Taro root pudding is a traditional Asian dessert that is typically served hot or cold. It has a sweet and creamy texture and is made with taro root, sweet rice, sugar, and salt. The pudding can be topped with prepared coconut sauce for added flavor and richness.

To make the pudding, first cook the taro root in boiling water until it is tender. Then, cook the sweet rice in hot water until it is tender but not overcooked.
