khao koop

Or as Thais say khao tung is a deep-fried crispy rice cake. Ever heard of it? You can eat it with a (spicy) dipping sauce or as side dish or snack. Sometimes it is topped with palm sugar.

To make them, my mom mixes jasmin rice and glutinous rice (1:1) together with a little bit of water and shapes them round. Then she lets them dry in the sun for a while. When the cakes are reeeaaally dry, you can store them or deep-fry them to eat.

It is a nice alternative to shrimp chips or popcorn. 🙂
