Mango Coconut Sticky Rice

I decided to make some dessert last night around 10 pm . . . I was still making my lectures for next week and I thought I could use a happy food related break.  I found this recipe at - it was simple, which is always good when you start cooking at 10 pm.  It also was a pretty quick recipe.  I followed the recipe pretty closely, only I didn't use and coconut extract and I used canned mango (it is what I had).
Being enjoyed with my batman glass . . .

Close up - there is a pile of rice under the mango, it is an island in the sea of coconut sauce . . .
The result was delicious!  It really hit the spot.  Perfect for a night time work break dessert.  Obviously, if you don't have sticky rice on hand you may need to prepare to make this a bit ahead of time.  I should note that it isn't very sweet.  So it you want super sweet at sugar or if you don't like super sweet it is already perfect for you.  Also, the sauce does not get particularly think while your cooking it, but it really sticks to the rice so it is easy to eat.  You could easily make this and skip the mango (would still be delicious) or you could add a different kind of fruit.  Here's to having fun even if your working for the weekend . . .

  1. This looks delicious. I'd like to think I'd try it, but I'm guessing I'll never get around to securing the mangoes! They're not exactly easy or cheap in Tokyo. :-(

  2. do they have the canned or frozen kind? They work just as well. Also you could use another soft fruit - such as peaches. I don't know about the availability of peaches, but it is cheaper here.

  3. I often used pre-sliced jarred mango (so much faster than cutting it up myself). It does come frozen too.
