Mango sticky rice or commonly called Khao niew Ma Muang is a traditional local recipe very popular in Southeast Asia. This rice dessert sloggy scented here with butterfly pea flowers with its fresh and juicy mango is really great for this season! 🥭

The preparation of this dessert requires to do it the day before, at least, as far as the rice is concerned. The ideal is to let it infuse in a water with butterfly pea flowers all night so that the color is as bright as possible. Otherwise, the preparation time is quite fast and on top of that, very simple! 🦋
