White Chaw-Moung and shrimp (Khanom Chaw-Moung Sri-Khaw sai koong)

Khanom Chaw-moung  or Steamed dark indigo flower flour with filling is another Thai dessert.  This dessert not easy to find present.  But for this recipe I didn’t  use any color filling, It is the natural color of the flour used... Because today we find it very difficult indigo flower.  But the lack of color makes the dessert  look clean and tasty.   But if you really want to taste I suggest try to do by yourself  better then out to find from somewhere else.   It’s more difficult to find.    This dessert will consist of 2 parts white is part of the flour and the mincemeat is filling….
