His name looks almost like a cartoon from a comic, actually the Tup Tim Grob it's a delicious Thai dessert. It literally means "crunchy rubies" and it is basically water chestnuts that are cooked and served in a syrup of water, sugar and coconut milk. The final touch remains the ice cubes, useful for making the dessert more refreshing, especially in hot weather.

How to do the Tup Tim Grob
Prepare the syrup by dissolving the sugar in water on the fire and boiling for 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, in another saucepan, boil the 250 ml of water and cook the chestnuts for 20 minutes.
I used water chestnuts already cut and colored, if you want to use the larger and lighter ones then cut them first and add half a teaspoon of red food coloring to the water.
Drain the chestnuts and pass them in the flour, turning them over, gently, several times.
Now cook them in 1 liter of boiling water until they rise to the surface.
Once raised, transfer them to a bowl of cold water and jackfruit.
Move the chestnuts into individual bowls and add the syrup to which you have added the coconut milk.
Finally put some ice cubes.
Your Tup Tim Grob is ready to be served.
