Tender Coconut Dessert







A very humble dessert with the goodness of tender coconut water, cooked with china grass (agar agar) and served chilled in a jelly form. Very easy and simple method of preparing with just three ingredients - Tender Coconut, sugar and china grass. I got to learn and know about this dessert from my mother in law.













Serves 4
Preparation Time: 30 minutes (soaking time)
Cooking Time: 15 to 20 minutes
Setting time: 2 hours.


Ingredients:

  • 500 ml Tender Coconut water
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup sugar (according to standard measuring cup)
  • Tender coconut pieces
  • 1/5 portion of china grass bunch.


Preparation:

  • Soak 1/5 portion of china grass in 1 and 1/2 cup hot water (not boiling water) for 30 minutes.

  • Collect the tender coconut water into a big jar and pieces separately.


Method:

  1. Boil the soaked china grass along with the water till it is fully dissolved and water looks clear.



2) Then add sugar and tender coconut water and start cooking on low flame till it starts boiling. Remove from heat and let it cool down for 20 minutes.



3) Pour into individual shot glasses or one flat serving dish. 


4) Add tender coconut pieces into each serving glass or dish.
5) Set it in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours.
6) Serve chilled.



Note: For garnish I have used mint leaves, dried cranberry and tender coconut pieces.
