Milk Pudding


We are experiencing some severe heat wave here on the East Coast and the temperature sore up to upper 90’s and someday over 100 degree for the past few weeks. In the weather like this I tried to lay off cooking and baking as much as possible and all I want is to drink and eat something cooling and sweet. This milk pudding is such a nice treat for all of us in this scorching heat . No relief in sight yet. Crazy it may sound but I wish it is winter now :)



Ingredients:

600 ml water
120 gram sugar
8 gram agar agar powder
3 pandan leaves
300 ml milk
200 ml coconut milk
A few drop of pandan paste


1. In a medium size saucepan bring the water, agar agar power and pandan leaves to boil. Let it boil for 3 minute until agar agar power.
2. Add in sugar; continue to stir until sugar dissolved. Lastly pour in the milk and coconut milk. Turn down the heat and bring the mixture to a slow simmer. Turn off the heat and remove the pandan leaves.
3. Remove ¾ of the mixture and add in a small drop of pandan paste. Pour into prepared pan or mould. Let it set before pouring the balance of the agar agar (white portion) mixture on top. Let it set and serve cold.

Hi Gert, lovely puddings! Like the colour of it too..;)
Hey about your pictures (photos) were out of the box and also the bottom (post a comment) was overlapping with the pictures (linkWithin). Its it something wrong with your page? It was like that since you changed your page design.

It's so funny hearing everyone complaining about the heat! It's just a normal summer here in Florida. On the coast here we are just in the low 90s pretty average for us. We never reach 100. Everyone seems hotter than us!

Your milk pudding looks delicious! Very inviting!

Hi Gert,
Lovely green coconut milk pudding! Should be refreshing. ;) Btw, it has been raining cats and dogs over here in Singapore and been like that for so many days! It's been flooding in several areas here, such crazy weathers , so unlike the weather I grew up in. *sigh*

Anncoo said...

This is so refreshing and I love the green color, so sweet.

Well here in San Francisco it just 57 degree now so no heat wave. I still will make this pudding since it look so good.

Lovely pudding. Like your new template too.

Ho Ho Ho said...

Felt the 'coolness', freshness and breezie ness .. just by looking at the photos..

Wendy said...

It so inviting! Do you buy the pandan paste or am I misunderstanding the recipe? I went to a vietnamese market and they don't know what I am talking about. Would you mind posting a picture of the product?

Kitchen Corner said...

This is a very refreshing one indeed! The weather is really hot, I wish to have few pieces of these to cool me down.

Good one, Gert. It's a great pudding with a southeast asian twist. Like Lee Mei, anything with coconut milk and pandan is a hit with me.

Ju (The Little Teochew) said...

PS: Like your new look! :)

Shereen said...

wow!! it's been a long time I visit all the blogger blog! now you see I'm a lazy bum just watching kdrama! haha! I see you change to a new 3 column template.yes I love 3 column coz have more space to put other stuff..Why don't you add more Adsense? Adsense really can make $$$.last month I make $40 and I think this month I can make more...Anyway It's no harm to paste some Adsense,you have nothing to lose..just move your About to bottom and rearrange others ..well I always admire your skill making pudding or jello.so pretty and neat.mine is always a failure...most the time I just trash away:(

ICook4Fun said...

Vanillasugar, yes the weather is crazy!

Lily, thank you.

Lyndsey, today we will be having 105 degree heat and with the humidity it feels worst.

Busygran, yes the are a treat in this heat.

Sayantani, hop you like this.

Wendy, thank you. Back in Malaysia at least you will have some rain to cool down, over here nothing :(

Bee bee, thank you. Yea I read about Singapore flooding. Saw some pictures of Orchard Road and man it was bad.

Anncoo, yes it is.

Adell, I am moving to San Francisco :) :)

ICook4Fun said...

Saludos de My Kitchen Snippets.

Leemei, yes they are a great combination.

Yummy Koh, thank you.

Ho Ho Ho, ha ha

Wendy, thank you. Yes you do need a few drop of pandan paste for the green color. You should be able to get pandan paste at the Vietnamese store. By the way, where are you located? If you are in the US I might be able to send you a bottle.

Kitchen Corner, let exchange. I have your durian cake and you can have my milk pudding :) :)

ICook4Fun said...

K. Nor, hope you like this. Yes you can copy and paste it at your blog. Thanks for asking.

Ju, thank you.

Shereen, over here we are having 90
something temp for the nearly a month with no relief. Today is even worst. I wish I can be at NZ now :(

Angie, thanks.

Lesley, yes hardly see you update your blog now. I thought I told you the stories about adsense. Anyway glad that you make money from them.

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...
