What is Thai Mango Sticky Rice?

Sticky Rice (Sweet Rice or Glutinous Rice) is a non-translucent, opaque milky-colored, long grain rice. Despite the name, Glutinous Rice is gluten-free.

Perfectly cooked sticky rice is firm, chewy, not mushy, and filled with fragrance.

And Thai Mango Sticky Rice is mainly made with sticky rice, mango, and coconut milk. Glistening with rich & creamy sweet coconut sauce with just a hint of saltiness to enhance the flavors.

Which Coconut Milk to Use?

We experimented this recipe with both canned coconut milk(left) and  boxed 100% unsweetened coconut milk(right). Both worked great, but flavorwise, we like the boxed version a little more.

*Note: the coconut milk we used to develop this recipe is 100% Unsweetened Coconut Milk NOT the beverage or refrigerated type of Coconut Milk.
