Best Thai mango sticky rice recipe

This is a very special recipe, from South East Asian cuisine popular in Thailand , I am bowled over by its simplicity and the blast of flavors it releases, when you add a spoon of this dessert in your mouth. The dessert though exotic for Indians, feels like home, specially for me as East Indians have this concept of eating rice and milk with sugar and mangoes during the mango season. This dish reminds me of just those summer noon at my grand parents place filled with love ,laughter and mischief of childhood.

During my trip to Thailand , me and my daughter had enrolled in a cooking class, and learnt making this wonderful authentic dish demonstrated by the Thai instructor. Authentic Thai sticky rice uses palm sugar instead of the regular sugar. The rice after being soaked in water should be steamed. The flavor of the coconut sauce is enhanced by the addition of cardamom.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of Thai glutinous rice
  • 500 ml of coconut milk fresh or canned
  • palm sugar or brown sugar or white sugar
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • Mango pieces
  • 1 tsp roasted sesame seeds for garnish

Preparations

  • Soak the glutinous rice for at least 2 hours
  • Then steam the rice for 30 to 35 minutes till they are soft and sticky
  • While the rice is getting steamed, heat coconut milk with sugar till it dissolves in it.
  • Add corn flour slurry and cook till the sauce becomes slightly thick
  • pour half of this sauce to the rice and mix.
  • serve in a plate with the remaining sauce poured on the top.
  • Peel and cut mangoes and arrange on the side of the rice.
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
