Thai Sticky Rice with Mango (Khao Niaow Ma Muang)
We always remember the moments in Thailand when we had Khao Niaow Ma Muang. We ate it in South-, Central- and North Thailand. And it was always a special moment. If you ever visit Thailand Mango Sticky Rice (Thai: Khao Niaow Ma Muang) is a meal you shouldn´t miss. This delicious dessert is simple, sweet, fresh and fills you up. Our version of Khao Niaow Ma Muang is a bit differnet than the original Thai recipe but it is even more delicious.
400 ml coconut milk
1 pn salt
1 tbs palm sugar
2 fresh mangos, diced
4 tbs coconut flakes
In the beginning you have to soak the rice in cold water for at least two hours. Place Sticky Rice in a bamboo steamer and steam it for 20 minutes. If you don’t have a bamboo steamer you can use a pasta pot as well.
Meanwhile heat coconut milk in a small pot on low heat. Now add salt and palm sugar and mix well. Dice fresh mango.
Serve Sticky Rice on a plate with coconut milk. Place fruit dice on top of the rice. Scatter coconut flakes on top and serve it when rice and coconut milk are warm.
