  1. Oh god I am in heaven with my sticky rice and mango.
    I eat mangos every single day ,great fruit.

  2. Really…you cooked the rice with water AND coconut milk and your sticky rice didn’t look swollen…In fact they look pretty good. I just posted my traditional sticky rice and mango recipe (just the way that Thai people have been doing) on my blog this week too but I never try cooking all of them together like yours. I might have to try. Just to see the result…

    1. I used sweet rice , im not sure that was the correct rice to use. the recipe worked and we enjoyed it but i see your rice and thats the rice i wish i used. thanks for the comment ,i will follow you on your site. i love your creativity and your skill.

      1. Are they the short grain Japanese or Korean sweet rice? If those are the one you can use them too. They’re actually the sticky rice with the same, molecule structure. (You know the regular rice and sweet rice or sticky rice are not the same kind. They’re different down to the molecule structure of the carb.)

        The easy way to identify are.

        1) The rice grain appeared to be opaque white before cooking.
        2) Then they get more transparency after cooked.

        The regular rice are more transparent but then get more opaque after cooked.

        Why do we need sticky rice?
        Because the regular rice would not absorb the coconut milk after cooking like the sticky rice and of course, not sticky, flakier texture. You can tell if you follow my method with the regular rice not the sticky rice, the end result will be very soupy. If they come out find, you are good.
