Also known as Thai sweet rice, this pleasantly chewy grain adds beautiful color and exotic flavor to any dish. Often used as a dessert rice, Purple Sticky Rice has a nuttier flavor than white sticky rice. This darkly colored rice is sometimes called “Black Sticky Rice.
It is mild and versatile, the rice is ideal in savory side dishes and salads. In its native Thailand this rice is often cooked with coconut milk and served as a dessert.
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.
