Food Trip Friday 077: From curry to macaroons

My husband loves Khmer curry so much I make it a point to cook it at least once a month. As are most Khmer and Thai curries, coconut milk or cream is the basis of a yummy, creamy curry gravy.

I made some today and while “processing” (milking might be the appropriate word, I’m not sure) the grated coconut flesh, I thought of experimenting with the used flesh instead of just throwing it away.

So anyway, I just settled on making macaroons. So many recipes are found online and I just picked one that is the easiest and with ingredients that are found in my cupboard. Well, so much for the experiment part, tinamad na ako.

With a bit of prayer again to the baking goddess, I put two trays in the oven and after an hour, these came out:

Very rich-tasting, golden macaroons. Yum!

Brown and crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Best of all, it is not too sweet, yey! But you know what, I love the burnt portion most, you know, the bottom part that sticks to the baking paper. I love nibbling that part, hihihi. From now on, no more coconut goes to waste every time I make Khmer curry 🙂

  1. yum, looks very delish 🙂 I love macaroons every time we eat at the Chinese buffet. This is great for my hot coffee in the morning. Dropping some love for FTF, hope that you can return the favor too.
