For the coconut chocolate mousse:

  • Make a ganache from the coconut milk and chocolate, add soaked gelatin leaf, let cool into 32°C. With a spatula add the whipped cream and tender coconut malai.

For the pineapple filling:

  • Cook the pineapple with sugar till all the water evaporates. Take out from heat and add vodka.

For the chocolate shell:

  • Melt and temper the chocolate. Now dip a balloon into the chocolate to get the desired shape. De-mould it and with brush rub it gently to get coconut texture.

For the raspberry pips:

Once mousse has set, scoop out coconut mousse from center so that it should look like a real coconut. Fill 2 tsp of coconut crumble into it followed by the pineapple filling. Let it set for 5 mins. Plate it in desired plate and garnish with a pineapple leaf and caramelised pineapple slice.
