Dog-Kae – Agati, Humming Bird Tree – ดอกแค

This is a relatively big, white, flat, long, think bean-like vegetable. Its appearance is flower-like and it grows from a small soft wood tree, commonly seen in South East Asia and South Asia (Sesbania Grandiflora). We call them in Thai ดอกแค or (Dog-Kae) and use them in various dishes across the country. Most commonly, we will boil them in water for a short time and eat them with Chili Sauce or add them in sour Soup or deep fry. Their taste is slightly bitter and sweet as the after taste. On the country side we can grow Dog-kae easily and we will plant them by the fence and share their flowers with the neighbors. They are also available in every market or supermarket.
