Sweet Sticky Rice with Corn: Easy Thai dessert

 With pale blue color, this Thai sweet is very cute ^^.

 Butterfly pea flower 

The color comes from blue Butterfly pea flower (well, there are a lot of them around my house ^^), in Thailand we call it Dok anchan (ดอกอัญชัน), and we use it in many dishes and drink. Actually, the main point of using this flower is its color (it can be use as medicine too). It's easy to get this natural blue food coloring from the flower, plus if you add a bit of acid (vinegar or lemon juice) you will get violet color too. Anyway, for this dish, the main role is only its color, if you don't have this kind of flower, just skip it, there is no problem with the taste at all.
ข้าวเหนียวเปียกข้าวโพด (Khao niao peak khao pod) is one of easy Thai dessert that made from boiled and sweetened sticky rice, sweet corn, young coconut meat, and top with salty coconut milk. The method of making it is straightforward, the only main point is when cooking the rice, don't boil it too much, or it will turn into a paste instead of keeping its shape. As my family don't like too sweet dessert, you can adjust the amount of the sugar to suit your taste.
