Mango with Sticky Rice Recipe from Brunei

Mango with Sticky Rice is a famous dessert in Southeast Asia. To make this classic Brunei dish, combine white rice with coconut milk and sugar to turn that savory rice into a delicious dessert! Add some sweet, delicious mango on top and you will have one happy tummy.


  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked short-grain white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 mangos sliced or diced
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Put rice in a bowl, cover with water, and soak overnight.
  2. In morning, pour the rice into a colander to drain all of the water. Run water over the rice until the water runs clear.
  3. Place the soaked rice in a medium pot and add 2 cups water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover. Leave the lid on the pot for 20 min. When done, turn off heat, remove lid, and fluff rice with a fork.
  4. When the rice has about 5-10 minutes left to cook, make the coconut milk mixture. Combine the coconut milk, sugar, and salt in a small pot and mix to combine. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Allow to boil for about 2-3 minutes, until all of the sugar is dissolved.
  5. Pour the coconut milk mixture into the rice mixture. Cover again, and allow to sit for about ten minutes. This will allow the rice time to soak up the excess liquid. You must do this while the rice is still warm.
  6. To serve, use a 1/3 measuring cup. Form the rice into the cup and then turn it over onto the plate. Line the plate with strips or cubes of mango. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Enjoy!
