Bua loi is a traditional Thai rice flour dessert. It is often prepared for religious or ritual ceremonies, but it can also be eaten as an everyday dish. Bua loi are often brightly colored with various ingredients (see notes).

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Combine rice flour, mashed taro, and water to make a dough.
  2. Shape the dough into small balls, using additional rice flour to prevent sticking.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the dough balls to the boiling water. They will initially sink but will gradually float to the surface as they cook.
  4. Remove the cooked bua loi from the pot, and drain the water.
  5. Transfer the bua loi to a dish, and serve with coconut milk. This dish is best served hot.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • If you want to make your bua loi more colorful, you can add pumpkin (yellow) or pandan (green).
