When the weather is humid and warm, a small bowl or glass of Lod Chong Nam Kati (Pandan Noodles with Coconut Milk; Nam Varn Khao Lod Chong; ນ້ຳຫວານເຂົ້າລອດຈອໆ; ນ້ຳຫວານເຂົ້າລອດຊ່ອງ) is a good treat for cooling down.

Nam Varn Khao Lod Chong

I also like this dessert after a plate of spicy green papaya salad, string bean salad, cucumber salad, or Khao Poon Nam Kati.

If I have to pick my favorite Lao dessert, Lod Chong Nam Kati or Nam Varn Lod Chong would be at the top of my list.



  1. what is in the recipe for this? How do we make it?

  2. Hi LS,

    It takes a great deal of time and skills to make Lod Chong Nam Kati. I’ve been wanting to learn how to make this but so far has not found anyone to teach me even in Laos. If you can understand Thai, then check out the cooking demonstration on Youtube with Thai chef and try making it yourself. Good luck.

  3. I absolutely love this dessert! It is so good!! Very easy to make if you have the patience to make it!! I love to make it and it is time consuming but all worth it in the end!!!
