Mango Sticky Rice


Besides durians & bananas, my teens love mangoes too. I just cut a thick slice from each side of the seed on the unpeeled mango. Make some criss-cross cuts in the flesh. Turn it inside out and they would just hold the mango skin, bite the cubes of juicy mango flesh ... enjoy eating the fruit in this way.
Ever since they had tasted Mango Sticky Rice at one of those Thai Restaurants when they were young, they had asked 'can mommy make this at home?'

I couldn't recall where I have obtained the recipe from. During those days, I just glance few recipes here and there for some "know-how" and adjusted the quantity and sweetness etc. But I would usually make a small portion as glutinous rice is very filling coupled with the milky coconut milk.
Left 2 mangoes in the fruits bowl
Yeah it's mango season. Bought some and when my big boy saw these mangoes,  he said "wah ! So many mangoes ... it's been a long time you didn't make mango sticky rice hor". He hinted ... hee hee.

I like to add few pieces of pandan leaves to the rice and coconut milk mixture ... more fragrant.

Mango Sticky Rice (4 servings)
Ingredients:
170g of glutinous rice (I used the cup for measuring cooking rice 1 full cup).
1 small packet 200ml coconut milk
3 to 4 small pcs crystal rock sugar with 4 to 5 tablespoons of water
Few pieces of pandan leaves
Pinch of salt
1 ripe mango

Method:
1) Wash and soak glutinous rice for few hours or overnight.

2) Drained, spread rice with 2 pieces of pandan leaves over a heatproof plate, place over a saucepan of simmering water. Cover the saucepan and steam for 25 - 30 minutes or until rice is tender and translucent.

3) Prepare the coconut milk mixture. Dissolve the rock sugar with water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Place 1 - 2 pieces pandan leaves (about 3" - 4" lengthwise), pour in 100ml coconut milk. Stir the coconut milk till heated through (do not boil).

4) Once the glutinous rice is cooked, transfer the rice to a large bowl. *Add the coconut milk mixture and stir to combine, ensure the rice is coated with coconut milk. Set aside for 10 minutes to stand.
* may add all the coconut milk or lesser according to your preference.

5) In a clean saucepan,  pour the remaining coconut milk and a pinch of salt.  Stir till heated through (do not boil).

6) Divide the rice among serving plates. Top with some mango slices. Spoon over the thick coconut milk.

A spoonful of juicy sweet mango and sticky coconut rice ...yum yum! Enjoy!

    1. Hi Phong Hong, hee hee ...nowadays kids are fortunate for occasional weekend family dine out ... treats at fast food or restaurants. Think my time when i was a kid could have such luxury only during parents' birthday celebrations.
