  • 1 can cream style corn about 2 cups
  • 1 can whole sweet corn kernels (including the liquid), about 2 cups
  • 1 cup sweet rice, sticky rice, glutinous rice, or Calrose rice
  • 2 cans coconut milk about 4 cups
  • 3 cups water
  • ¾ cup* sugar


  • Place a large pot over medium heat.
  • Add sweet rice and water. Simmer until rice is soft and almost all of the water has been absorbed. Stir occasionally to make sure that the bottom doesn’t burn.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to simmer until corn is soft and done.
  • Remove from heat. May be served cold or warm.


If you want, you can replace the two cans of corn with 3-4 ears of fresh corn. Just cut the kernels off the cob with a knife and scrape the cob with a spoon to get the corn “milk”.
*This is really up to you and your tastebuds. You can start with 3/4 cup of sugar and just add more later. Like my grandma says, just taste it and adjust until it tastes right 🙂
