Suman at Manga (Sticky Rice with Mango)

July 4, 2014 | No Comments


Welcome to week twenty six of Reddit’s 52 weeks of Cooking Challenge. This week’s theme is Philippines. I just purchased some mangoes the other day at my girl’s request. While waiting for them to get perfectly ripe, i discovered an unopened bag of sticky sweet rice in my pantry.  I decided to make sticky sweet coconut rice with mango,  a traditional Filipino dish, Suman a Manga.

I added a dash of cinnamon to this dish. It was the perfect spice to increase the comfort level of this already comforting rice pudding-like dessert.

I found a lot of recipes out there for this dish, and this is my take on it. For those of you who are grilling right now, i saw a recipe that grilled a half of mango with brown sugar. Be sure to leave a comment and let me know the changes you make. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled, and should be. Enjoy sticky rice with mango with your family and friends.
