Coconut custard (also referred to as pumpkin-coconut custard) is a dessert dish consisting of a coconut custard steam-baked in a pumpkin or kabocha.

In Cambodia[edit]

Sankhya lapov (សង់ខ្យាល្ពៅ) or lpov sangkya denominates a dessert in Cambodia which is made of pumpkin and coconut custard.[1][2] An easily recognizable characteristic of the dessert is that the flan fills the interior part of the pumpkin and that the pumpkin is often presented in its entirety. Lapov means pumpkin in Khmer.

In Thailand[edit]

The dessert is also known in Thailand where it carries the name sangkhaya fak thong[3] (Thai: สังขยาฟักทอง  [sǎŋkʰajǎː fák tʰɔːŋ]; transcription: săng-khà-yăa fák thong) and in Laos where it is called sangkhaya maryu.
