Ta Ko, you've seen before in a different form here. Here is a variation in bi-tua leaves with jack fruit (shown at the back in the photograph). Ta Ko (also known as Tahko) is a traditional Thai dessert with a sweet layer and a salty topping.
200 gms Mung Bean Flour
800 ml Water
700 gms Sugar
100 gms Rice Flour
880 ml Coconut Milk
200 gms Jack Fruit (Chopped)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
Bi Tua Leaves (For Wrapping)
1. Use the bi tua leaves and make little trays (gar tong), you will find it easier if you use a stapler to do this.
2. Mix the mung bean flour with the water in a saucepan.
3. Heat slowly, stirring continuously until the flour has cooked, thickened and gone clear. This can take 25-30 minutes.
4. When it's nearly cooked, add 500 gms sugar and stir until it is dissolved.
5. Stir in the chopped jack fruit.
6. Fill the bi tua trays half full with the mixture and leave to cool.
7. In a saucepan, mix the rice flour, coconut milk, salt, and remaining sugar. Stir slowly over the heat until the flour has cooked through and the sugar dissolved and the mixture is thick.
8. Spoon this mixture onto the top of the earlier layer.
9. Leave to cool and serve.
