Lychee and Tender coconut pudding/ Litchi and Tender coconut dessert / Easy recipe

 The fragrance of the lychee fruit is like an exotic perfume and the pulp is really  luscious.

Did you know lychee has been a sought after fruit since long long time .Wiki says in the 1st century fresh lychees were in such demand at the Chinese Imperial Court that a special courier service with fast horses would bring the fresh fruit from Guangdong.  The emperor had the fruit delivered at great expense to the capital.I am not at all surprised because that is how enticing the fruit is!!
So when my crate  bag arrived I tried two recipes .The other one will be coming soon.
As I began peeling the fruit the peel started curling finally turned out  into all these roses u see here.I ended up with a bed of roses. That pic in my face book page : ) 


This recipe is adapted from  Blessings From My Kitchen .I knew Tisa had  this  recipe in her blog so as soon as I got hold of some fresh lychees I went  straight there but some how I could not open her blog.Next day I contacted Tisa and she immediately mailed me the recipe.Is it not a blessing to have such blogger friends!!Thank you so much dear my husband I just loved the pudding.
  


Ingredients : (Yields around 4- 5 small bowls)

Whole milk- 1  cup +1/4 cup
Condensed milk - 1 can
Tender coconut pulp with water - of 1 coconut or half pack if frozen
Lychee 12-15
Gelatin-1 packet(around 2 tsp)

Method:

Boil the milk and condensed milk together and set aside to cool down.
Roughly chop the tender coconut pieces and lychee.
Warm up the 1/4 cup milk and mix the gelatin in it.
Combine the  milk,the fruit pulps and the coconut water and the gelatin mix well,pour into individual serving bowls and refrigerate until firm. Serve in the those bowls itself.

       Pudding is not intended to  be turned upside down.I just wanted to see how well it will hold its shape !


Love to hear from u guys.

  2. We make tender coconut pudding. But never put lychees in it Meena. That seems to be a lovely combo. And beautiful clicks too :) Can't wait to see what you did with the rest of the fruits in your lychee crate :D
