Royal Umbrella

Savor the Taste of Two Cultures Blending with Royal Umbrella Rice

MANILA, Philippines – It’s official: summer is finally here. And with it, we’re always on the hunt for something sweet to energize us. One refreshing treat that you can whip up at home is your own version of Thai Mango Sticky Rice. This dessert gives you a taste of Thailand’s authentic flavors, and with the help of Royal Umbrella and its fragrant aromas and distinct textures, you’ll definitely enjoy it even more.

Also known as Khao Neaw Mamuang, Thai Mango Sticky Rice combines the sweetness of ripe mangoes and the creaminess of coconut milk with glutinous (or sticky) rice. Now that Philippine Mangoes are in season and Royal Umbrella is available nationwide, you can easily infuse two cultures into one plate and elevate the experience.

Royal Umbrella uses Hom Mali Rice, long-grains that are harvested only once a year from the best rice fields in Thailand. These top-grade grains are known for their distinct Jasmine fragrance and fluffy texture when cooked.

Follow this simple recipe and enjoy your Khao Neaw Mamuang in just 45 minutes!


1½ cups uncooked Royal Umbrella Red Thai Hom Mali rice

1 15oz. can coconut milk

1 large mango, peeled, pitted, and cut into cubes

  1. Place the jasmine rice in a medium pot and rinse 3-4 times with cool water. Add the can of coconut milk, salt, and one cup of water and cook. Bring to a boil over medium heat.

  2. Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

  3. After the rice has simmered, let it sit for an additional 10 minutes. Once it has rested, fluff with a fork and slowly drizzle honey over it to mix it in.
