Chikoo or Sapodilla Pudding


Chikoo or sapodilla pudding with caramel malty flavor, tastes divine... Chikoo or Sapodilla is an incredibly sweet fruit when it's ripe and is commonly found in Tropical countries. There's a huge tree on the front yard of my parents house in Kerala and they have the luxury of picking the chikoo from the tree and enjoying it. Since, birds are easily attracted towards the sweet ripe chikoo and they won't spare the fruit for you, it's mostly picked when it's about to ripe and is allowed to ripen over the kitchen countertop. Milkshake made out of chikoo is very common in most milkshake bars in kerala. As the ripe chikoo is incredibly sweet and has a caramel flavor, the fruit itself tastes delicious. In North America, I've seen frozen chikoo being sold at most Indian stores. This is one of my favorite fruits and I always have this stacked up in my freezer. I mostly make milkshakes out of it by adding milk, a tsp of vanilla extract and honey, tastes delicious. The other day, I made pudding
