Mango Pudding using Agar Agar Powder

Mango Pudding – Top View Mango Pudding – Side View

After eating mango pudding at my friend’s wedding dinner, I had an urge in learning how to make mango pudding. There are different types of ingredients you can use to make mango pudding. Most people are using unflavored gelatin to make the pudding that will “harden” the pudding. However, I did some research on gelatin. Gelatin is prepared by the thermal denaturation of collagen, isolated from animal skin and bones, with very dilute acid. It can also be extracted from fish skins.

Since vegetarians can’t take gelatin, I went to look for replacement for gelatin and that is the agar agar powder. Agar agar powder helps to solidify the liquid into soft texture, bouncy pudding.

There are two types of attaining agar agar, one is by melting the agar agar stick and the other is buy the ready-made agar agar powder. Buying the ready-made agar agar powder is more convenient. However, when you are buying the agar agar powder, take note at the left hand corner of the packaging highlighted in the picture above. Look at the color of the powder, there are many colors available. To make mango pudding, you can buy yellow or buy normal agar agar powder that has no coloring when cooked. If you had bought the colorless agar agar powder, you will need to buy the mango coloring or yellow coloring to have a tasty look mango pudding.

In addition, to have a more real tasty pudding, it would be good if you can add mango flavour into the pudding. You will smell mango and taste mango pudding at the same time. The mango flavour is very strong. My finger got in contact with the mango flavour liquid, no matter how many times I wash my hand, the mango smell still linger around. Even after eating the mango pudding, my mouth still has a mango smell.

F&N evaporated Filled Milk

The type of evaporated milk can be any brand. For this pudding, I am using F&N evaporated milk. You can choose to use King of Kings brand.

Equipment required to make mango pudding:

  • Pot – to boil the pudding mixture
  • Big mould or small Jelly moulds
  • Stirrer

    hi, is the amount of water too much? agar agar does not harden at all.

      hi mudpie255,

      amount of water is not too much. the purpose is not to let it hardens like jelly but be softer like pudding.

    usually each manufacturer will give you instruction on how much water to use. one useful tips. all ingredients in liquid form should be consider as part of the amount of water you use.

  4. alyahana said

    Another tips… add your coloring in the beginning before boiling the water. the color will be cooked as well.
    as for the flavoring add only when the agar agar is boiling and ready to be scoop. there for you only need small amount. Brace your self from pouring to much flavoring.
