The magic of this Thai Vietnamese Indonesian Dessert lies in its ingredients – a colorful medley of tropical fruits and traditional elements. We start with sticky rice soaked overnight to achieve the perfect texture. Coconut milk and palm sugar lend a creamy sweetness while a pinch of salt balances the flavors beautifully. The stars of our Exotic Fruit Sticky Rice Dessert are ripe mangoes, jackfruit slices, lychee halves, rambutan pieces and diced dragon fruit – each contributing their unique tastes and textures to this Tropical Fruit Coconut Milk Dessert. Toasted sesame seeds add a delightful crunch while pandan leaves infuse an aromatic essence into the dish. Tapioca pearls bring in an interesting chewiness while watermelon cubes offer refreshing bursts of juiciness. Finally, toasted shredded coconut adds another layer of flavor and texture while finely shredded  lime leaves serve as an aromatic garnish.
