This Eggless Chocolate Pudding is a wonderfully rich and creamy pudding with a deep chocolate flavor. We use “Agar Agar” – a gelatin substitute to set this pudding…

Classic Chocolate Pudding…. sans Eggs

There is nothing more comforting than a glass of velvety smooth Chocolate Pudding. Come on, who’s with me?

You’re not? Oh, I get it. You think my chocolate mousse is better. 😛 That’s okay. I do too. BUT… every now and then, I like to get my pans dirty and make a glass of intense chocolate pudding. And while some may think puddings are not the “in-thing” anymore, I never say no to the good ol’ classics!

This Eggless Chocolate Pudding gets it’s intense chocolatey flavor from using good quality dark chocolate as well as unsweetened cocoa powder. The smooth texture is as a result of using cornstarch for “thickening” the cream and the agar agar is for setting the pudding. You can easily make this with low fat milk – but HELLO! Do not go easy on the heavy cream! 😉 Eggless Chocolate Pudding Recipe | Tasty Agar Agar Pudding

Let the mixture cook on low heat while constantly stirring to avoiding forming of lumps. In 3-4 minutes (or a little more), the mixture will start thickening. Cook until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.

Note

  1. If the agar agar mixture has thickened up, reheat till is is in a liquid form again. It is okay if the agar agar flakes haven’t fully dissolved. They will mix with the cream mixture. And the ones that don’t dissolve will get strained out anyway.
  2. It is very important to strain the mixture before setting it. There are small lumps that may tend to form because of the cornstarch, agar agar. By straining it once, you ensure a smooth & velvety pudding

Tip: Agar Agar is a vegetarian Gelatin substitute that is used to set puddings, mousse, custard etc.
