Coconut Tapioca Pudding, Vegan Dessert

I absolutely love looking at food blogs because you can be inspired and get ideas. I was searching for some dessert recipes since I have guests coming over for dinner tonight and I found this recipe and I fell in love with it. I HAD to try it. I love coconut milk and pudding/payasam who doesn’t love it πŸ™‚ . I found the original recipe from here but I changed some ingredients to suit me πŸ˜€ .


1 1/2 cup tapioca seeds
3 cups coconut milk (drinking variety, found in the milk section near soy, almond milk, etc)
1 can of coconut milk (cooking variety)
1 1/2 cup of sugar
2 tsp of Pure Vanilla essence
12 pods of cardamom, powdered/crushed
handful of cashew nuts, broken
handful of raisins
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
2 tbsp ghee


  1. Soak the tapioca seeds in coconut milk (drinking variety) overnight.
  2. Place them in the stove and add the can of coconut milk (full fat). Let it boil in a medium heat. Stir occasionally so that the seeds don’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Once it is boiling, add the vanilla, cardamom and sugar. Stir them and let it boil for 10 min.
  4. In a separate pan toast the sesame seeds till its light brown and keep them separately.
  5. In the same pan, add 2 tbsp of ghee and fry the broken cashew buts till its brown and keep them aside.
  6. Then add the raisin and fry till they get swollen and keep aside.
  7. Finally add the fried cashews and raisins to the pudding and stir them.
  8. Serve the pudding in a dish with toasted sesame seeds on top :D.

They tasted amazing, but I think I should have reduced the amount of sugar at least for me but hubby thought it was good πŸ˜€ . Add sugar to your taste but this vegan dessert is fantastic version of our normal Payasam. Thank God It came out good πŸ˜† .
