Raspberry and Chia seed pudding / pudding recipe / Summer recipes

Raspberry and chia seeds pudding is an ideal summer treat that can be served chilled.


Chia seeds get so playful as u try to chew on them .Each seed becomes like a bead and says bite me if u can! Raspberry on on the other hand gives a slight tang against the milky flavor.You may substitute it with milder or sweeter fruits if u like, u may go for coconut milk too but I am such a  milk and condensed milk addict that I had to stay devoted to it .Oh! and  the recipe comes from my stash of loose sheets treasures saved :)


Do u guys believe in thinking alike.. I am so forced to...  Last week  I was surfing and I happen to see this really cute page .Don't u think anything in miniature is really adorable so I made a mental note and thought ,"Daughty is going to love it."
Okay nothing big but if u are impatient like me don't read the recipe skip to end  ! no worries guys :)


Ingredients

Milk -1 1/2 cup
Condensed milk- 1/2 cup
Agar agar /China grass - 10 gms
Water 1 cup
Chia seeds- 2 tbsp ( U may use basil seeds instead)
Raspberry- a few

Method

1.Soak the agar agar for 30 minutes in in 1 cup water in a pan.
2.Boil milk and add condensed milk boil for few more minutes switch off flame and let it cool off completely then add chia seeds in it so that it soaks and expands.
3.Now boil the  agar agar in a low flame until it dissolves completely.Then sieve it and add to the milk .
4.Pour this mixture into ramekins or molds and let it come to almost room temperature then drop few raspberries do not stir .
5.Leave it undisturbed in the refrigerator (not freezer) for at least 4 -5 hours.

Serve in the ramekins as it is or u may  remove from mold by immersing the bottom of the mold in warm water for less than a minute to loosen the pudding from it.

Note

  • chia seeds expand on soaking.
  • Do not disturb agar agar while setting it will not become jelly.
  • Too many fruits make it acidic and that affects the setting of agar agar.U may use gelatin instead for no risk pudding:)

So are you guys ready for fruit picking.. well! I am all set with three pairs of spring  dresses hanging on the clothes line and  a basket too :) Ya ..those came for Mother's Day :) .I can't help but think ..like mother like daughter :)) :))

Okay now go back to the recipe please if u skipped it !:)

Hope to hear from u guys.
