How about an easy Thai dessert? Today, I’d like to present to you the recipe for sweetened millet with coconut milk. This dessert is called ‘luk dueai peak’ (ลูกเดือย) in Thai. You can also find this treat in Thai local markets where it is often sold. This dessert can be served hot or cold.
Millet with Coconut Milk
Here is what you need to prepare 5 portions:
- 100g millet (soak the millet for about 4-6 hours)
- 1/2 cup of taro
- 1/8 cup of arrowroot flour
- 1/8 cup of tapioca flour
- 3 cups of water
- 100g sugar (or less, as to taste)
- 1 cup of coconut cream
- 1/2 TSP rice flour
- 1/2 TSP salt
Take a pot and put in the coconut cream, salt and rice flour. Cook on a low heat and stir until the flour and salt dissolve. Take another pot and let the millet simmer on a low to medium heat for around 20-30 minutes. Then add the taro and let it simmer for 3-4 minutes. Now add the sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Then mix the tapioca and arrowroot flour with water (you will need about 1/2 cup of water). Add this flour mixture into the pot with the cooked millet. Stirr until the mixture thickens. Well, you’re ready to serve! Put the sweetened millet in a bowl and pour some coconut cream on top 🙂
