Tender Coconut Pudding

A new post again and this time it's my new favorite dessert.. Tender Coconut Pudding!

Recently,I stumbled on few recipes of this pudding,so thought of giving it a try.
I did this the way my family would love. We love puddings but they should not have an overpowering sugary taste to it. So I made this pudding very mild in sweetness,as I wanted to highlight the taste of tender coconut in this more than sugary punch on your taste buds.
But you can go ahead and add more additions of condensed milk or sugar and enjoy!

This is my second attempt to make this pudding. Actually the first attempt was quite hilarious. I was at my mom's place that time and my sister was there too.So I thought of giving this pudding a try.
The pudding was so stubborn that didn't agree to set and finally we had to finish it like an ice cream!
I had used China Grass powdered at that time. So this time I used Agar Agar strips. I guess it should work perfectly with china grass too but may be my quantity calculations did not work out then!

Try this recipe and enjoy this coconut fruit delicacy at home!
