Mango Sticky Rice

One of our favourite desserts on the road, Khao Niaow Ma Muang, always seemed to remedy whatever backpacking debacle we faced on a given day. Nimmi and I ordered it every opportunity we had. The mangos were, without fail, ripe as sunshine and each restaurant or street-stand had their own take on the rice: creamy, sweet, plain, garnished, un-garnished, risotto-like, etc. As we pushed further into the Thai countryside, the quality of the dessert got better, but the best version we had was on the island of Koh Lanta. After a particularly rough day of motorbiking accidents and some healthy arguing, animosity ceased upon first bite of the decadent, coconut-y dessert. How many desserts can force amends to be made? Maybe cheesecake... but mango sticky rice was a first! Here's a good recipe I found, if boiling rice for a few hours interests you this weekend: Authentic Mango Sticky Rice Recipe
