Instead of mixing the coconut milk with half water, I used the recommend amount of water but in coconut milk. It does take a bit longer to cook, but you get more of the sticky consistency as found in purchasing the sticky rice. Everything about it was perfect, excellent recipe without having to go and purchase the sticky rice from an asian market of the sorts.
The easiest, tastiest 'cheaters' version of coconut sticky rice! Absolutely LOVE this recipe! I have also subbed pineapple for the mango and it was just as lovely :) Thanks Sass!
I took a picture months ago and forgot to review it! Weird. I love this stuff. It's vegan, which means my mother can eat it, and extremely tastey which means my husband will eat it. Even my kids like it. It's mild enough that almost everyone who has tried it has loved it, but flavorful enough that I can enjoy a whole bowl of this by myself. We've tried it with mango and strawberries and enjoyed both fruits. I've even tried sprinkling a little Chinese Five Spice powder on the rice with great success. Thanks for a keeper we've made many times since the picture was taken.
Excellent recipe! I split the amount of liquid needed for the rice up into 3/4 coconut milk and 1/4 water and just simmered it on low till all the liquid was absorbed. When it cooled a bit I used my 1/4 cup measuring cup to make them into a nice shape. I've served both plain and with fruit and these are a hit either way! Thanks for posting!
If you can't find sticky rice (glutinous rice) at a local Asian market, you can order it online at importfood.com.
This is the best.
This is an awesome recipe! Everytime we go to a Thai place in our neighborhood, we have to get the Mango Sticky Rice for desert. I chose this recipe over others because the Jasmine/Basmati Rice was easier to get. It was sooooooo good, very authentic atleast from my experiance. This one is a keeper!
