Hi Noodlepie,

The desserts look interesting. I can't tell you anything about the first one, but it looks like some sort of jelly. What does it taste like?

The second one looks like sung xa hot lu (sp?). It has agar agar jelly and pomegranate seeds. This one is very sweet.

That last one looks the most interesting of all. What is it?

Happy holidays to you and NoodleGirl too!

The first one is grass jelly.
The last one is "ho^.t e'" (semame seed liked).
In Southeast myth, there are food with different "temp.", for example: those hot food are watermelon, chili, ginger, meat, egg, coffee .. and cool food are seafood, jelly, ballut, sugarcane juice ... and "ho^.t e'" belongs to cool food. So in the summer, "ho^.t e'", "mia' dda'", or "nu+o+'c ddo^~ dden" are the referable choice.

i think the last one is a variety of basil seeds that puffs up in water. i'm surprised it isn't sold blended with the spongey brown stuff, another plant matter that blooms in water. i'm guessing it's because the green syrup looks more appealing than the brown fluff?

Ah~ really miss these things. Haven't seen them for a long time. Gee...CapriR said that's a grass jelly, but the grass in Malaysia is black. Interesting. 2nd one is agar-agar (jelly). And the 3rd one we called 'frog's egg' in my hometown. :)

wow. great photos =)

Wateverit is.. it sure looks interesting.. :) And if you eat it .. i will try it too.. ;) and stop being a chicken.. me i mean... heh!! ;)

The last one is indeed a varietal of Basil seeds and they puff up when immersed in water. In India we call them Tukmaria and are used in a Chendol like dessert called Falooda.
Great Pics NoodlePie.

Thx all for your input, a great help to all us clueless. Now I know what I'm eating:) I particularly love the frog's spawn motif for the last one - spot on I'd say.

Hey guys! i was just wondering if anyone reads this if you could possibly email me some simple recipes for some vietnamese desserts!!

i would appreciate it so much . thanks tanya

In life one has to try new things.
