coconut porridge

Mmmm. Something warm and comforting? and as white as a new born baby lamb? I was cleaning my pantry and found some coconut flakes and milk and had a sudden craving to try to make a coconut porridge. I saw recipes for flax porridge so why not. This is flavored with indian ingredient….you could just as easily sweeten it a little with a mashed banana, dates, or cut up fresh fruit

Coconut Porridge

2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup coconut milk
2 cups water
Seeds from 1 cardamom pod
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
Splash rose water
Sprinkle cinnamon

Put coconut into food processor and pulse until it is finely chopped. Put into a pot and add coconut milk, water and cardamom pod. Cook on medium. Once it comes to a bubble add the vanilla. Put the eggs into a bowl and scramble with a fork. Add 2 ladles of the hot coconut mixture to the eggs and stir in well to temper then pour the egg mixture into the pot (this is to avoid having scrambled eggs strings in your porridge). Stir for a few minutes until the egg is cooked thru then turn off the heat and add a splash of rose water. Serve with a sprinkling of cinnamon.
