How To Make Mango Sticky Rice Dessert
Mango sticky rice is a traditional Thai dessert made with glutinous rice, fresh mango and coconut milk, and eaten with a fork, spoon, or sometimes the hands. Although originating in Thailand, it is consumed throughout the Indochina region of Southeast Asia, including Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
Have you ever tried this dessert and loved it?! I first tried this dessert at a Thai restaurant and I was like ‘whoa, this is damn good!’. It’s very rare nowadays that we would go to a Thai restaurant and when we do, there’s usually no room for dessert after the main course. So when the craving hits, I just make it at home! It’s easy and the best part – you control how much sugar you put in your food.
Here’s my version of the Mango Sticky Rice dessert. If you want to try making the traditional Thai way – I suggest you either top this off with yellow mung beans or roasted sesame seeds.
