Thai Food Lovers

Literally translated, "Tub Tim" means "Ruby" and "Grob" means "Crunchy" ... The influence of this dessert is supposed to be from pomegranate seeds.

Most people will use either jicama or water chestnuts to get that effect

I love this thai dessert as it can be so refreshing when you have it with your friends on a hot day!
