Thais have delicacies that are so irresistibly good! Some taste like what we have in the Philippines, while others are distinctly Thai. Here are a few of these ขนม (khanom) or delicacies that I have taken photos of, but pardon me, I don’t know all their names!
Sweet jellies every child would love!
Those white ones are very similar to our “puto” or rice cake in the Philippines. The colored ones are made out of ground sticky rice– very tasty!
This is called “khanom kluay” . Kluay means banana– it’s probably because of the banana leaves used to wrap them. This delicacy is also made out of sticky rice with grated coconut on top.
Also very similar to our rice cake, only with a deep yellow color
