Kanom Mun ( Steamed Cassava )


Cassava is a root vegetable that is widely used in Thailand in making MSG. (Monosodium glutamate) To see the picture and description, click here.

However, we can make dessert from it. It is very starchy so we just mix it in with a little flour and it's ready to be steamed.

Mix these together in a large bowl :

2 cups of grated Cassava ( about one pack )
1-2 table spoon of topioca flour
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of coconut milk ( get the thick, creamy part of the top of the can )
coconut meat mix in a little bit of salt for garnish
food color ( if like )

Mix these and let sugar dissolve for about 10 minutes. If want to add color, you can add it now.

Lay small cups in a steamer and pour the mixture in each cup and top with coconut meat. Steam for 15 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Garnish with grated coconut meat.
Easy and delicious :).
