Thai Coconut Tapioca Pudding

Updated: Mar 7, 2023

This menu is called "Sa Kool Ma Praw" in Thai which Sa Kool means Tapioca and Ma Praw means Coconut or it's called Thai Coconut Tapioca pudding in English. As you know this tapioca pudding is Thai dessert and it serves in a mall portion after the main meal. Most of Thai menus are really spicy taste and as an authentic Thai food, we will serve sweet dessert after the main meal for tiny bit of dessert to cool down the spicy with sweetness. If this dessert bowl serving during summer, I would also add some crushed ice over the top of this pudding.

You can change the corn to something else like sliced mango, avocado, peach, taro, or sweet potato will give you a different flavors. It could be mix and match with other fruits you prefer. To prepare this dessert is only taken about 20 minutes and it's really easy! I prepare this sweet dessert all the time especially during summer time. My household love to have it in different flavors and prepare each flavor at a time.
