Refreshingly Good (Chickpea Coconut Pudding)

Yum, yum, yum. I like chickpeas. Love to get them freshly steamed with a hint of spice from 'kacang puteh' stalls but sadly, they are not so easily available these days. Chickpeas are also great lightly tossed with mixed vegetables salad. They are really pretty versatile. But it was my first time coming across it being used in an Asian-styled chilled pudding when I saw this recipe. Naturally, I have to give it a try.

And I wasn't let down. It was good! An ideal dessert to eat on hot afternoons! My mom couldn't stop snacking on these. Do givc this recipe a try. Here are my comments on the recipe:
- I halved the recipe but added an entire can of chickpeas (rinsed).
- Texture is very soft. It won't hold in your hand.

chickpeas are good. my favorite!! always feel that the kacang puteh ones are not enough for me. i think i need at least 3 "cones" of that lol. now i mostly stick to the canned ones, also called garbanzo beans. they're still good =)

your pudding looks yummilicious! reminds me of the hoon kueh that uses corn or banana :p

Me too! Me too! But nothing beats freshly steamed ones. But like you said, canned ones are alright too. Once, I tried steaming myself. It took SO BL****Y LONG.
