Glamour Delicacy for Glamour People??

Hahaha gotcha... its not strictly for glamour people. What I'm talking about is this particular delicacy that is only available at certain location of Koh Samui, Thailand. Its name is Galamea.

The packet came looking like this...

Close up of the Galamea. There are two types of them in the packet, one is topped with sesame seeds and the other is topped with one peanut.

Galamea is similar to its Malaysian cousin Dodol but the texture is entirely different. Dodol's main ingredient are palm sugar, glutinous rice flour and coconut milk. Galamea had a crunchy bite. The sesame seeds Galamea imparts a very fragrant taste which I very much prefered. Wished they have toasted the peanut before pouring the sweet in there. That way will bring out the roasted peanut flavour.

Thanks to Mrs Clown for taking the trouble to bring these Galamea back for us to try whilst on her honeymoon trip to Koh Samui. ;-)
