ข้าวปลี khaao bplee

Princess Yaovabha Bongsanid’s delicious khaao bplee is a dish of stuffed banana blossom with sour, salty, sweet, and fragrant jasmine fried rice. The rice is fried with tamarind relish, semi-salted fish, amaranth leaves, eggplants and carrots; it is then stuffed into a smoky charred-grilled banana blossom, and baked.
