Khao Tom after Almsgiving

Khao Tom after Almsgiving

Khao Tom (sticky rice in banana leaf) for breakfast after giving alms to the Buddhist Monks in Vientiane, Laos.

My two aunts made a big batch of Khao Tom to take to their local temple for the Morning Almsgiving. The rest of the portions were given to relatives, neighbors living next door, and some for breakfast. This version of the sticky rice wrapped in banana leaf has ripe banana and black beans. It was a delicious breakfast with extra grated young coconut sprinkled on top of the warm and sweet sticky rice.
