Mango Sticky Rice with coconut sauce – Special

Mango Sticky Rice with coconut sauce – Special

I have been thinking of making this for ages in fact years. I wanted to make mango sticky rice pudding but with a twist. So as to confuse the senses. Look like Kueh Seri Muka, but is coconut sweet with a coconut sauce aka Thai Mango Sticky Rice Dessert (Khao Niaow Ma Muang)

The colouring are all natural mango bright yellow and the blue is from blue pea flowers. The riper your mango is the brighter the yellow orange colour is. The more blue pea flowers you use the more darker blue the colour is. 

I have a friend coming over to UK for a visit and she is bringing me some more blue pea flowers so I have decided to splash out and use my precious stash. 

(I am going to experiment this using gelatin powder as a setting agent for the mango topping next and will post recipe if it turn out nice) For the moment I feel this is a good eat.

Sticky Rice Base

Mango topping

  • Remove and set aside to cool down completely before cutting.

Coconut Sauce

  • Mix everything together and cook over low heat.

To serve

  • Serve with slices of mango and coconut sauce. It would be nice if you can add coconut shaving too.


Please have fun experimenting. Here I made a recipe to use up 2 tins of coconut milk as it’s 400ml a tin. The adding of sugar more or less if entirely up to you. Please adjust to taste.
