Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango Recipe

The Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango Recipe offers a delightful and authentic Asian dessert experience, popular in countries like Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos. The key ingredients include glutinous rice, mango, coconut milk, sugar, and a touch of salt. The dish is known for its wonderful taste and is a staple in the dessert repertoire of Southeast Asian cuisine.

To begin the recipe, glutinous rice is soaked in water for 30 minutes, washed, and then microwaved with water for 14 minutes until done. The cooked rice is mixed with half a can of coconut milk, sugar, and a dash of salt, creating a luscious and fragrant sticky rice base. This mixture is allowed to cool before serving.

The coconut sauce, a crucial element in this dessert, is made by combining half a can of coconut milk, sugar, cornstarch, and a pinch of salt. This mixture is heated until hot and bubbly, creating a thick and flavorful sauce that complements the sweet and sticky rice.

To assemble the Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango, the prepared glutinous rice is placed on a serving plate. Sliced ripe mango is arranged around the rice, and the coconut sauce is generously spooned over the top. The final touch involves sprinkling roasted coconut flakes and sesame seeds, adding texture and additional layers of flavor to the dessert.

This recipe provides a simple yet indulgent way to enjoy the classic combination of coconut and mango in a traditional Southeast Asian dessert. The Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango is a treat for the senses, offering a perfect balance of sweetness and richness.
