LOOK-CHOOP (in Thai)

 

INGREDIENTS

150 gm green beans, washed and soaked overnight

1 ½ cups coconut milk

1 cup sugar

 

For the coating:

1 tablespoon gelatin

2 cups water, with 1 drop of jasmine extract

½ cup sugar

20-30 bamboo sticks, 10cm-12.5cm long, satay sticks or long toothpicks

 

For preparation:

Foam base measuring 15cm x 20cm (holds 20-30 pieces of look choop)

3 small paint brushes

Food colorings: red, yellow, green, and purple

 

PROCEDURE

Boil the green beans until soft then drain thoroughly. Use the same pot to mash the boiled beans with the coconut milk and sugar. Stir over low heat until thoroughly blended, and until dry. Set aside to cool.

 

For the fruit shapes, you can use your hands to shape them into the form of the fruit or vegetable desired such as chilies, papayas, mangoes, oranges and cherries are popular choices. Use the bamboo sticks to lift the fruit pieces and place them on the foam base.

 

Then mix the gelatin, water (with jasmine added) and sugar in a pan. Bring to the boil over low heat. Allow about one third of the water to evaporate so the jelly thickens.

 

Coat the beans, paint with the food coloring so they represent the selected fruit. Leave to dry. Once dried, dip each fruit in the jelly at least three times and leave to dry on the foam base. Finally, sharpen the forms with a small kitchen knife.
