Hua Hin, Thailand. Over two hundred years ago, the courtiers of King Rama II were introduced to a uniquely Petchburi treat, a rice dish specially created to be enjoyed during the summer months. The palace denizens were greatly impressed by its cooling qualities – for Khao Chae, as it is known in Thai, means chilled rice.
This unique dish is eaten cold with iced water, accompanied by the scent of jasmine flowers and candle fumes. ‘Khao Niao Mamuang’ is the kingdom’s most cele brated dessert and is at its irresistible best during the hottest months of the year.
The popularity of the dish has spread far and wide beyond the country’s borders, with the mango’s sweetness perfectly complementing glutinous rice that has been blended with coconut milk and palm sugar.
