Black sticky rice pudding (ข้าวเหนียวดำเปียก)

What do you have for dessert in Thailand??

This is one of many questions that I have got asked a lot about Thai desserts.
Yes !!! we do have desserts and Thai people love desserts including me. I am not a big fan of desserts but I still have them sometime when I need a bit of something sweet.

When I was a child I was growing up with my relative who had dessert cart where she sold on the street .She made 15-20 types of Thai desserts everyday. I helped her a lot when I was with her and I learned from her by making them.

Thai desserts can be eaten in warm or cold. A lot of Thai desserts contain with coconut cream, palm sugar, white sugar and flour.

This is one of many Thai desserts ” Black sticky rice pudding ”

Recipe ( 4 serves)

½      cup black sticky rice, rinsed once and soaked in water for at least 3 hours or over night.
½      cup glutinous rice (white sticky rice), rinsed once and soaked in water for at least 3 hours.
3½    cup water
1       cup white sugar
1       cup taro, diced 1 cm
1       cup coconut cream
½      tsp salt


-       In a big mixing bowl, add both of stick rices and wash both of sticky rices with water few times then drain.
-       In a saucepan fill 3cups of water and leave on over medium to high heat. Then bring the water to a boil.
