You can get young (green) coconut practically everywhere in Thailand. Central Thailand is famous for it.


I have been wanting to make this recipe for so long, but I didn't know how much agar to use, so I always guessed and it was too hard to eat. Thank you so much! I'm going to try tomorrow. This site is AMAZING, and I've only read the desserts page (and I've found answers to a lot of things I didn't know).
Excellent job. Thank you.
