Kralan

Kralan sold on the roadside in Cambodia
Khao lam with coconut custard

Kralan (Khmer: ក្រឡាន) or khao lam (Thai: ข้าวหลาม, pronounced ; Lao: ເຂົ້າຫລາມ) is a Southeast Asian rice dish made of sticky rice with red beans, sugar, grated coconut and coconut milk roasted in specially-prepared bamboo sections of different diameters and lengths. It can be prepared with white or dark purple (khao niao dam) varieties of glutinous rice. Sometimes described as a "cake", thick khao lam containers may have a filling of coconut custard in the center which is made from coconut cream, egg and sugar.

In Cambodia, kralan cake is often made and eaten at Chinese New Year and Khmer New Year. Thma Krae village in Kratie Province has become well known for making the tastiest kralan.[1]
