Do you like your dessert cold or warm? Personally, I prefer my desserts warm. I even heat up some of my cakes if I have the option to. Well, I suppose the only exception will be ice-cream, but I’m not a big fan of ice-cream to begin with. Thai Mango Stick Rice should be no stranger to most people. It is one of the more popular dessert that people will order when they visit a Thai restaurant.
That warm, rich, mushy, and sweet sticky rice possess a complexity that makes you want to reach for more as you try to figure it out. It pairs so beautifully with the sweet & slightly tart mango that melts ever so gently in your mouth. And that sauce, oh that sauce… the one that I caught myself secretly wishing every-single-time that there was more of it. If I have to choose to have only 1 dessert for the rest of my life. This have got to be it. I will include a video link that demonstrates how to make the mango rose below.
Here is the video on how to cut and layer the mango rose: Mango Rose Video. It’s actually not as complicated as it looks. Took me about 5 minutes to put together this mango rose. So don’t be intimidated by it! 🙂 Just remember if the mango is soft, cut thicker slices. If it is harder, then cut thinner slices.
Thai Mango Sticky Rice
- 1 large ripe mango skinned and sliced
- 1 cup sticky/glutinous rice
- 1-1/4 cup water
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 2-3 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Rinse your rice until water runs clear.
- Add rice and water in rice cooker pot and let stand for 30 minute.
- Turn on rice cooker and allow to cook.
- When rice is cooked, let it sit for 5 more minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare sauce.
- Bring coconut milk, sugar, and salt to a boil.
- Lower heat to simmer until sugar dissolved and sauce thickened.
- Fluff the rice, then pour in 3/4 of the sauce into the rice.
- Mix to combine, then allow rice to absorb the coconut sauce. (about 10 minutes)
- Assemble the rice with sliced mango, and spoon sauce over.
- Serve warm.

Can I keep this dessert overnight? Do you think it will turned bad because of the coconut?

It keeps fine in the fridge. I made extra portions for the next day and it heats up fine in the microwave. 🙂
