Khao Niao Mun Sangkhaya story
Since the Roman Empire, “Sangkhaya” has come from Europe. Prior to entering Southeast Asia, Europe was known as the name “Custard.” Many people believed Sangkhaya gained influence from Portugal when they ruled the port city of Malacca in 1511, allowing them to trade with many kingdoms, including Ayutthaya. During the reign of King Narai the Great, many foreigners, including Chinese, Japanese, and Persians, came to trade in the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Mrs. Maria Guyomar de Pinha, the wife of a nobleman of King Narai named Falcon, was present at the time. She had transformed Portuguese desserts by sourcing the best ingredients in Thailand. Many types of desserts that we are familiar with today, such as Thong Yip, Thong Yot, Foi Thong, Khanom Mo Kaeng, and “Sangkhaya,” arose from her idea. The term “Sangkhaya” is derived from the Malay word Kaya or Seri Kaya, which means “rich.” Sangkhaya’s main ingredients are coconut milk, palm sugar, coconut milk, and eggs, all of which are readily available in Southeast Asia. As a result, Sangkhaya is one of the foods that can be found in many countries, but it has a unique appearance and color.
