Steamed Momordica Sweet Rice (Xôi Gấc)

  • 1.5 kilograms glutinous rice (also called sweet rice, sticky rice)
  • ½ cup non-alcohol vegan white wine
  • 1 red gấc fruit (also called Momordica Cochinchinensis, momordica, or red baby jackfruit)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 100 grams vegan sugar


  1. Wash glutinous rice. Add ½ tube of orange natural food coloring to water. Soak glutinous rice in colored water overnight. The next day, rinse well. Drain off the water.
  2. Cut the gấc fruit and discard the seeds. Put the gấc flesh in a bowl. Add ½ cup non-alcohol vegan white rice. Mix thoroughly. Soak for about 30 minutes.
  3. Mix well glutinous rice, vegan sugar, gấc, and 1 teaspoon salt. Put in a steamer.
  4. Steam in high heat for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and mix the rice evenly. Add ½ cup coconut milk. Cover with lid and steam for another 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Put in a colander. Sprinkle ½ cup coconut milk. Mix well until the glutinous rice absorbs all the coconut milk. Steam the rice another 20 minutes. Mix one last time thoroughly so that the glutinous rice is evenly cooked. Steam for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!
