Thus, continuing from the previous article on “Mouth-Watering Thai Desserts” this text will consciousness on flour utilized in Thai desserts. Taken collectively, those two articles supply a fuller photo of Thai cakes. The following are the common flours used in Thai cakes: sticky rice flour, rice flour, cassava starch, corn starch, wheat flour, arrowroot starch, and mung bean flour.
