Recipe: Pumpkin pudding (Bobo La’pov)

This is the most delicious thing I have eaten while here. I had it while visiting one of the shelters for trafficked children. Beyond the taste, think of all the additional nutrients the dessert gives you!

Most of Cambodian desserts are usually made from our garden. This sweet treat is inexpensive and is very delicious.
