(Longan pudding. )
Sweet, succulent fresh longan pulps with tapioca pearls and coconut sauce is delicious Khmer ethnic dessert. Khmer Krom sometime makes longan pudding with large green color tapioca pearl (instead of white) and with pandan extract(instead of pure vanilla extract).
Little round, brownish gold skin color fruit longan is originated from China. The name longan in Chinese means dragon eyes, referring to the resembling of dragon eyes (after it skin removed). Tapioca pearl in Khmer is “pnake umkep” meaning frog eyes. Ancient Sino-Khmer made longan pudding for their children with hope they will have sharp mind, clear vision and good future. :-)
