If you are trying to find out low-fat, low-carb., vegan, and gluten-free dessert then this is for you directly from Thailand.
- ½ cup black sesame seeds
- ½ cup peanuts (unslated, dry, roasted)
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
Heat water with salt added in a pot over medium-high heat.
Take a coffee grinder and grind the sesame seeds well; remove seeds and grind nuts in coffee grinder.
Add the ground sesame seeds to the hot salted water and stir, mixing the seeds well into the water. Add ground nuts into the sauce pan and stir well.
Bring the sesame-nut water to a boil, and then reduce to medium heat. Simmer the mixture for 10 minutes.
The pudding can be strained to get rid of the little bits of nut and sesame, pour the strained sesame-nut water back into the pot and discard the grounds.
With the pudding still placed over medium to low heat, add the sugar, vanilla, coconut milk, and the arrowroot powder dissolved in water. Stir continuously. The dessert should thicken within a minute or two.
To serve, pour into dessert cups or bowls while still warm and sprinkle with a little dry shredded coconut or some ground peanuts.
