Easy Home-Made Milkmaid Peda

It’s always refreshing to eat this when having Thai cuisine. I learned the recipe for the first time when I visited Thailand.

Serve it fresh as a wholesome meal or as a side dish to any Thai entrée.
It is a fantastic salad, but it needs full attention while making. Once it all comes together, the sweet and sour taste will blow your mind away.
