Khun Nived’s Fak thong sang taya:

Take one small pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata, the only species that can stand the heat in the Chiang Mai valley).

Cut out a slice of the top. Save this slice as a lid.

Scoop out seeds and fibres.

Thoroughly mix 2 duck eggs (or chicken eggs), 0.5 dl of coconut milk and 2 tea spoons of sugar.

Pour the egg mix into the hole, put the pumpkin in a steamer and cover with banana leaves (not the pumpkin lid).

Put the pumpkin lid on the side.

Let it steam for one hour.

Serve with the pumpkin lid.
