Another Tasty Dessert From Around The World (Fridays, although I’m doing it on Saturday this week)

Hello fellow food lovers! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at another delicious dessert. I hope you guys are hungry, because things are about to get “sweet”!

Pamonha is a very interesting dessert that comes from Brazil. (en.wikipedia.org) It reminds me of a Thai dessert that has Taro and rice. This dessert is essentially a corn husk wrapped dumpling that’s filled with coconut milk, sausage, meat, or pepper. It sounds absolutely delicious!
