Thai Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango

Thai Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango is a classic and one of the good asian desserts. Is fried ice cream Asian? Or an American invention? What about those crispy wanton noodles with honey and vanilla ice cream?

Being a complete dessert person myself, I was convinced that desserts didn’t really exist in Thai, Japanese and Korean cuisines. Boyyyy oh boy was I wrong.

On my trip to Bangkok last month, I discovered Sulbing, a korean dessert cafe, which serves a magical bowl that has shaved milk ice with condense milk, fresh fruit, whipped cream and cheese, which is by far the best iced dessert I have had in south east Asia.

Then came the Bake Cheese Tart, a Japanese cheese tart from Hokkaido, Japan which kicks every cheesecake I have ever had’s butt.

Then comes the most soothing coconut sticky rice with mango, which I actually learnt how to make when I went for a cooking class in Bangkok. This dessert gives a great opportunity to celebrate the Indian mango season.

You can find the recipe that Chef Leez taught me below.

Here’s what you need:

  • 60 gm sticky rice
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream – freshly made goes best with this recipe! Watch a youtube tutorial on how to make coconut cream with a shredder
  • 3/4 tbsp coconut sugar
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 ripe mango

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Soak the sticky rice in room temperature water for 3-4 hours before steaming it. (Read package instructions – The best way to cook sticky rice is by steaming it!)
  • Heat coconut cream over medium heat, add sugar, salt and warm the cream will its steaming hot  – don’t let it boil.
  • Remove from heat, add the stick rice to the bowl of hot cream, cover and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • Place sticky rice in a bowl, top it with sliced mango, and top it up with fried moong dal!

Enjoy it with cold mango and hot sticky rice!

I love food. I love to eat and I love to bake. An obsessed foodaholic, whenever I go for a holiday, before the sightseeing Google Search, there's the 'Best things to eat in - "place that I'm going to be visiting very soon"' search. With life and its ups and downs, for the many years that have gone by and hopefully, for the many years to come, nothing can take me to my "happy place" than the act of beating sugar, eggs and butter with my handheld whisk. Baking for the people I love is my act of mindfulness. In my constant endeavour to climb the ladder into the world of private equity, this blog is my oasis, keeping me in touch with my creative side. Here, I plan to write about my baking experiences, restaurant experiences, and basically everything possible about food and any other random thing I feel like going on a rant about. In today's world with the prevailing unrest, unhappiness, existential crises, this little website is where you can find something sweet, to escape what is happening around you and to even make something for someone else as an act of kindness. :)
