Lao "dok peet" - can anyone tell me what it is?

Foodlexi | Jan 20, 2010 12:40 PM

I took a photograph on a street in Luang Prabang in northern Laos of what looked a bit like safflower - large bowls of dried orange stamens of some kind. I was told that the Lao name was 'dok peet' but I can find no reference to this anywhere. I should like to add this to http://www.whatamieating.com but am not absolutely sure what it is. Can anyone help?
