Submitted By: Manjulas Kitchen
Region: Indian Dish: Vegetarian - Desserts


1 cup coconut milk
2 cup soy milk
cup sugar
2 teaspoons agar-agar powder, available in Indian and Asian grocery stores
teaspoon cardamom crushed
cup coconut shredded
Approx. 20 crushed pistachios
Pinch of saffron crushed


Boil coconut milk, soy milk, coconut, pistachios, and sugar over medium high heat. After milk comes to boil let it boil for about 7-8 minutes, stir occasionally.
Mix agar-agar, saffron, and cardamom powder with cup of lukewarm water making sure agar-agar is dissolved.
Add the agar-agar mixture to the milk and mix it well, let it boil for 3-4 minutes. Stir occasionally otherwise agar-agar can become lumpy. Turn off the heat.
Pour it into either flat dish or molds, while it is still hot. Note: As milk mixture will cool it will start getting firm.
Refrigerate for about 2-3 hours or until set. Serve chill.

Coconut Dream is a vegan delight, it is flavored with cardamom and saffron, very soothing and refreshing. Adding Agar-agar sets this dessert like jelly. It is super easy to make and taste great. I like to serve Coconut Dream chilled.
