In our latest travel video we decided to satisfy our sweet tooth cravings by devouring a plate of Mango Sticky Rice (Khao Niaow Ma Muang: ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง), served with condensed coconut cream sauce at our favorite restaurant in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This is literally our favorite Thai dessert and Chang Chalaad serves it up better than anywhere we've ever tried. What makes this particular interpretation of this dish such a gormandizing delight is that the cream coconut sauce is extra thick and creamy. Every bite is pure bliss as the combination of sweet mango, sticky rice and coconut cream are like three amigos in your mouth all at once. It's the perfect excuse to gain a few extra pounds while in traveling or living in Thailand. This wonderful dessert that we shared only cost 50 Baht ($1.70 USD) and was worth every penny...err Baht.
This Mango Sticky Rice Dessert (Khao Niaow Ma Muang) is a classic Thai dessert and SO very scrumptious. Be sure to get the right rice for this dessert - regular (savory) rice will not work; you need sweet rice (see link in ingredients list). The sticky rice can either be steamed, as they do in Thailand (a colander can be used for this), or you can make it in a pot on your stove (instructions included). Place some fresh mango slices over the sicky rice, then smother with the easy coconut sauce - pure heaven! If you like mangos and/or sticky rice, you're going to love this very simple but exotic Thai dessert:
