For the coconut milk:

  • 2 cups grated fresh coconut
  • 2 cups water

For the slurry:

  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk, as prepared above

For the pudding:

  • Coconut milk, as prepared above
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Oil, for greasing the mould
  • Cornflour slurry, as prepared above
  • Sliced nuts, for garnish


  1. In a blender jar add the grated coconut and water. Blend to a fine puree. Strain out the coconut milk. (You can use the pulp as a stuffing in parathas or making sweets. Alternatively, you can dry the pulp and then grind it for use in cookies, cakes etc.)
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cornflour and 1/4 cup coconut milk. Stir to make a smooth slurry. Set aside.
  3. To the remaining coconut milk, add sugar and stir until it dissolves completely.
  4. Keep a pan on medium heat. Add in the sweetened coconut milk, cardamom powder and salt. Stir to mix well and let the coconut milk come to a boil. Sir a few times in between.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and add the cornflour slurry (stir the slurry before adding). Keep stirring as you add the slurry.
  6. Cook the coconut milk until it thickens, keeping its consistency pourable. Refer to the video below for guidance regarding proper consistency. This took about 3 minutes for us.
  7. Transfer the mixture to a oil-greased bowl and let it cool down.
  8. Keep the coconut milk mixture in the fridge for a few hours. Remove when well set.
  9. Coconut pudding is ready. Demould it, garnish with some nuts and serve.
