Sweet coconut sticky rice with Mango is one of my favorite things to eat ever! When I lived in the Bay Area, there was this fast-food Thai joint that I would drop in every time I visited SF, but I no longer live in California and the last time I tried to find the place it had closed. Anyhow, I am super excited to try making it for myself with your recipe- thanks for sharing.

About

I have been cooking up a storm. For the past 4 weeks or so, I have made many dishes from my childhood as part of my photography folio on food and identity at school. I don't usually make Thai desserts much here. How funny - cooking these familiar dishes really brought back a lot of my childhood memories.

Thai sweet coconut sticky rice with mango brought me back memories about my mother's father who used to own a mango farm in Thailand. Every harvest season, I remember I often went to stay at my grandfather's place to help harvest. A thank you gift I got back was kilos of fresh raw and ripe mangoes. I brought them back home and always went to buy the best sweet coconut sticky rice from a shop at the back of an alley where I grew up in the next morning. Mmmmm the aroma of jasmine flowers in the sticky rice and rich coconut cream and my grandfather's organic mangoes were really comforting.
