Mango with sticky rice is a sweet south east asian invention. It is composed of Ripe yellow Mango with glutinous sticky rice and sometimes flavored with brown sugar or coconut milk. I don't really know which country started it but it is the BEST DESSERT ever! Here in The Philippines it's called "Suman sa Lihiya at Mangga" and in Thailand, it is called "Khao Niaw Ma Muang" Look at the Pictures here for the similarities of Both! But however, as I said before, Philippine Carabao Mangoes are aknowledged by the Guiness Book of World Records as the Wolrd's Sweetest and Juiciest Mango.
