Jules's Blurb: Another fantastic recipe for Pumpkin, Thai Sweet Pumpkin Dessert which I simply refer to in the video as Sweet Pumpkin is delicious Thai speciality dessert combining waan (sweet) and jeut (bland).
This Pumpkin Dessert also makes a wonderful addition to a family banquet or it can be simply eaten with Char (Tea) or Coffee like eating a slice of cake
In this Pumpkin recipe we're going to use coconut milk to make a delicious custard filling of Thai pumpkin custard which is a two tone colour due to the use of Bai Toey - Panadus leaves - used in many a Thai dessert. Bai Toey is also great at masking unwanted odours. The sweet is provided by copious amounts of Palm sugar, when finished is Thai Pumpkin Dessert

How to Make Pumpkin Dessert
Two hand sized Pumpkins (one shown)
Fresh Coconut Milk
4 Duck Eggs
1 Chicken Egg
Panadus leaves (or essence)
1/2 ts Salt
Preparation:Cut a square hole around the stem of the Pumpkins and scrape out the seeds and excess flesh leave a shell about 1cm (1/2") thick, rinse and allow to dry
Custard Preparation:Beat all the eggs together in a large bowl (NO BLENDERS)
Add Panadus Leaves and hand crush them in the egg mix for 1-2 minutes (add essence if no leaves)
Now add the palm sugar and salt, continuing the process until the sugar has dissolved
Now add the coconut milk to double the capacity (Amounts will vary depending on the size of Pumpkin) and continue to mix and crush, the leaves will now be looking tatty.
Drain the resulting mix through a muslin cloth/cheese cloth to ensure a smooth mixture
That's the custard mix finished now to cook the Thai Pumpkin Dessert
Fill the pumpkins almost to the brim and place in a vegetable steamer for 20-30 minutes
Test for fully cooked before removing (see Sweet Pumpkin video tutorial)
Allow 10-20 minutes to cool a bit before serving
