This past week I discovered my new favourite dessert. (It’s commonly eaten for breakfast too). It looks slightly unappealing but turns out to be utterly delicious.
At our local night market there is always a queue by the stall selling these, which was my main reason for venturing to try some. They are deep fried donuts (called Patongo in Thai) and Pandan Custard (called sang-ka-yaa in Thai). They are incredibly cheap at 3 Baht per donut and the custard is about 5-10 Baht for a little bag.
The donuts are like ordinary sugar and cinnamon donuts but more crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. The custard gets its green colour from the Pandan leaf and has a similar taste to vanilla, it’s sweet and creamy. Considering they are deep fried and probably contain a lot of sugar I’ll have to limit the number I have.
