I wish I could say I tried this for the first time while perusing the street markets in Bangkok...but instead it was at this mind blowing Thai food restaurant that our friends introduced us to. This place took Thai food to the next level; dare I say it has even become one of my favorites!
So back to the rice...It's warm, sweet and soaked in coconut milk. If that doesn't make you jump for joy...the soft mangos add a tangy and distinctive twist that'll have you coming back for thirds and maybe fourths. If it doesn't, well I guess we just can't be friends :-).
Here is the recipe (found below) and seriously don't judge it 'til you taste it...I promise it's a game changer. Plus, it's kind of nice to change it up in the dessert department?!
***This dessert is very popular among the Thai people where they take a lot of pride in the process; and cutting fruit is an art form. I have a new appreciation for anyone who can cut a mango and have it look pretty...I was having some mango cutting issues to say the least.
