Coconut Pannacotta

This set pudding is inspired by the Elaneer payasam (Tender Coconut Payasam), a very simple and quick-to-make dessert from South India. The bits of the tender coconut pieces along with the blend of evaporated milk and coconut milk make this dish an ideal Navratri special recipe.
