Mango Pudding – Top View Mango Pudding – Side View

First time, I tried mango pudding using agar agar powder, however, the texture of the pudding is still not the texture that I usually eat at the restaurant. So this time I tried using Konnyaku Jelly Powder, see whether there is any difference.

The equipment and procedures is the same as the equipment and procedures stated in mango pudding using agar agar powder. As compared to using agar agar powder, Konnyaku powder seems to be more chewy, just like a jelly. When I try to scoop out the pudding, its a spoon of mango, it automatically separates out the mango and the pudding. This does not happen for the mango pudding when using agar agar powder. If you like the texture of a jelly, then you can do a mango pudding using Konnyaku Jelly powder. If you like the texture of a real pudding, then use agar agar powder. For me, I still prefer the texture of a real pudding. Lol.

The pudding made from konnyaku seems to be more shiny as compared to agar agar powder. Haha, or maybe it could be due to the lighting when I took the picture.

After several attempts of making mango pudding, I always use an estimate amount of water and evaporated milk. I am not sure whether this is due to the amount of water or is it the powder difference. This is because the weight of each packet of Konnyaku Jelly powder and the weight of each packet of Agar agar powder is different, so the amount of water I had added is different. The recipe below will be a rough gauge of how much water you need to put.

Recipe of Mango Pudding using Konnyaku Jelly Powder

Ingredients:

1 packet of Konnyaku Jelly Powder (10g)
1420 ml of water
90ml evaporated milk
8 – 10 tbsp of sugar
2 drops of Konnyaku Mango Color
1/4 teaspoon Konnyaku Mango Flavour (optional)
1 Mango

Preparations:

  1. Cut the mango into dices.
  2. Pour the Konnyaku powder into water gradually and stir till boil.
  3. Add evaporated milk, sugar, mango color and mango flavour.
  4. Stir well.
  5. Turn off flame and put mango into the pot.
  6. Pour the mixture into the moulds.
  7. Chill to set the moulded mango pudding in the refrigerator before serve.

Finishing: Once mango pudding has settled and chilled, remove from fridge and serve to your guests.

Tips:

  • You may cut half a cherry to decorate on top of the mango pudding.
  • The mango flavour is optional but it can add on the smell of the mango pudding to make it more tasty.
  • The amount of sugar to add in depends on you, you may want to add more. Taste it while mixing. Do take note that when the mixture is hot, it will definitely taste very sweet, once it has cooled down and chilled, it will not be as sweet.

Notes: This recipe can make about 10 – 15 mango pudding depending on the size of your mould.

Mango Pudding using Agar Agar Powder

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.


Highlighted where you can see the color code of the agar agar powder

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.

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
