Coconut milk is used in a number of dishes in Thai cooking. It gives any dish a sweet flavor and also adds texture and thickness. Tom yum goong is a good example of a dish that uses the sweetness of the milk to counterbalance the spice and lemon flavors in the soup.
Banana blossoms are the edible petals from bananas that can be used for cooking or for eating as a fruit.
Guava fruits, usually 4 to 12 centimeters long, are round or oval depending on the species. They have a pronounced and typical fragrance, similar to lemon rind but less sharp. The outer skin may be rough, often with a bitter taste, or soft and sweet. Varying between species, the skin can be any thickness, is usually green before maturity, but becomes yellow, maroon, or green when ripe. The pulp inside may be sweet or sour and off-white (“white” guavas) to deep pink (“red” guavas). In many countries, guava is eaten raw, typically cut into quarters or eaten like an apple, whereas in other countries it is eaten with a pinch of salt and pepper, cayenne powder or a mix of spices (masala).
Lychees are juicy with a distinctive, slightly acidic fragrance and flavor, comparable to grapes. Fresh lychees keep well, offering perhaps better-than-fresh quality after a few weeks of storage. They turn brown, which sometimes indicates increased sweetness.
