  1. Bring 475ml water to the boil in a small saucepan; cook the sweetcorn kernels in the boiling water until tender. Stir the sugar into the mixture.
  2. Whisk the tapioca flour with 75ml water in a bowl until you have a thick slurry; stir the slurry into the sweetcorn mixture and cook until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Divide into 4 separate bowls.
  3. Combine the coconut cream and salt in a separate small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat to a simmer (being careful to not to boil) until thoroughly heated; drizzle over the dessert to serve.


If your local supermarket doesn't stock tapioca flour, you can find it in Southern Asian/Oriental speciality shops or online.
