This dessert isn't really dessert. It's like a appetizer and anytime can eat. The taste is just a little sweet and more salty. Great taste with fresh vegetable and more tasty by fresh chilli. :)

Hi Vistor,
Thanks for visiting my blog. Jasmine water is we don't buy and super easy to make. If you cannot find jasmine flowers. You just find some flower nicely smell or rose separate petal and on water (pot of water) and cover this water pot until next day (morning) than you get "Jasmine water" or flower water.
