There are quite a few recipes out there and the authentic version takes longer. I used a shortcut version and chose a recipe found on epicurious. This recipe simplified and cut out a lot of the hours needed for traditional mango sticky rice but it still tasted delicious.
I used a glutinous rice which is different from regular rice. You can find it at asian supermarkets. The rice is mixed with coconut milk and some sugar and then finally topped with some mango. I should have used a more ripe mango but I didn’t have any on hand so my mango is a little raw and pale.
