Latieng is a traditional cuisine of Thailand and a project of the King of Thailand. It’s shrimp stuffing in egg net or shrimp & pork mince stuffing in egg net. Of course one can do other stuffing but these are the traditional ones. I learnt the technique from watching in YouTube and loved the snack or appetiser so much. Of course it can be eaten any time of the day. I used shrimp #MadhubishsKitchen
