Sweet Rice | Vietnam

Sweet Rice | Vietnam

The tropical colored sticky rice sold by this street vendor was served with a variety of toppings and offered in many different colors.  Each dessert is made with glutinous rice not that it contains gluten, but is glue-like or sticky in texture, and beans.  The dessert can be served hot or cold, we had it hot from this vendor and enjoyed the texture of the sticky rice and black eyed peas topped with sugar, coconut and sesame seeds.  Although we didn’t try all the flavors we found out that the green rice is flavored with pandan leaf extract, which also brings the green color.  The purple rice is made with the magenta plant to bring out the vivid color you see.  Definitely worth a try for only 75 cents.
