Traditional Indian Coconut Colostrum Pudding
Traditional Indian Coconut Colostrum Pudding (Soyi Posu)
Colostrum milk comes from the first 5 milkings of a cow after she has had a calf. It is very rich in nutrients and is a Super Food for the immune system. It has a long history of use in all traditional cultures.
I found this recipe on an Indian website and adapted it a bit. (http://cuisineindia.wordpress.com/2008/12/12/posu-colostrum-milk-sweet-dish/)
3 cups (750ml) Colostrum Milk (You can add an extra cup of regular raw full cream milk if the colostrum is from the very first milking, because it cooks to an extra stiff consistency)
1 ½ cup (375ml) Desiccated Coconut (unsweetened)
½ – ¾ cup (125 – 180ml) Rapadura (Organic Raw Sugar)
15 Cardamom seeds, powdered in a coffee mill
½ cup (125ml) almonds, grated or chopped
Place the Colostrum Milk, coconut and Rapadura in a medium saucepan.
Cook on a medium heat until it becomes very thick.
Add the cardamom powder and nuts.
Can be served warm or cold.
I was really surprised at how tasty it is. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first…
Makes 8 servings.
