Sticky Rice – Sticky rice is the main component of this dish. You cannot replace it with any other variety of rice.
Sticky rice is the staple starch of Thailand and it’s called khao neow (ข้าวเหนียว) in local language. As the name suggest, this rice is extremely sticky and will stick to your fingers once cooked.
You can source this rice from any Asian store near you. These days it’s available in most grocery stores and even online.
Some people steam this rice in a steamer over Pandan leaves, but to make the process easy, I have cooked it in a pan.The end result is exactly similar.
Coconut Milk – Traditionally this dish is made using fresh coconut milk. But you can use canned milk as well. Make sure it is of high quality and have no added ingredients.
Sugar – I used white sugar to make this recipe but you can use brown sugar or even jaggery.
Toppings – Sticky rice is topped with sesame seeds and roasted crushed peanuts.
