Chilled Coconut Tapioca pudding flavoured with Kaffir Lime and topped with Mango is the perfect dessert for summer. Light, flavourful and oh so summery!
Its mid-May and we are experiencing one of the hottest summers here in Bangalore. So today there is a chilled coconut tapioca pudding flavoured with kaffir lime and topped with mango to deal with the heat. It is a very refreshing dessert to make in this scorching summer heat, plus its vegan and gluten-free. A totally a win-win situation if you ask me.
Kaffir lime is probably one of the most aromatic herbs used in southeast Asian cuisine. And I love how it works both in sweet as well as savoury dishes. I must insist that you use it in this particular dish as its easily available in most gourmet stores or online. And if you can’t find it, our desi lemon leaves work too.
Sago a.k.a., tapioca pearls or sabudana is pretty much a staple in all Indian homes. And my personal favourite way to eat it is in the form of sabudana khichdi. My mother in law also makes a delicious payasam with it. And honestly, this pudding is so similar to payasam. Coconut milk, mild sugar cooked together vs milk and jaggery cooked along with sago. Same difference right?
With a handful of ingredients (5 to be precise), only 20 minutes to get ready this will become your summer go to dessert once you try it!
