Yellow Gelatinous rice with shrimp topping

 There are many varieties of Thai dessert that combine both salty and sweet in one dish.


 And it's the kind of dessert that I love to eat, as each bite is full of taste, and when you start eating, it's not easy to stop. If you go to the market in Thailand, you will find many kinds (and many colour) of Khao Niao and yes with many kinds of topping too. Yellow Gelatinous rice or Khao Niao Leung is one kind of Khao Niao Mun (sweetened Gelatinous rice), that we use turmeric to add both colour and fragrance to the rice. It's not only delicious but beautiful too ^^. If you can't find turmeric, or not in the mood of using it, you still can make Khao Niao Mun (sweetened Gelatinous rice), but it will be the white one.
Today I serve my rice with sweet and salty shrimp topping, the lightly sweetness of the rice  goes very well with sweet and salty topping. Both Khao Niao Leung and topping are very easy to make (well, you may not believe me, but you have to try, haha), and you can half the recipe to make less quantity too.

Note: If you want to buy very fragrance (and delicious) Thai Gelatinous Rice you can contact: https://www.facebook.com/duangjairice/ I really recommended this brand.
