Look at these Cuties!!!

Wow! Look at them! Aren’t they cute or what??? Every time I look at them, I feel like just taking one and popping in my mouth!!! Do you feel the same?? As a matter of fact, you can! These are edible! Yes! thats right! You can eat them, except for the stem and leaves. They are a kind of Thai snack/sweet, made from Mung beans, I call them Thai Mung bean sweet!

We frequent this Thai restaurant in Harrisburg ever sooo often, that the chef/owner has become a great friend of ours! Ofcourse, she makes some great food too. Anytime we go there, she makes sure she comes out of her busy kitchen and talk to us and also, gives my daughter a special treat. The last time we were there, she gave our little one this snack. She said its made of mung beans and its very healthy too. I was more interested in taking a picture of these little cuties, I wouldn’t let my daughter touch them until we came home and took a picture of it! And, yes, she did get to eat them after that, and we did too, and it tasted delicious! Thought of sharing the picture here! Enjoy!

    Sneha,
    Oh how lovely. They look so cute that I would rather keep them as a piece of decoration than gobble them. Never saw them before. Thanx for sharing.
