Blue Pea Mango Sticky Rice

Anyone who eats Thai food even if you’ve never step foot in Thailand knows about the famous Thai dessert, Sticky Rice & Mango. it is a common dessert option on most Thai menus. the best time of year to enjoy mango sticky rice is April through June, when the fruits are at their sweetest and juiciest.



Some of you might find sticky rice a bit too heavy after an actual meal, but to the Thais, it's no different from a piece of cheesecake, in the sense that it completes the meal. it's a heavy snack but that's how they roll. Apart from being a really simple yet delish Thai dessert, this sticky rice pudding is pretty much a one-pot dessert! Although you have to heat the coconut milk in a bowl, you can use the same pot for the sticky rice and in the end a pot and a bowl won't be so bad, right?



I went to Chiang Mai & Bangkok for holiday couple of years ago and saw that they have a different version there that uses blue rice from using dried blue pea flowers. Did you know that blue pea flowers are found near the tropical equator and are used as a natural food dye in Southeast Asian dishes? Pretty right? Some benefits of blue pea flowers include improving hair growth, skin and eyesight, and also acts like an antioxidant.
