A delicious warm famous Thai dessert, rich in coconut milk sweetened with palm sugar. The ultimate comfort food for a Thai :-)


  • 14 1/2 fl oz. canned coconut milk
  • 1 lbs. pumpkin
  • 4 tbs. coconut sugar


Cut the pumpkin into small French fry size pieces (I use Thai pumpkins, they are very small, roughly the size of a small squash). Soak the pumpkin in water for a few minutes to rid of sap. Heat coconut milk in a sauce pan until hot, then add the pumpkin. When it is almost cooked, add the sugar.
