As my Mom’s neighbor is a Christian, every Sunday, lunch used to be a very big affair. She used to make this pudding in the morning and leave it in the fridge before heading out to Church and after lunch, this will be the dessert. Many a Sunday afternoons have been spent licking away this yummy, chocolaty dessert and I thought this will be just perfect for the occasion.
Eggless Chocolate Pudding Recipe
Prep time: 2 mins | Cook time: 5 mins | Rest time: 1 hour | Serves: 4
Recipe Cuisine: Continental | Recipe Category: Desserts
- Milk – 2 cups (250 ml)
- Sugar – 1/2 cup (100 gms)
- Cocoa powder – 2 tbsp
- Custard powder (Vanilla flavor) – 2 tbsp)
- In a small mixing bowl, take custard powder and cocoa powder together. Add 1/2 cup milk (room temperature) and using a balloon whisk, beat till they are completely dissolved in the milk.
- In a saucepan, heat the remaining milk, add sugar and using the whisk, mix till it dissolves completely. By now the milk will be steaming hot.
- Add the custard-cocoa milk mixture in a slow stream to the boiling milk.
- Keep cooking over medium flame for 5 mins till the mixture becomes thick and gets a shiny look.
- Rinse the bowls in which you are going to serve and pour the pudding into the bowls. After it cools down to room temperature, keep the bowls in the refrigerator for atleast an hour to get chilled.
- Serve cold with any fruit of your choice.
- You can also use the same quantity of corn flour (corn starch) instead of custard powder but make sure that you also add vanilla extract for flavor.
- Rinsing the bowls with water ensures that the pudding does not stick to the bowl.
- I used 2% milk, but you can also use full cream whole milk.
- Adjust the quantity of the sugar according to your taste.
