This week's Featured Food Friday player is...

Ms. Tetcha who blogs over at Delight My Appetite with her post: Family Dinner at Kabisera ng Dencio's

Now that's quite an elegant way of presenting the turon (plantain banana wrapped in spring roll wrappers, then deep-fried), one of my fave snacks! It does go well with ice cream (like almost anything else, lol). Ms. Tetcha and her family had a very lovely dinner that night..and if you want to see what other drool-worthy food they had, then don't forget to click on the picture above!

My food post for this week is something that I have always wanted to recreate on my own: Sticky Rice with Mangoes.


  • sticky rice (about half a kilo), cooked in water with pandan leaves
  • coconut milk (two and a half cups)
  • sugar (1 cup refined/white and 1/4 cup muscovado)
  • mangoes (sliced)
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • additional half a cup of warm coconut milk


  • Cook the sticky rice first. Some use diluted coconut milk; I used plain water, simply because my coconut milk wasn't enough. lol. Served the same purpose, though. Let cool once cooked.
  • Mix the two and a half cups of coconut milk with the sugar and place on low fire. Let simmer and mix every once in a while until slightly thick. Turn off heat.
  • Add the cooked sticky rice then mix well. Set aside.

To serve:

  • Place a decent portion of the sweet sticky rice on a plate, then add the sliced mangoes. Drizzle a fair amount of warm coconut milk all over then sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
  • Enjoy! :)

I loved it! This was my first time to cook sticky rice (yeah, it really was!) since I find it kind of time-consuming when it comes to cooking 'kakanins' (snacks that usually needs sticky rice, powdered or not). I love eating them, though. lol.

My first taste of this sticky rice/mango combo was at a Thai restaurant and I was hooked! Whenever I see this on a restaurant's menu (which doesn't happen often), I always order at least one serving! :)

Thanks so much for linking and playing with me, everyone! So sorry haven't had the chance to visit your links, but will do it real soon! Been really busy these past few weeks. sigh.

Oh I love sticky rice with mangoes! They have this in Abe! called Sikreto ni Maria. I order it every chance I got. I think it's great that you were able to recreate it.

BTW, I'm visiting via the BC Bloggers list to give you the Liebster Award. I'd love to get to know you more. :)
