Ready Time

45 mins


5 servings


  • Mangoes, peeled and sliced
  • Sweet sticky rice
  • Coconut milk
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Water


Begin by measuring out the desired amount of sweet sticky rice and rinsing it until the water runs clear. This step removes excess starch and ensures the rice cooks evenly.

Next, soak the rice in a bowl of water for at least four hours, or overnight if possible.

Once the rice has soaked, drain it and transfer it to a large pot or Dutch oven. Add enough water to cover the rice by about an inch.

Bring the water to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

While the rice is simmering, prepare the coconut milk sauce. In a separate saucepan, combine the coconut milk, sugar, and salt.

Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar.

When the rice has finished simmering, pour the coconut milk sauce over it. Be careful not to pour the sauce directly onto the rice, as this can cause the rice to become mushy.

Instead, pour the sauce around the edges of the pot and allow it to slowly seep into the rice.

Cover the pot and continue to simmer the rice for another 30-45 minutes, or until the rice is cooked through and has absorbed most of the coconut milk sauce. Stir the rice occasionally to ensure that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.

Once the rice is cooked, remove it from the heat and let it stand for 10 minutes.

This will allow the rice to absorb any remaining coconut milk and become sticky. Serve the sweet sticky rice warm, topped with sliced mangoes.

The mangoes add a sweet and juicy contrast to the sticky rice, creating a delicious and refreshing dessert.


  • For a richer flavor, use full-fat coconut milk.
  • If you don’t have time to soak the rice overnight, you can soak it for at least 2 hours.
  • If the rice is too dry after cooking, add a little more water or coconut milk.
  • If the rice is too sticky, add a little more water.
  • Serve the sweet sticky rice with your favorite toppings, such as mangoes, bananas, or jackfruit.
  • This dish can be made ahead of time and reheated when you’re ready to serve.
