Mango Sweet Rice



So, sweet rice for dessert is not my favorite, but I will say that I did try this mango sweet rice and it was actually really good. Everyone else loooooved it. So maybe you’ll like it too. Although it’s not as easy as throwing a brownie mix in the oven, this dessert recipe really isn’t all that complicated. In my opinion, it’s always hard to think up a yummy dessert with Asian cuisine because you don’t want to ruin all of the beautiful flavors from a dish with a heavy chocolate dessert or something.  This mango sweet rice turned out perfect and it really does the trick! It’s a perfect way to end a great meal.

How Can You Tell If A Mango Is Ripe?

A ripe mango will give slightly, so you know the inside flesh is soft and ripe.


Are Mangos Good For You?

What Kind Of Rice Is Sticky Rice?
