Tender Coconut Kheer/Elaneer Payasam

Tender coconut is a wholesome and nutritious drink, prefect drink while its too hot and a thirsty quencher.The water of a tender coconut is liquid endosperm. It is a mild sweet with aerated feel when cut fresh. Depending on the size a tender coconut could contain the liquid in the range of 300 to 1,000 ml.The meat in a young coconut is softer and more gelatinous than a mature coconut, that it is sometimes known as coconut jelly. When the coconut has ripened and the outer husk has turned brown, a few months later, it will fall from the palm of its own accord. At that time the endosperm has thickened and hardened, while the coconut water has become somewhat bitter..This tender coconut kheer is such a delicious, easy and kheer tastes marvellous i prepared to celebrate today's Saraswathi Pooja, wat all u need is just heat the coconut milk and coconut water with sweetened condensed milk with tender coconut pieces with cardamom powder, thats all...i prepared this kheer just by heating coconut water, coconut milk and condensed milk in microwave oven of 5minutes...




1cup Coconut milk( i used tinned)
1cup Coconut water (i used frozen)
1/2cup Sweetened condensed milk
1/2cup Tender coconut flesh(i used frozen)
1tsp Cardamom powder
Nuts if u desire

Take a microwave safe bowl, add the coconut milk, coconut water, sweetened condensed milk and heat in microwave oven for 5 minutes medium, give a stir, add immediately chopped tender coconut flesh and cardamom powder..add nuts if u desire, i didnt add any nuts and we just loved it..

Serve warm or chilled..

I heard about this payasam from my mother-in-law. I would like to try them. I am not sure if we get the frozen coconut water here and the fresh tender coconut water smells bad. I am going to look in the frozen section when I go to the Asian market next time.

One of classic kongu dessert, did frozen elaneer tasted good? I never seen elaneer in frozen section :(

Veggie Belly said... Reply To This Comment

I love a good rasam, but never had one with kollu. And that payasam looks incredible. Ive also had a similar elaneer pudding with coconut water, pulp, condensed milk and gelatin/agar agar.

@Cham frozen coconut water tastes good but not like the fresh one, but the coconut milk changed the taste and both together works out wonder..
