Khao nom mo keng - Coconut milk flan

Updated: Nov 22, 2020

Khao nom mo keng is a flan often garnished with shallots. The name literally means “soup pot cake”. Very few Lao households had an oven. The cake was baked in an improvised oven consisting of a pan covered with embers.

For 6 persons


300 ml eggs, beaten

300 ml coconut milk

200 g sugar

2 tbsps of rice flour

½ tsp of salt

2 tbsps thinly sliced shallots (optional)


In a large bowl, combine the eggs, coconut milk, flour, sugar and salt.

Transfer to a mold and bake for 1 hour in a preheated oven at 150 ° C. Sprinkle the shallot on the flan after 20 minutes of cooking.
