Author's Notes

Makes 16 servings. To ensure proper rising and for "smiling" fatt koh (cracked open effect), use molds where the height is greater than the diameter. Choose molds with almost similar top and base diameters. Make sure the palm sugar syrup has cooled down to room temperature before adding it to the mixture to avoid killing the yeast. It is very important not to open the cover during the steaming process. If more water needs to be added into the steamer, just pour in slowly through the side of the cover.
