Thais are famous for their mouth watering desserts. The Thai Style Pumpkin with Steamed Egg is another one of these.
Thai Style Pumpkin with Steamed Egg or Sankaya (Thai pumpkin custard) is a Thai-style inside out pumpkin pie in which a lightly sweetened coconut milk and egg custard is steamed inside of a hollowed out pumpkin.
A perfect balance of textures, the steamed egg custard inside shows the influence of the Portuguese on Thai cuisine, who introduced the idea of adding eggs to desserts in the 1600s.
In Thailand, Sankaya is a popular street vendor dessert.
