Sri Lankan Watalappan – Made with jaggery and maggi coconut milk powder

watalappan

There is no better way to describe this pudding, usually reserved for special occasions as “a heavenly treat”.

This pudding has a Malay origin and is made with thick coconut milk and the solid form of coconut treacle, called “jaggery”.  Traditionally,  this is made by steaming in an aluminium pudding basin, dipped  into a large pan half filled with water.

However, you can also bake it in a Pyrex dish in the oven which is much easier.  If you fancy the original taste, do not hesitate to steam it . Either way, you will come to love it!!

I made this pudding using Maggi coconut milk powder which I found the best choice in the absence of real coconut milk and also, the texture of the pudding comes out  much firmer allowing you to cut into dainty squares.

So, give it a try today !!







What you need:

 Maggie Coconut Milk Powder 6 full tablespoons
Palm jaggery (Brown) 1 round
Brown sugar 2 tbsp
Nutmeg -grated (essential item for this pudding) 1 full tsp
Salt pinch
Eggs (large) 5
Water 1/2 cup

Let’s make it :

  • Place the jaggery round in a bag and knock it with a rolling pin until powdered.

Blend it

    • Now, drop jaggery, eggs, coconut milk powder, grated nutmeg, salt and 2 tbsp of water into the blender jar.

 

    • Whiz only 30  seconds.  More mixing will loosen the pudding.

 

  • Sieve through a siever.

Oven it




 

    • Pour the liquid into a pudding basin, cover tightly with a foil and steam.  Or, pour into a Pyrex dish, cover with a foil, place the dish in a baking tray, half filled with water and bake in the oven at 200 C for 30 – 45 mins. (This is called double boiling method)

 

    • After 45 mins take the tray out, remove the cover slightly and insert a skewer and check if it comes clean.  If so, the pudding is ready!  If not, place it in the oven for another 10 mins.

 

  • Take the dish out, open the foil cover and let it cool off. (You can sprinkle some roasted or raw cashews on top at this point)

Serve it

  • Place the pudding in the fridge and cut into perfect squares before serving.
  • Yum !!
