Khanom Bueng, a Thai dessert that is rather difficult to prepare, contains a variety of ingredients, such as flour, and various toppings. The main ingredients, however, are ground green gram or mung bean flour - a vegetable source of protein. A shredded shrimp topping provides high-quality protein; the coconut milk, mixed with mineral salt and containing protein and vitamins, provides energy and fat; and a sweet topping is a source of protein derived from eggs, together with amino acids and valuable mincrals. Overall, Khanom Bueng is a rich source of protein from both shrimp and eggs, which in turn is converted into energy, as is the carbohydrate and fat from coconut, coconut milk and sugar. The end result is a delicious and mouth-watering dish.
