Thai mango sticky rice is arguably the most popular dessert in Thailand. With it’s rich flavor and melt in your mouth texture, this will be a recipe that you make on repeat.

Although a little time consuming, the result is absolutely worth the wait! I do love that you can work on other things in the kitchen or home while you wait for this recipe to come together. I am always worried it won’t come together and soak in all of the liquids, but with enough heat and patience, it always works.
