i read the pink diamond recipe and when i looked for agar agar in the local store i cud not find it other than flavoured pudding form.. the instructions for pudding are using the one on packet so they can vary from product to product
since it is mango season i used mango flavour and combined it with my cheesecake recipe. one can use any other flavour.. the result was yummy.. and use fruits to go with it
1 packet flavoured china grass
500 ml milk ( as required by the recipe on pack)
2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon white butter
10-12 digestive/ marie biscuits
in a blender ( chutney maker or kitchen mate whatever for coarse grinding) mix biscuits with butter and 1 teaspoon sugar and make a coarse crumble .. take an 8 " loose bottom tin and pat the mix gently on base..
sprinkle a little sugar on fruit ( will depend on fruit sweet or sour) and arrange it over biscuit base..
make the pudding using chef in you recipe or as on the packet.. mine needed mixing it in cold milk and giving a gentle boil for a minute. take off the burner and after a minute or so pour it over the fruit.
let it set it sets automatically in about 10-15 minutes .. u can chill it in refrigerater before serving..
take out the set pudding by removing loose bottom sides
It is indeed 4 tbsp powder. The mixture is supposed to be thick enough to cut into slices. I am not sure what you mean by very thick! --DK
Another name for China Grass. Its a vegetarian equivalent of Gelatin. --DK
The link I have provided in the first para will throw more light to your question
Thanks for the pointer namy. I have updated the post with this. Its in the first step :) --DK
Oh yes Naksha! I am sure. You might get either in a powder form or in this flaky form. Both work :) --DK
