Thai Lao Sweet Corn Wrap Dessert
Happy Valentines Day! I want to honour my parents today because "love is in the air". I am very blessed to have parents who build their love on honour and respect. I don't have a memory of my parents fighting nor raising their voices. My parents are like 2 halves who make up one whole. When they are together, they are complete and at home. As I am a product of their love, my work on Thai & Lao Food is a product of their love for me. Happy Valentines Day!
This corn wrap dessert is also known as "khao dome sa-lee". I've mentioned banana leaves and how you can make khao dome (coconut sticky rice in banana leaves). This dessert is very similar but wrapped in corn leaves. You can use banana leaves if you run out of corn leaves.
Dessert Recipe: Thai Lao Sweet Corn Wrap Dessert
