Here are the basics on how to make your own Thai mango sticky rice from Hawaii’s best Thai restaurant:
Thai mango sticky rice is a sweet treat anyone can enjoy! To make this popular Thai dish at home, you’ll need sticky rice, coconut cream, salt, sugar, sweet yellow mangos, and yellow mung beans.
The first step in creating this mouthwatering dish is cooking perfect sticky rice. Traditional Thai restaurants will sweeten sticky rice with coconut cream and sugar, creating the ideal base for your dessert. Before cooking your sticky rice, rinse it thoroughly. Rinse your rice until all the starch is washed off and it sits in clear water as opposed to murky, white water. While your sticky rice is cooking, warm up your coconut cream, sugar, and salt into a well-combined mixture. When the rice is ready, pour your coconut cream concoction over the top and stir.
Toppings & Mango
Once your sticky rice is appropriately cooked and seasoned with sweet coconut cream, it’s time to assemble your dish! Cut a ripe, yellow mango into big chunks. For a traditional Thai restaurant garnish, add more coconut cream and crispy mung beans on top.
