About Thai Desserts

Traditional Thai Desserts

Both thong yip and thong yod are Thai desserts that are considered to be traditional, and they are frequently served together. Thong yip are egg yolks that have been molded into the shape of flowers or other designs and have a golden tint. Sugar and glutinous rice flour are the primary ingredients in the preparation of thong yod, which are miniature, spherical dumplings. Both of the sweets are prepared by boiling them in a sugar syrup before being served cold.

During the reign of King Narai the Great, both egg yolks and sugar were introduced to Thai cuisine by the Portuguese, who are also responsible for the widespread use of egg whites. Her full name is Maria Guyomar de Pinha, but she is commonly known as Marie Guimar.  According to legend, Portuguese nuns devised these egg-yolk-based desserts as a way to utilize the egg yolks they had leftover from other recipes.

Auspicious Thai Desserts

It is thought that thong yip and thong yod will bring success and wealth to their owners. The golden hue of the thong yip, which represents prosperity, and the circular shape of the thong yod, which represents fullness, are both indicative of the thong yod. Desserts such as this are frequently provided at celebrations such as weddings, birthdays, and other important events.
