Microwave Friendly Mango with Sticky Rice
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Sweets
Serves: 2 Servings
  • Ingredients
  • 2 ripe mangoes, sliced
  • 1½ cups of sweet or glutinous rice
  • 1 cup of water
  • Optional garnish
  • toasted sesame seed for garnish
  • mint leaf
  • Salted Coconut Sauce
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp starch
  1. Rinse and drain rice 4-6 times or until the water runs clear. Then let the rice soak in water for at least 3 hours. Drain of all liquid when time has lapsed.
  2. In a medium to large size microwave save bowl, whisk together coconut milk, sugar and corn starch for approximately 1 minute or until all the dry components are dissolved. Warm up sauce in the microwave on high for 2 minutes, then remove from the microwave and stir. Repeat this process once more for a total cook time of 4 minutes. Once complete set sauce to the side.
  3. In a large microwave safe bowl combine rice with 1 cup of water and cover with a lid or a plate to keep in the steam. Cook rice on high for 3 minutes, then remove from the microwave and lightly stir (maybe 2-3 folds of the spoon). Repeat this step 2 more times for a total cook time of 9 minutes. Once complete, water should be completely absorbed and the rice grains should not be hard but chewy.
  4. Stir in half of the prepared coconut sauce (approx. ½ cup) to the sticky rice. Break up any lumps and let the rice cool with the lid on.
  5. When ready to serve, stir salt into remaining coconut sauce and reheat in microwave for 20-30 seconds.
  6. Serve mango slices along rice, sprinkle toasted sesame seed garnish, and ladle additional sauce on rice and mangoes.
