Finally, it’s time to move this site to a self-hosted one. Today is my first day on this self-hosted blog (phew). Theoretically, all of you who have followed me on this blog wordpress.com will be moved along with me; however, once completed, my new self-hosted site won’t be on the Reader anymore. It might be difficult for some of you to check out my future posts. If you don’t want to miss my future posts, you may consider email subscriptions. For that, you will receive email notifications of new posts going forward. Hope to see all of you on my “new” home (with the same name, of course).
My blog will have the same name, which is http://circahappy.com.
For the food, this was a street food in Thailand when I was growing up. Almost everyday when my neighbours & I played on the street after school, an old lady would come by with a food cart and she always had this dessert among other things. It is so easy to make, and it’s (often) enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. Because Summer is right around the corner, I thought you might want something sweet, but low in calories.
P.S. If some of you have done this before, I would not mind getting some advice from you. I am not at all a tech savvy, so this process is a huge headache for me. However, it’s supposed to be so worth it 🙂
Corn & Coconut Thai street food dessert (ข้าวโพดคลุก)
- 2 cups fresh corns (about 4 ears)
- 1 can (15 oz) young coconut meat in syrup, preferably “Aroy-D”
- 2 oz. shredded coconut
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
Separate young coconut meat & syrup, and cut the coconut meat into long and thin slices (not too thin); you will have about 4-5 oz. of young coconut meat. Set aside.
Remove the husks, and place the corn on the grill, and grill for 15 to 20 minutes. Using pastry brush to put syrup on the corn every time you need to turn the corn; turning every 5 minutes, or until kernels are tender when pierced with a paring knife. Remove the kernels.
Mix kernels, young coconut meat, shredded coconut, sugar, and salt in the bowl. Add more sugar if needed, and ta-da…
