Kao Niao Ma-Muang

Kao Niao = Sticky Rice
Ma-Maung = Mango

Last month when I was in BKK …. I ate Kao Niao Ma-Muang everyday.
I think it’s almost the end of the mango season now.

But hub bought 10 mangoes yesterday & to my surprise, they were very sweet … like those we ate in BKK.

It's $3.50 per fruit ... quite ex. but it's money worth spending.

This dessert is very filling .... really delicious if your mango is honey sweet & very ripe….try this recipe.

What U need:
  • 2 Mangoes
  • 100 g Glutinous rice
  • 100 ml Coconut milk
  • 100 ml Water
  • 100 g Sugar
  • ½tsp Salt
  • ½tsp Rice flour
  • 6 Panda leaves


  1. Wash & soak the glutinous rice in some water (enough water to cover it) for 4 hours. This will make the sticky rice easier to cook.
  2. Lay 3 pandan leaves on the bottom of pan & steam the rice for 30 min to cook it through.
  3. In a pan, add the water and sugar, and bring to the boil…dissolve the sugar completely.
  4. Add the cooked sticky rice into the sugar pan and stir well to mix it.
  5. In a different sauce pan, add coconut milk, the rice flour, pandan leaves and salt and cook it on a low heat for 5mins or until the coconut milk thickens from the flour.
  6. Peel the mango and slice the flesh into halves or cube them.
  7. To serve, put a bed of the sticky rice on a plate, followed by a layer of mango slices, and pour some of the coconut sauce over the top.
