Author Notes: A recipe based on an original by Sibpan Sonakul, she suggests that other fruits such as rambutans, mangosteens and lansad, can also be use used instead of rose petals. This recipe demonstrates that Thai cookery is not bound by particular ingredients, in fact a large variety of seasonal ingredients and endless combinations may be used successfully in a given dish. Salads should be dressed at the very last minute just before serving, to preserve the integrity of each ingredient.siamesecooking
