Sankhya lapov

Sankhya lapov is usually used as a dessert at the restaurants in Cambodian. The dish consists of coconut custard steam-baked in a pumpkin (in Khmer, “lapov” refers to pumpkin). The Cambodian makes the flan from coconut milk and uses it to fill the interior of the pumpkin.  If order sankhya lapov, tourists will be served a pumpkin entirely. This dish can also be found in Thailand, where it’s called “sangkhaya fak thong”, and in Laos with the name “sangkhaya maryu”.
