Sweets of ~ Laos & Cambodia
Nom Kroch: literary means orange cake or orange ball. Made of sticky rice, mung bean, shredded coconut and sesame. This is my childhood memory. When I was a little girl, my mother and I used to get up every morning at 5am to make it. Around 7am, I brought nom kroch to the market everyday. Cambodian children love nom kroch. It’s quick grab snack.
(Husband Killers) - This is a Cambodian snack composed of glutinous rice flour, palm sugar and grated coconut. The story is....once there was a newly wed couple. One morning husband went to work and the wife decided to make a treat for her hubby. He quickly popped one in his mouth but it was still too hot and he ate too fast he started choking. However, he wanted look "manly" in front of his new wife so he acted like nothing happened and tried to swallow it down....sadly he didn't make it. :O

Sihanoukville, Cambodia: I don't know what this Cambodian dessert is called, but it's like a gelatin wrap with mung beans and nuts on top. This is very tasty.
