Luk Chup is one of the most recognisable traditional Thai dessert to many Thai people and foreigners, because of its attractive appearance. It is traditionally seen in a miniature version of tropical fruits. The meaning of ‘loveliness’ made these miniature fruits suitable as a gifts for children from adults in Thai culture. There are plenty of room for creativity in how to present them, it has become popular in younger Thai desserts makers exactly because they can be designed in so many forms, not only fruits but animals or cartoons.
Like most of other Thai desserts, it requires skill and love to make. It’s a slow process in making them as each step in the process of making Lukchup defines each character. From shaping the mung bean paste, then painting with food colouring, and finally coating with agar agar jelly for 3-5 times. From these reasons, it makes every piece unique, and meaningful.
Luk Chup is a Thai dessert that is created from mung bean, this was originally a recipe from Portugal. In the Portuguese recipe they used almonds however there was an absence of almonds in Thailand so were replaced by mung beans.
In the olden days(dated back in Ayutthaya Era, 14th Century), Luk Chup was created only for kings, royal families and people in the palace. However, nowadays it can be bought in general dessert shops in Thailand.
One of the key ingredients of Luk Chup is the mung bean. The mung bean is native to India and has been cultivated in China and most of Asia. The mung bean possesses many health benefits. Mung beans contain enzymes, nutrients and antioxidants which are essential for maintaining good health. Mung beans are good for the health of the eyes, hair, nails and liver. Mung beans also enhance blood circulation and are loaded with a high amount of fibre and are low in calories. Mung beans are used in traditional Chinese medicine for therapeutic uses e.g., to detoxify the body and eliminate heat.
