This slightly scary looking recipe is the perfect way to spook older kids around Halloween time or for a magical Wizard's party (just tell them it's made from real dragon's eyeballs). This is adapted from a traditional Chinese medicinal recipe using longan fruits (instead of lychees) to assist with patients suffering from anemia, so it's actually very good for you. The lychees and ground rice are readily available from any larger supermarket.

I have kept this recipe simple, however, for dramatic effect, you could add a few drops of red food coloring (or beetroot juice or raspberry cordial) to the ground rice mixture to make it resemble blood. Or maybe you could just use ready made custard as the base, to make the preparation stage even more simple.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4 servings


565 gram tin of lychees (or fresh lychees when in season)
3 tablespoons ground rice
1 cup filtered water
Few drops of red food coloring (optional)

Dragon Eye Pudding, Halloween, Lychees
Ingredients for Dragon eyeballs


Strain the lychees and set the syrup aside in a saucepan.

Strain the lychees

Add 3 tablespoons of ground rice to the lychee syrup. Mix these ingredients together and add the water.

Bring to the boil, slowly, while stirring constantly, then simmer (approximately ten minutes) until the ground rice thickens. (If you are short of time - you could substitute the ground rice with ready made custard and add a few drops of red food coloring to make it resemble blood) The lychee syrup is naturally quite sweet, but you may wish to add some sugar at this point to make it more of a dessert treat.

Serve to a party of wizards or Halloween ghosts. Tell them they're real eye balls to make the kids really squirm and squeal. You could also add a banana tongue for a bit of extra fun. Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween.
