China grass pudding / Kadal paasi cake / agar agar pudding

I'm very much familiar to this dish right from my childhood. In karaikal, my grandma has so many Muslim friends. They specially make this desserts for Ramzan. My paati reserves some of this pudding for me and my bro. She would take special efforts for the dessert to reach us ,..means she would be on her way to Thanjavur.. How sweet is this .....?!!  ... I know....
Also called as agar agar. Nowadays,it's easily available in Indian shops . I got mine from an indian shop around here. For those who doesn't have any indian shops nearby can check out any chinese,vietnamese,korean shops. They also carry china grass.. It's also available in Powder form.

One of my freinds requested for the pics .. This is how it looks like

Ingredients :
China grass / agar agar -- 2 tbsp
Water -- 1/2 cup
Milk -- 1 1/2 cups
Sugar -- 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp
Rose essence drops -- 1/4 tsp
Colour powder -- a dash ( i used lemon yellow )
Method :
In  a pot add the agar agar and half cup of water. Bring it a boil . Cook the agar agar until it dissolves completely.

This may take upto 4 minutes. Then add the milk and combine well. Again bring this mixture to a boil. Add the colour powder,rose water drops and combine. Add the sugar too.

 Now the mixture will be bit watery  as u've added sugar. Combine well till the sugar dissolves. Pour the content to a mould or any vessels that can get hold of it.Cover it. Do not disturb the set up. U may add ur garnishing item if u want. I've added almonds. Leave the set up for 2 to 3 hours .

After that keep it in the refrigerator and cut into diamonds and serve chilled..

Njoy !!!
