Everybody has they own personal choice and appearance. When I come to my kitchen, with tools and ingredients I always like to prepare my dishes for colour, flavour and texture. For me these are my main aims. When making “Mango Sticky Rice” I used low GI 100% pure Sri Lankan Kithul jaggery or 100% pure coconut jaggery. but I used today for this recipe dark brown sugar. You can use what you would like to suit you. Raw sugar, or rapadura (panela, muscavado, sucanat ) sugar or white or light brown sugar for this recipe.
