Red Rice Cakes ( Kao Nhiew Dang )


Not so much red as brown! These sticky rice sweet cakes are made into paper cups and eaten as a dessert. If you can't get hold of the coconut sugar you can substitute extra brown sugar, but it's not as good.

100 gms Brown Sugar
50 gms Coconut Sugar
200 ml Coconut Milk
100 ml Water
2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds
