My Masi( Maternal Aunt) used to make this pudding for us along with her many delicacies, whenever we visited her. She is a great cook and whips up delicious meals within no time. While I learned my daily cooking and basics from my mom, she was the one who inspired me to try out new dishes and introduced me to the world of home-cooked pasta, noodles, presenting desserts in different ways and many more. She used to serve this with chopped fruits, jelly and loads of chopped chocolate.

Chill it for a few hours and serve it with fruits, jam, chopped chocolate, nuts of your choice. Or, make a trifle, serve it with over a piece of cake or warm brownie or have it just like that. My favourite way of eating is to add berries, some mixed fruit/strawberry jam. Kids love it with loads of chopped chocolate.

Ingredients for Eggless Chocolate Pudding

Made with 3 basic ingredients milk, cocoa powder and vanilla flavoured custard powder that is used for thickening and gives it a creamy texture.

If you follow a vegan diet or have are lactose intolerant than you can use plant based milk like  Almond Milk, Soy Milk in place of dairy milk.

To sweeten it I use Raw Cane Sugar. Health-wise it is better to use Raw organic sugars than the synthetic castor sugar.But you use castor sugar in the recipe.

If you live outside India, Custard Powder is available in Indian grocery stores. It is used for making Eggless Vanilla Pudding/Custard that for years is one of the favourite desserts of most of the Indian families. I use Brown and Polson Vanilla Custard Powder, any other brand will also be good.

If you don’t have custard powder you can substitute it with Cornstarch and vanilla essence.
