Cooking is an expression of the land where you are and the culture of that place – Wolfgang Puck.
Kralan, a cheap Cambodian delicious snack, consists of sticky rice cooked in coconut milk black eyed peas or bean stuffed in bamboo. Legend has it that the soldiers of the Angkor kings would take kralan on their journeys for rations, and it is popular as an offering to monks on their alms rounds or at festivals and celebrations. The dish is famous all over the Kingdom and Cambodians argue endlessly about which village makes the tastiest kralan.
The cooking of Kralan is an extensive and charcoal or wood devouring operation.
