Tender Coconut which is known as elaneer in Tamil has very huge health benefits, which no other food can match. It is a very useful food especially when you have stomach ulcers or mouth ulcers.
Though elaneer is very common in Tamil Nadu and it can be taken straight away, recently I happened to attend a marriage in Chettinad and there I saw this recipe which is quiet new and amazingly tasty. I drank two cups. I asked the chef for the recipe. He used milk for this recipe. I gave a twist . I used coconut milk for extra richness. It is a real summer cooler too.
You can also try this new recipe and you can surprise your family members too.
Come let us make elaneer Payasam.
- Tender coconut Water – 1cup
- Tender coconut flesh (vazhukkai) – 1 cup
- Coconut milk – 1 cup
- Condensed milk – 4 tblsp
- Vanilla essence – few drops
Add tender coconut flesh, condensed milk and little coconut milk in a blender and blend well. Add remaining coconut milk and tender coconut water and blend well. Add vanilla essence few drops and serve chill.
This sweet is enough for me. If you want you can add sugar also.
Add milk instead of coconut milk .
No need to add fried cashews. If you want you can add .
The plain tender coconut gives it a good flavor. If you want you can add vanilla essence.
