This delicacy is made from coconut milk, corn starch or gelatin, sweet corn kernels, milk, sugar and an option to put toasted coconut meat or Latik (browned coconut cream crumbs) as toppings.


  • 2 cups cornstarch
  • 4 cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup Nestle cream or light cream
  • 1.5 cups white sugar
  • 3 cups evaporated or fresh milk
  • 1 cup diced cheese
  • 1 cup corn kernel


  1. Mix all the ingredients ( leave some corn and cheese for toppings later)
  2. Mix well until the cornstarch is fully dissolved then cook over medium heat stirring well to avoid it from settling at the bottom of the pot.
  3. Continue stirring until the mixture becomes firm, allow to simmer for a while before transferring to a molding tray.
  4. Pour to your desired container or molding tray then top with cheese and corn let cool and refrigerate before serving.
