Mango Sticky Rice Recipe

For better presentation, use banana leaves (wiped with a damp cloth) to garnish and serve this dessert.


  • 2 ripe mangoes peeled; mango flesh cubed or sliced
  • 1 cup uncooked sticky rice (sweet rice, glutinous rice) soaked for at least one hour and drained
  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • a small pinch of salt
  • 1 flat tbsp caster or super-fine sugar
  • water
  • toasted sesame seeds*

* To toast sesame seeds, heat a saucepan without oil. Add sesame seeds to the pan and dry fry until golden, stirring frequently with a spatula. Keep your eyes on the sesame seeds as they turn from golden to burnt easily.


  1. Place bamboo basket containing drained rice in an outer pot. Steam for 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare the sauce by adding coconut milk, sugar and salt in a microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM for 1 minute. Use a whisk to dissolve the sugar thoroughly. Alternatively, you may use a saucepan and prepare the sauce over the stove-top using low heat.
  3. Transfer steamed rice in a bowl and pour in 1/2 of the coconut sauce. Stir with a spoon to coat the rice thoroughly in the sauce. Mould the rice to rice balls if preferred.
  4. Arrange and plate sticky rice with mango cubes/slices. Pour the remaining sauce over and sprinkle sesame seeds before serving.

Noob Cook Tip:

Cover the bowl of steamed sticky rice with a damp slotted cloth (such as dim sum cloth) to keep the rice fresh. Use the rice as soon as possible, preferably within a few hours.

  1. Hi

    Tried cooking this last week for a Thai themed dinner. However the glutinous rice still have some uncooked bits despite steaming it for about 25mins. I did soak the rice over night. I wonder if it is the choice of the steamer (I placed the rice in a corning ware with lid) or the rice quality. Will try this again soon..Sabby

  2. I tried this a few days ago and my friends loved it! Thank you so much for sharing this! ◡̈ 

  3. Steaming of glutinous rice takes approx 1hour. How you do it in 20 mins????
