Ilaneer/Tender Coconut Pudding

Being born and broughtup in Kerala, Coconut is the most important part of my food from childhood.My mom,grandma and now MIL, add coconut to pretty much everything they are cooking.When Suganya of Tasty Palettes aanounced, this AFAM's fruit as Coconut, i wanted to try something sweet.So here is the simple Ilaneer pudding.




Ingredients

Tender coconut - 1 can (i used the one with water and sugar)
Jelatin - 1 packet (unflavoured)
Honey - 2 tsp
Hot Water - 2 1/2 cups
Cinnamon powder - for garnishing


Method

Take 1 cup of juice from the tender coconut can and keep is aside (this will be substituted for 1 cup cold water for jelatin making).Grind the tender coconut pieces with rest of its juice into a fine paste.In a bowl, put jelatin powder,1 cup juice ,2 1/2 cup of hot water and mix well till jelatin powder dissolves completely.Now add the grinded tender coconut paste.Mix well and pour into nonstick sprayed dish.Refrigerate this for atleast 4 hours, overnight will be very good.For unmolding the pudding, place the dish in a warm water bath.This will help it to unmold without breaking apart.Unmold into a plate and cut into squares.Garnish with powdered cinnamon.

Another option for making this pudding is, adding condensed milk and using fresh tender coconut.This yields much more denser and rich pudding.As i wanted to keep the natural flavour of coconut, i opted for simpler version.

Hi Maheshwari, the pudding looks nice! And it appears to be simple to make. I was wondering if there is any way to make it gelatin-free?
