How to make it

  • Mix flour with some water in a big bowl (OK, not THAT big - just a bowl.) and mix it well until you have something that resembles a dough.
  • Make sure dough are sticky to your hands if you touch it. Now start to knead it by adding small amounts of the flour, until the dough transforms into a big blob that you can knead without it sticking to your fingers any longer. Then it's right. Now form little balls of about half an inch from the dough.
  • Now you boil some water and give the little dough balls into it. They will magically float up when they are done. Take them out, drain them, and put them into some boiling coconut milk. Add sugar and a little salt 'till it's just right for your. If you like eggs, you can put them into the still boiling coconut milk whole without stirring so that they are poached and they are ready to serve....ENJOY

    I tasted this at our local thai resto and it has a certain smell and taste which clings to your palate ... an aromatic smell which we're trying to find out ... we think it's an herb but we're not sure if it's basil ... can somebody tell me what it is? thanks! :) BTW, i think they used taro in making the balls ... it's tastier and sweeter as compared to rice ball and a lot more fragrant. What we did was we grated the taro and used that in place of the rice flour.
