1/1 Photo of Taro in Sweetened Coconut Milk. (Porc Loy Gaiw)
I first had this dessert on an island in Thailand in 2003. This recipe is from Appon's Thai Food Recipes website. It says to serve it hot, but I personally prefer it chilled as I think the taro has time to soak in the sugar.
My Private Note
