♥silk Pudding with Passion fruit syrup♥
1 package (7 grams) agar-agar (Indonesian agar agar)
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1800 ml water
Passion fruit syrup Mix the water, condensed milk and agar2 in a saucepan and bring to a boil over a medium heat.
This will take a while, stir often as to prevent the milk mixture to be separated.
When it comes to a gentle boil, remove from the heat and pour in a mould.
used 9×13″ pyrex glass mould and it fits perfectly.
Let the pudding sit at room temperature until at least the steam has gone. Transfer it to the refrigerator and chill until set, about 3 hours at least.
Cut into squares using knife, or if you’re using small/mini mould, no need to cut them.
Pour enough syrup to cover the surface of the pudding. Shake the pan gently to let the syrup to go down in between the cuts. Add more syrup as needed, but don’t go overboard as it will be too sweet.
Put the pudding back in the fridge and chill for at least another four hours to let the syrup penetrates the pudding.
You can scatter some fruits on top. I used raspberry but mango or any fruits should work well. Serve cold.
