Eid Mubarak to all my blogger friends and readers.
This is hands-down my favorite Thai dessert. I always wanted to try it out. The other day, I had kept some mango chopped in a bowl to eat just like that and N comes and says, hey, why not make sticky rice with mango. I am like ok, yes, why not?
If any of you have tried it before, will surely agree that this is one lip-smacking, mouth watering dessert and usually when we go to Thai restaurant, we fight upon who will eat it first and fast and more :)
So, without further delay, here is the super yummy recipe. My rice became little runny, never-the-less, tasted great. Please keep an eye on how much water you add. Cook the rice per package's instructions.
Thai Sticky Rice with Mango
Thai Sticky Rice - 1 cup (you will get it in any Oriental shops)
Unsweetened Coconut Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup (increase or decrease based on how sweet you would like your rice to be)
Sesame Seeds - 1 tbsp
Ripe Mango - 2, finely sliced or chopped.
- Cook rice per package's instructions and keep it aside.
- Lightly dry roast sesame seeds and keep them aside.
- Chop or slice mangoes to desired shape and keep them aside.
- Now, take a heavy bottomed pan and add coconut milk to it
- Let it simmer mixing continuously on low heat. You don't want to heat it at high flame otherwise the milk will curdle.
- Once the coconut milk has got one boil, add sugar to it and let it melt all.
- Now, add 3/4 of this coconut milk mix into the rice bowl/pot and let the rice sit and absorb all the milk. Don't let the mix cool down all the way.
- Now, take one portion of this absorbed rice in a serving plate (yes, plate is better than a bowl), sprinkle it with little of the coconut milk mix kept aside, sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds and then top it with sliced/chopped mango (some people like mango on top some like it on the side, so go with your liking).
Serve it as a perfect ending to any meal (not just Thai). This dessert is served hot or else the sticky rice will become too hard due to all the extra starch it has.
I am sending this to Akheela's Festive Rice event.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
