I have not met a single person so far that doesn’t like this pudding. Its such a simple recipe to put together and always a hit at get-together-parties. This is a no fuss dessert that’s so classy and can be made in less than 30 minutes if you have all the ingredients available. When buying tender coconut, ask the coconut seller to give young tender coconuts that has coconut meat inside. Many tender coconuts just have water. If you are not equipped at home with machete for breaking coconuts, ask the shop keeper to break and give it to you. You can carry a bottle with you so that you can collect the tender coconut water. You will need at-least 3 tender coconuts for this recipe.

Note: The condensed milk in itself is sweet. I have not added any extra sugar in this recipe.

Here is how to do tender coconut pudding / elaneer pudding:

Take a bowl and add in a can of condensed milk and milk cream. I usually use Amul cream as that is what is widely available here in India.

Add in a cup of fresh coconut milk.
(For fresh coconut milk, run half a cup of fresh coconut with one cup of water in the mixie until smooth. Strain and use in the recipe.)
Also add a cup of full fat cows milk and a teaspoon of real vanilla extract. Do not use imitation vanilla or vanilla essence. The flavour of vanilla essence (artificial) is very over powering. Just omit it if you dont have real vanilla extract.

Whisk all the ingredients well to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil. When it comes to a mere boil, remove from heat and set aside.

Soak 5 grams of agar agar (china grass) in a cup of water for 5 minutes.

Note: I have used 5 grams of china grass for the pudding. This yields in a semi solid pudding that is luscious. We like it like that at home. If you want a fully set molded pudding, use up-to 10 grams china grass.

A note on CHINA GRASS / AGAR AGAR

China Grass sets at room temperature. So boil it only after getting everything ready. You cannot prepare this in advance and keep it for use later. Once you boil the china grass, it needs to be added to the pudding mixture immediately.

Bring it to a boil and let it simmer till the china grass is melted. Strain using a big holed strainer and add to the pudding mixture.

Remove the coconut meat (It looks like jelly) from the inside of tender coconut. We need about half a cup of tender coconut meat. I have used about three tender coconuts today to get the required amount of coconut meat. Chop into small pieces.

    Hi Suguna. I just want to tell you that is recipe is a major hit. I have made it N number of times since the last 2 years for potlucks , family parties, office lunches and ppl have begged me for more!! Thank you so much! 😁 I use Coconut milk from a tetra pack and amuls 30% fat variant of cream. So it is much heavier and creamier

  2. How does this compare to elaneer mousse from the restaurant upsouth? Been looking for that recipe for a while. Also what happens if you dissolve agar agar/gelatin in the elaneer itself instead of water?

  3. Hi kannamma I have a doubt….when we heat the condensed milk mixture or when adding warm agar agar mixture will not curdle? I haven’t tried pudding at home..,pl suggest. Your pudding looking delicious and can’t wait to try at home…
