    Classic recipe

    Thai Purple Sticky Rice Pudding with Salted Coconut Cream

    This simple dessert is a street cart favorite in Thailand, and it pairs wonderfully with a dollop of decadent coconut cream with just the right amount of salt to balance the sweetness. A sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds adds crunch and nutty flavor, while mango, pineapple or banana work well as delicious fruit toppings.
