Sautéing desiccated coconut with sugar results in a crunchy topping that complements the pleasantly sour taste of thick curds.

In this luscious dessert, an assortment of tropical fruits is topped with a creamy curd mixture and garnished with the caramelised coconut mixture. A small dose of powdered sugar and a mild vanilla flavouring make the curd-cream mixture very pleasing to the taste buds.

  1. Desiccated coconut is best stored in the side compartment of the freezer in a ziploc bag or in an air-tight container. It retains its freshness, flavour and texture better this way, than in the refrigerator section.
