Three-tier Moss Pudding

Three-tier Moss Pudding

This Three-tier Moss Pudding is nostalgic and has pleasing memories attached to it. I guess the first time I made it was some three decades ago. And when I did I felt I had accomplished unthinkable; a perfect overturned dessert in three tiers. If you are a newbie cook during this lockdown, then do try out this pudding and wow your family!

In cooking Baking and Gelatine have been my nemesis. Maybe I never got good yeast or gelatine. I came across China grass, agar agar or Japanese Isinglass, kanten. It is obtained from red seaweed and is a natural, vegan thickener. Gelatine is said to be non-vegetarian, so agar agar can be used as an alternative by vegetarians. It is used as a thickener on puddings, desserts and pies. It is sold in dry form as strips or powder. Agar agar is a mild laxative as it has 80% fibre and is a great source of calcium, iodine, phosphorous and vitamins.

Three-tier Moss Pudding

This Three-tier Moss Pudding has three layers of different flavours; Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry. I usually use agar agar strips as the powder is not available here. Added to milk and Milkmaid, it thickens easily and sets even without refrigeration. Just divide the thickened milk into 3 portions and add flavours of your choice. Exotic looking Three-tier Moss Pudding is ready.
