This Thai dessert uses fresh taro root that is cooked in a sweetened coconut sauce. I like to finish my Thai dinner parties with this.


Serves: 4 

  • 500g fresh taro
  • 2 1/2 cups (750ml) coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup (155g) white sugar
  • 55g palm sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) coconut cream

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Peel the taro and cut into 2cm pieces.
  2. Bring the coconut milk to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Add the taro and simmer until soft.
  3. Add the sugars and salt then cook until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Add the coconut cream and heat through but do not boil. Remove from the heat.
  5. Serve in individual bowls and enjoy.
