Sticky rice Thai desserts!

  • Banana wrapped in sticky rice (Khao Tom Mat- Banana filling)

A lot of Thai desserts use banana as one of its main ingredients because banana is a cheap and common fruit. Thai people wrap bananas in sweet sticky rice like burrito style and then wrap them inside banana leaves. Then we steam them until they are ready to be eaten.





  • Custard Sticky Rice (Khao Neow Sung Ka Yar)

To make custard, duck egg, sugar, coconut milk, and pandan leaf water are mixed together and then steamed. The local store normally puts a slice of custard on top of the rice and then wraps them up in banana leaf.





  • Black Bean Sticky Rice (Khao Neow Dam)

Thai people will cook the black bean over the stove with coconut milk, sugar, and salt until the black beans soften. When the black beans are ready to be served, we put a scoop or so of sweet glutinous rice into the bowl. Eat it hot or cold! This dessert can be found at most Thai dessert street vendors along the streets of Thailand.






  • Durian Sticky Rice (Khao Neow Tu Rean)

Durian is a king of fruit in Thailand! It is smelly for some people but those who like it would love it! It is similar to mango sticky rice but the sweet sticky rice is eaten fresh durian instead and durian coconut milk will have to be poured on the rice before it is ready to eat.






  • Mango Sticky Rice (Khao Neow ma muang)

The best mango should be eaten during the summer season. They will steam the rice with fresh coconut milk, salt, and a little bit of sugar. Some shops might even add natural colorings to the rice, for example by using pandan leaves for green color or butterfly peas for blue. Before you eat this, don’t forget to sprinkle crispy yellow mung beans on top of the rice!
