I had been thinking of making an eggless chocolate pudding for a long time. This weekend I fulfilled my cravings for this pudding. I got so many recipes for eggless chocolate pudding in the net. I took the best from each of the recipes and came up with my own. Few websites I browsed are recipezaar, informationsindia, tammys etc. The pudding tasted very nice. As Stephanie had mentioned we had it with softly whipped cream topping. It was just delicious.
Ingredients to serve 2 adults
Milk: 150 ml Heavy cream: 30 gms Granulated white sugar: 35 gms Cocoa powder: 8 gms Corn flour/Corn starch: 10 gms Salted/Unsalted Butter: 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract: 1/2 tsp Salt: a pinch
1. Mix sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a bowl. 2. Add little milk(around 5 tbsp) to the mixture and mix well to form a smooth paste. 3. In a sauce pan, pour the rest of the milk and cream and bring to a boil. Switch off the stove. 4. Pour the paste mixture into the sauce pan and mix well. 5. Keep the sauce pan in a stove under medium heat. Stir constantly(otherwise it might form lumps) till the mixture becomes thick(pudding consistency). 6. Remove from heat. 7. Add butter and vanilla extract and mix well. 8. Pour into bowls. 9. It can be had warm or refrigerated.
For garnishing, a tbsp of heavy cream can be whipped until it forms soft peaks and put over the pudding.
Delicious eggless chocolate pudding is ready.
Note:Special care needs to be taken when the pudding is in the stove, otherwise it might form lumps. So it is better to keep stirring slowly till it reaches the pudding consistency.
