Mango Sticky Rice

Mango on sticky rice is a traditional summer dessert because mangoes are in season during the summer months of April and May in Thailand. In Thai it’s called khao neow mamuang (ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง), khao neow (ข้าวเหนียว) means glutinous sticky rice, while mamuang (มะม่วง) means mango in Thai.


When I think of mango on sticky rice, I think of the days when school is out--the carefree summer. This Vegan Mango Sticky Rice dessert is made with coconut milk, sugar, salt and served with fresh mangoes. This dessert which was introduced to me by my Thai friends, is very popular in Thailand and Southeast Asia.


Within Thai cooking, sticky rice is the staple starch of northern and northeastern Thai cuisine (Isaan), and it’s also commonly used in all sorts of Thai desserts. For Thai mango sticky rice, the sticky rice is steamed, mixed with thick coconut cream and sugar, paired with perfectly ripe yellow sweet mango. This dessert is so easy to make at home and is as good, if not better, than any sweet sticky rice with mango.
