No less famous than the two “brothers” above is Jackfruit sticky rice. Like other types of sticky rice Thailand served with fruit, this dish is also prepared simply. After being steamed, the sticky rice will be skillfully stuffed into sweet, golden Thai jackfruit. Then, the chef drizzles on top a little coconut milk, adding steamed green beans or sesame seeds and shredded coconut.

The above three Thai street foods are all considered Thai desserts. A topic that has been hotly discussed by people before regarding how to eat these sticky rice dishes is whether to pour coconut milk on top or not. This was a popular way to eat before, but now depending on the taste of the customer, coconut milk can be reduced, or ignored altogether. In addition to eating each of the above Thai dishes separately, at many restaurants customers will be served a mixture such as mango durian sticky rice or mango jackfruit sticky rice.
