  1. I think I know which Chinese grass you are referring too. We call it agar-agar over here, the thin long colorless long stripes I suppose. Oh yes, its very popular over here and we use it to make our pudding also. Simple and interesting and I can never say not to milk flavored pudding.

    I am admiring the tiny winy pieces of the grass at the bottom of the pudding.

  2. Lovely pudding! Love the snow white color.
    Also the presentation needs a special mention, as always Beena!!

  3. Looks very good…nicely presented !

    Agar agar (China grass) is a gelatinous substance. Besides the culinary usage it is used for microbiological studies for growing microorganisms in the lab. It has appetite suppressant properties and is gaining popularity as a weight loss diet.

    Please include a pic of agar-agar so that it will be helpful for those who are unfamiliar with this ingredient.

    Thank you for using this in a dish, hope you will come out with more dishes using agar-agar. Agar-agar is good for reducing cholesterol, controlling appetite and is suitable for diabetics also.
