I wanted to try Rose Pudding using china grass since the day I made homemade rose syrup,after I made rose jelly I gained confidence in handling china grass / agar agar.Though in the initial days of using agar agar was not a success now I can say it comes out well.As its Ramzan,thought to try and post this easy rose pudding recipe using china grass.I made it only today morning and here I am with this post :)
These puddings are not easy to make, it tastes delicious perfect to serve for kids too.
Mittu loves it so much and am waiting for her be back from school to taste it :)

- Take 1 and 1/2 cups of milk in a pan,boil it.Simmer for 5 mins.
- Switch off, add sugar and let is dissolve completely, mix with a spatula.Let it cool down.
- Add rose syrup,mix well.Set aside.Now take china grass in a pan(I cut them into small strips).
- Rinse it with water once, then add water till immersing level.
- Heat it up in sim,cook until its completely dissolved.Strain this into the pan containing rose milk.Mix with a spoon to speed up the straining process.
- Mix it quickly.Pour it in the tray/bowl where you want to set.Do not delay as it will start setting quickly.
- Leave it undisturbed for 30mins.No need to keep in fridge it will set well in room temperature itself.Once set you can leave it in the fridge until serving time.Cut into squares.
Serve chilled with a sprinkle of color sprinklers,looks cute and tastes great too.
You can eat it as such or use it in any desserts ,custard based puddings or cakes.mittu loved to have it as such.
- Agar Agar sets beautifully in room temperature itself.But if you want you can refrigerate it.
- You can even set it in individual cups and serve it as such.
- I used Nilgiris brand china grass.
- My rose syrup was already sweet so 1/4 cup sugar was just right.
- Be quick after agar agar mixture is poured,whisk it well then immediately pour to set.
- You can use any flavour following this method.You can even add fruit purees.
