Sweet Secret

Made some of the Custard Cream Puff upon request for afternoon gathering. So rather then the usual cream puff that is filled with egg custard, I decide to decorate it with some extra topping to make it more presentable and add on some extra crunch.

I dipped the filled puffs with some dark chocolate coating then decorate with some ground oreo, toasted peanuts bits and chocolate rice. Does these look wonderful compare to the usual cream puff. It's pretty easy, just coat the top with some dark or white chocolate then sprinkle whatever toppings that you prefer.

Em.......after tasting the western tea snacks. Let's get back to this famous Thai-style dessert which is a must HAVE when you visit any part of Thailand. Usually this Sticky Rice dessert is either sever with Mango slices or Durian. And our family prefer Durian compare to Mango. This dessert is done by my Mum, with the recipe provided by me :p and using the Authentic glutinous rice that is air-flown from Bangkok during brother's trip over there.

Ingredients: (serves 2 - 3)
100g Glutinous Rice
80ml Water
4 Tablespoons Of Sugar
200ml Coconut Milk/Cream (non-chilled packet)
1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Tablespoon Cornflour Solution
A Few Seeds Of Durian or 2 Mangoes

1. Soak the glutinous rice in some water that is enough to cover it for about 3 hours.
2. Wash till water is not cloudy and drain away the water.
3. Steam the rice on bamboo steamer for about 30 minutes or more until it is cook through, set aside.
4. In a small saucepan, add in water, coconut milk, salt and sugar.
5. Stir over low heat till sugar dissolves then thicken with cornflour solution. Remove it from heat.
6. Reserve about 1/4 cup of coconut syrup to drizzle on the rice before serving.
7. Pour the rest of the syrup onto the hot glutinous rice, cover and let it soak for about 5 - 8 minutes, remove the cover then stir and mix well.
8. To serve, put a portion of the coconut sticky rice on a plate, followed by a layer of Durian meat or mango slices, drizzle some of the coconut syrup over the top.
