Vanilla & Chocolate Pudding Recipe – Agar Agar Pudding Recipe with Step wise pictures.
This is a delicious pudding which has both vanilla and chocolate layer in them. I made it in glasses but you can make it in tiny cups for parties. The pudding is so creamy and taste so refreshing.
This is great for summer time, since kids love pudding. This pudding is made using agar agar or china grass as a setting agent. Agar agar is a natural coolant to body. You can use gelatin as a setting agent, but agar agar is much more healthy.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
