Grass Jelly ( Choa Guay )

A gelatin like substance made from a herb that comes in packets and more commonly in tins like the brand in the photograph. It is vegetarian (unlike gelatin), and does not dissolve if you put it into hot liquids. We eat it in hot and cold desserts.

You'll see it sometimes served as part of a breakfast dish for Thai children.
