It is a popular food in Thailand and found at street stalls and markets. sakhu sai mu is a dumpling which consists of a flour ball with a pork filling. Most people in Thailand eat sakhu sai mu with khao kriap pak mo. The difference between sakhu sai mu and khao kriap pak mo is that sakhu sai mu is covered with flour batter like a dumping while khao kriap pak mo is wrapped with flour batter. They have the same filling.
