1. Take a big vessel and heat together coconut milk, sugar, ground ginger, cinnamon and tapioca.
2. Make sure to stir them continuously to avoid the tapioca from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to low.
4. Meanwhile toast the coconut flakes on low heat.
5. As the coconut milk thickens, add the coconut water.

6. Garnish the pudding with toasted coconut flakes before serving.
