Haupi (Hawaiian Coconut Pudding)
3 cups coconut milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons cornstarch
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, heat all but 1/4 cup of the coconut milk. Add the sugar, salt and vanilla. Mix the remaining coconut milk with cornstarch and gradually add to the pan, stirring until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Pour the mixture into a square cake pan and chill until firm.
Cut the pudding into small squares and serve.
