It’s still dark when I woke up in the morning. The air was really chilly, too, because last night we left the windows opened. I went to the kitchen and put a pot of water on the stove. We still don’t have water heater, you know, so I need to boil some water for Yaseen

Steamed Rice Balls with Coconut

I always wonder why we called coconut grater “Kra Tai Khood Ma Praw” in Thai. It basically means a rabbit for grating coconut. I couldn’t find any connection between coconuts and rabbits whatsoever. And rabbits don’t eat coconut, as far as I know. Anyway, in Asian households, we cook with coconut a lot. Coconut is used

Thai Fried Sweet Potato

I first tasted Lays potato chips in middle school. It’s not like I didn’t eat snacks when I was younger. I ate a lot actually. They’re just not in the glossy packages and sold in supermarkets. I bought my snacks from hawkers and street stalls. These snacks were produce-driven food. They’re seasonal, fresh and hot.

Thai Sweet 6

I’m not really a sweet tooth kind of person. I can live without chocolate, but I can’t live without french fries. When I was a kid, I spent most of my allowances on meatballs on the street while my sister spent it on sweet. Though I am not crazy about sweet, there are some treats

When I was a kid, though summer was a season we hated, it was the most anticipated season of the year. Why? It’s not only a long waited school vacation, but it is also the season where tiny food stalls sprouted in every corners like wild mushroom of first rain. Like a universal knowledge, kids +

Thai Sweet Rice Balls in Coconut Cream Syrup

I have never eaten a bad rice dumpling and I believe, there’s no such thing as a bad rice dumpling. It’s so simple and a five years old would probably perfectly execute the warm and sweet pot of Thai rice dumpling at first try. I am not kidding, we grew up cooking this dish every

Salim- Thai Colorful Vermicelli Dessert

Winter swept the cold breeze through my window every morning. We wished to stay warmed in the bed as much as we could, but the busy schedule of a day ahead dragged me out of the warm blanket. Rice soup is always the idea breakfast this season, the comforting and warmness dispersed from the stove

Pandan, Durian, Coffee and Milk Toffees

Don’t you feel young and innocent unwrapping colorful toffees minding the rustling sound of the crinkling wrappers isolating you in the toothsome fantasy? Stuffing the mouthfuls of chewy sticky candies on both cheeks, we open more sugary bites while working on melting the load of sweet in our mouths. These milk toffees, pandan leaves flavour especially,

Thai Banana Fritter

Banana fritters (Kluay Kaek) is an ultimate Thai street sweet snack. The usual scenes of the women selling and deep frying this crunchy treat are the common sights on the busy footpaths or street markets in Thailand. It is quite fascinating how these ladies manage to cook these delicious bananas on spot and sell them

For Thai dessert, coconut always plays an important role in creating a lovely creamy texture and beautiful flavour. Sugar and coconut can do the magic with simple technique. Coconut meat is high in fiber and healthy essential oil that is really good for health. It is a nutritious alternative snack and treats. Candied Coconut Chip is very
