanwhile, the fresh mango slice cut through the richness of the rice and coconut milk. Overall these dessert appeals to those wanting something light and still delish.

Plus this sweet rice recipe is something I make multiple times. especially during summer times.

Ingredient And Substitute:

Traditionally the sweet rice recipe is made using either coconut milk or coconut cream with sugar. But when you use coconut cream the dish is creamier but also contains a higher level of fat level.

The entire recipe is made up of just 7 ingredients:

  • Rice

  • Coconut milk

  • Sugar ( coconut sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup)

  • Salt

  • Corn flour

  • Mango

  • Toasted sesame seed or coconut flakes for garnish

For those wanting to enjoy this is the slightly lighter way though there is an option:

Coconut milk: You can use a low-fat version of coconut milk. Yes, it will make rice slightly less creamy, but still delicious.

The sweetener: You can omit sugar here instead of sugar you can just use coconut sugar, maple sugar, etc.

This recipe is :

  • Dairy-free

  • Vegan

  • Creamy

  • Fresh

  • Healthier

  • Can be made of low fat

  • Can be made refined sugar-free

How to make mango sticky rice :

There are just a few steps to make this sticky rice. You just need to make rice and after preparing coconut sauce and combine these with mango slices, and then serve easy-peasy.


  • First, prepare the rice. In a large fine sieve, rinse the rice thoroughly until the water runs clear. Then fill a large bowl/dish with cold water submerge the rice-filled sieve into the water and soak for at least an hour or half n hour.


  • Drain the soaking water and add fresh water to a large pot and bring it to a boil. Place the sieve with rice or you can use here muslin cloth and put rice in it. And cover with a lid and steam it for about 20 to 30 min depending on rice quantity or depend on instruction.


  • In a separate pan combine coconut milk and sweetener of your choice and a pinch of salt. Bring mixture to boil and stir to dissolve the sweetener. once dissolved, turn off the heat and stir the steamed rice into the coconut sauce or you can just pour it over the rice and mix very well all together.


  • Meanwhile. a few minutes before serving. You can prepare the extra sauce. Do this by adding coconut milk, sweetener and salt, and the cornflour slurry to a small pan. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for a minute until thickened. And then remove it from the heat. Just before serving, prepare your mango slice ( make sure you use fresh ripe mango ), and then it's time to serve.
