Steung Traeng Morning Market [31]Krolan is a sticky rice mixed with coconut and beans and cooked in bamboo tubes. Krolan is cooked with a little portion of salt and usually sweet, and can keep for up to three days.  This krolan helps me from starving when I lost in jungle in Mondulkiri in my next travel.  I will tell you later

Steung Traeng seems to be a small town with a big market and lovely riverfront.  The town market serves the need for whole province.

The morning part of the market is open air and sells fresh produce including fish, vegetables, spices etc

Clothes, gold, mobile phones, shoes, pots, kitchen utensils, ice etc also sold there.

    Dear Lois.
    Oh you were from Solo…..Krolan is not difficult to open as the outer part of bamboo have been removed. It is difference from our “lemang” as krolan includes red bean but the preparation almost the same; to grill it!!

    Hi Neeny Tyo
    Trying or tasting of the local foods in the rural area is really awesome.
    Thanks for your good words

    Interesting photos. The crowded market with fresh vegetables reminds me of my childhood in 1950s till mid 60s….. my school was very close to a market in Solo, Central Java.

    Sticky rice in bamboo tubes? At first, I thought she was selling sugarcane…..:) It must have been hard to split the tube.

    Wow that rice sounds, and looks, delicious! I cant’ wait to hear the story. Loved all the fish too, they looked delicious as well. Also, the baskets….it looks so populated as I live in a rural area you would not see that many people usually…I love foods from other countries and especially cooked in banana leaves and the such, yum.
