I love this dessert very much and want to know how to make Kanom Sod Sai for a very long time but could not find the recipe anywhere. I was wondering if you can provide me with the recipe or direct me to a website where they do give recipe to this dessert.

Thank you so much in advance.

Oh my gosh!!! I have been craving this dessert ever since traveling to Thailand five years ago. It is SOOOOOO good! I remember I had asked someone what it was called and they said Kanom Tien Sai Sai. Thanks so much for sharing.

@Lisa: Kanom Tien Sai Sai is a different dessert, although it is similar in some ways. Personally, I think Kanom Sod Sai is even mooore delicious :-) Might write about Kanom Tien Sai Sai soon also, thanks for commenting :-)
