Mangoes With Sticky Coconut Rice
COCONUT RICE (Khao Man): Coconut rice can be prepared with another ordinary or sticky rice, depending on what sort of dish it is to be served with. If using sticky rice, soak it first in plenty of water for at least two hours, but preferably overnight If prepared with ordinary rice, serve with Salted Sun-Dried Beef (Nua Dad Diao) or other savoury dishes. Sticky coconut rice is delicious with mangoes.
All these are from "Discover Thai Cooking" by Chaslin, Canungmai and These are typical of the "street food" that one buys from the vendors with mini-kitchens on pushcarts all over Thailand. Thai desserts and confections tend to nastily/heavenly sweet and rich. You might be careful using the amount of salt called for in these recipes. The Thais tend to like their stuff saltier than we would. They even make lemonade with salt instead of sugar!
