3. After that, add salt. Remove it from the stove. Add scraped young coconut now if you like.

4. Then pour it over the first layer while it’s hot. This will make the two layers stick to each other.

* Flower water

I wrote about the flower water before with lawt chong recipe. I don’t know what I should call it, so I make up this name which is translated from Thai language. Flower water is made of jasmine with water. We soak the flower and leave it over night in sealed container. Too much work, isn’t it? 🙂 You can use jasmine odor as same as pandanus** odor for the smell but only 1 tsp. will be enough.
