Bua loi kai waan [บัวลอยไข่หวาน]


The egg

Yet another tasty Thai dessert. This is called bua loi kai waan [บัวลอยไข่หวาน] which literally means sweet rice flour balls and egg. It is served out of a hot, coconut cream broth being continually stirred in a huge vat. A raw egg is then cracked open and plopped in it and you are ready to eat. The egg gets poached pretty quickly in the hot mixture. This is a really good one but it can’t be very healthy for you.
