Stewed Pumpkin in Coconut Cream

stewed fruit is a popular dessert in Thailand. Use the firm-textured Japanese kabocha pampkin for this dish, if you can. bananas and melons can also be prepared in this way and you can oven stew sweetcorn kernels or pulses such as mung beans and black beans in coconut milk.
Any pumpkin can be used for this dish, as long as it has a firm texture. Jamaican or New Zealand varieties both make good alternatives to kabocha pumpkin.
