Thai style Black Sticky Rice Recipe

Thai style Black Sticky Rice with coconut milk and fresh banana

We found a lovely Thai vegan restaurant in Chiang Mai called Morning Glo
ry. I went everyday for their black sticky rice with coconut milk, mango and banana. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, really doesn’t matter it works for every meal. I loved the recipe so much I took a cooking class with the chef so I could make it again and again!

Now I can make black sticky rice whenever my heart desires and I hope you can too!


  • Black rice and white rice
  • Coconut milk
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Honey optional
  • Banana
  • Mango You can use one or the other when it comes to the fruits, or both if you want to completely go for it!


Soak 2 cups of rice, you can do half/half black and white or just black or just white. For our recipe, we did all black. For black rice you need to soak overnight at least 5 hours.

Take your pre-soaked rice and steam it in a bamboo basket, or cook it in a rice cooker with 2:1 water ratio, for 15-20 minutes

Step 2

In a wok boil 1 cup of coconut milk

Step 3
Add sugar to taste and a pinch of salt

Add sticky rice to the wok and warm it up, constantly stirring till it thickens. You’re finished!


Step 6
Serve. Prepare a plate with your sliced fruit, sticky rice, and drizzle the side of coconut milk on top. You can add extra honey if you’re really indulging!
