Rubies of Thailand, a deliciously sweet Thai dessert made with water chestnuts and coconut milk.
This dessert is one of the most famous desserts of Thailand. It is called “Rubies of Thailand” because rubies can be found in Thailand and that is why it is generally served in this beautiful red color. Its name in Thai language is Tab Tim Grob or ทับทิมกรอบ.
Fun and very easy to make, this dessert combines different textures: gummy outside, crispy inside, and the coconut milk is velvety sweet. When it is available on the menu, I always choose this dessert, it is perfect to end a hot and spicy Thai meal on a sweet note.
