Thai Mango Glutinous Rice Dessert (Khao Niaow Ma Muang, 泰国芒果糯米饭)



Thailand is the one the major producers for both glutinous rice and mangos and coconut is plentiful abundant in the country. Combining these three main ingredients into a Thai representative dessert is not surprising at all….


However, it is rather unusual that fresh fruits were served with cooked glutinous rice and beside this Thai signature dessert, I really can’t recall any dessert that have fruit and rice combinations.


Whatever it is, this is a nice and well known desserts among the tourists.. It also appears in the menu of most Thai restaurant overseas.. This is not surprising since this dessert is very easy to prepare and ingredients are easily available..


Since it is such a well known dessert, I do not think I will need to further elaborate the dessert. I have decided to prepare this dessert because it is easy and mango is extremely cheap these few weeks in Singapore. I bought mine at 85cents (SGD) each.. It is really a deal and need no further consideration when I bought about 10 mango in one go.



Servings: 3-4 adults servings


Glutinous Rice

  • 1-2 mangos
  • 1 cup of glutinous rice
  • 2-3 stalks of pandan leaves
  • 100 ml of coconut milk (1/2 packet)
  • Pinches of salt

Coconut milk Sauce

  • 100 ml of coconut milk (1/2 packet)
  • Pinches of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of castor sugar


  • Some sesame seeds (optional)




  • Wash the glutinous rice, pandan leaves and put it in a rice cooker pot. Dilute the 100 ml of coconut milk with plain water until it makes up to one cup.of diluted coconut milk. Add the coconut milk to the rice.  Add salt and cook the glutinous rice as per “sticky rice” function in the rice cooker. If your rice cooker do not have the sticky rice function, steam over stove until the glutinous rice is soft. Once cooked, let it cool and set aside for assembly.


  • In a small pot, add coconut milk, sugar and salt. Bring to boil under medium heat. Constant stirring is required such that the coconut milk will not curdle. Set aside for assembly.

  • Peel the mango and cut into your desired sizes.

  • For assembly, have your serving plate, put some freshly cut mango and glutinous rice. Drizzle the cooked coconut milk on top of the glutinous rice. Sprinkle some sesame seeds if desired. Best served as a dessert.



This recipe is very simple and there is nothing much I can write about. Do give it a try since mango is in seasons now.


Hope you like the post today. Cheers and have a nice day.
