We promise you, it’s an experience you will never forget. Making this authentic Thai dessert could be a challenge if you don’t get the right rice for it. As the name suggests, you need sticky rice (also known as glutinous rice). Be sure to get the right rice for this dessert, as other types of rice will not work for this dish. A variation for this dish is also to use black glutinous rice instead of glutinous rice, which gives a nice contrasting dark colour to the pale luscious mango. If you love Thai food, mangoes or sticky rice, you will love our recipe for Mango with sticky rice.
