Until recently, Thai restaurants have not been very innovative with their desserts although there are so many delectable Thai-style sweet and also savory desserts.

We have really enjoyed doing the Thai 3-course meal of our Cuisines of the World journey because the tastes and flavours of Thai cuisine is distinctively different, even from some of the other Asian cuisines like Malaysian and Japanese. Making the tom yum soup jelly was a revelation –  familiar tastes but chilled and in a different texture.

We have decided to present a sweet and savoury dessert to end of 3-course Thai meal:

Day 19: Dessert – Mango rice pudding

This is a relatively easy and tasty dessert to make because there is only minimal cooking of the rice.

This rice pudding is always a good savoury sweet dessert to contrast with the intense flavours of Thai food.

This is one of our favourite Thai desserts apart from durian rice pudding that many new Thai restaurants in Sydney are offering.

    Oh Yes! I love this mango with sticky rice…but never had one so pretty like yours…beautiful presentation!
    Hope you are having a fantastic week :-)

    This isn`t rice pudding. It is a work of art and I am so going to have to try to make it. Wish me luck!

  4. The first photo had me smiling happy, then I read that it had maple syrup drizzled around it too! Beautiful fresh dessert ready for our Aussie spring :)

  5. Delicious! Clean simple flavours :)

  6. I’ve never had mango rice pudding before – if I have a chance, I’d love to eat your mango rice pudding!! Looks yum!

  7. Yikes! Almost looks like an engineering impossibility! Elegant indeed. And the ingredients look like a delicious combination.

    Durian! Three years living in Bogor, West Java in the mid-eighties and the memory of the pungency of the fruit in the tropical heat has never left me. Never did develop a taste for it. But, the tukans selling steamed rice flour cakes with a sticky centre wrapped in banana leaves – Kue Putuh (?) – memorable!

    Thoroughly enjoying this month of ‘jellied’ madness.

  8. This pudding looks gorgeous and would be perfect for an Aussie summer. I’ll definitely try making it when the weather turns warmer.

  9. Ooh, I like that final pic. Very nicely done!

    Your beautiful mango pudding reminds me I have never made a single sweet dish with mangoes (I keep on transforming them into hot sauces, chutneys etc.). It’s time for a change!

  11. Joanne says:

    Delicious and elegant!

  12. This is the most beautiful mango rice pudding I’ve ever seen.

  13. Beautiful, one of the favorite Thai dessert!
