“What is the name of this flower-vegetable?”
It started with an innocent question from my eldest sister, after her visit to Or Tor Kor market recently. Read here if you missed my earlier post.
I was introduced to prettylicious edible flowers in Thailand by my why-are-you-Thai bf, and have never looked back since then.
#1 Cowslip creeper flower, aka Dok ka jon (ดอกขจรน) – my no 1 favorite, and is also a dish I can easily whip up at home. I have even brought these flower vegetables, and brought it back to Malaysia as souvenir. Yeah, it makes an interesting not-your-typical-souvenir to bring home, and cheap too (20 baht+)!
So here you go, big sister, the flowers you asked and also few others:
#3 Sesbania flower, aka Dok sano (ดอกโสน)
#4 Humming bird Sesban Agasta flower, aka Dok kae (ดอกแค)
Happy trying and eat like a local!
