I made a half portion of this recipe today, but have decided not to give a rating because I don't know how it is supposed to come out. The mixture separated at the double-boiler stage, resulting in a texture quite different from what I would expect from a custard. I really don't know what custard is like in Thailand, however. I have eaten Thai coconut candies that had a similar flavor to this, which makes me feel that perhaps it turned out the way it should. I did think it was very sweet. Thank you for an interesting experience.
