Khao Lam – Thai/Khmer dessert

Thai foodThis dish, I discovered during the Phuket Vegetarian Festival. The dish is called khao lam (ข้าวหลาม) and is made of sticky rice, red beans, coconut as well as coconut cream, sugar, eggs and red beans. The whole thing is then roasted in a specially-prepared bamboo tube. They either use white or dark purple rice. This dish is also known in Cambodia where it is called kralan and mainly served at the Khmer as well as at the Chinese new year. This dish is extremely filling, so make sure you don’t eat before going to a good restaurant or enjoying another dish.
