Sunkhaya - thai coconut custard.

Yield: 1 Serving

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Coconut Milk
¾ cup Palm Sugar
½ cup Sugar
4 eaches Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Optional)

Put coconut milk in a medium size bowl. Add all ingredients and whisk lightly until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Note: Traditionally, the mixing is done by hand mixing everything together and crushing in pieces of banana leave, or the leave of an aromatic plant (bai-tey). The leaves are then picked out and discarded. Here, vanilla extract is used in place of the aromatic "bai-tey". The aroma is not the same, but they both will serve to hide the "raw" taste of the eggs. Divide the mixture into suitable containers and steam for approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Suitable container may be simply glass bowls, or hollowed out small pumpkins, or young "green" coconut with the top of the shell removed.
