Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk with the sugar and salt. Bring to a full boil and cook for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • In a bowl, combine the cornstarch with ¾ cup of water and, with a whisk, mix well into a slurry.
  • Immediately pour the slurry into the saucepan and cook, continuously whisking until the mixture thickens into a pudding, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Pour the mixture through a colander.
  • Transfer the strained pudding into a nonstick 12"x6" deep dish or into individual martini glasses.
  • Smooth out the surface, and set aside to cool.
  • Refrigerate to completely set, about 2 hours.
  • Dust the surface with ground cinnamon, slice, and serve.
