Agar Agar Pudding


  • Gits Bombay Halwa Mix – 1 small packet (80 gms)
  • Lukewarm Milk – 2 cups

When I got a packet of “Gits” instant Bombay Halwa Mix, I thought it is a combination of maida and other ingredients. However, when I read the ingredients, I understand it is made from China Grass (Agar Agar).

Agar Agar (China Grass) is a pure vegetarian food product extracted from different types of seaweed or sea red algae. It acts as a perfect “Slimming Diet” and cools the body.
Usually Halwa is little chewy with lot of ghee in it. Since this recipe does not need any ghee, I thought naming it “Halwa” as mentioned in the Instant Mix packet, will not properly describe this recipe. So, I call it “Pudding”.

Put the Gits Bombay Halwa Mix in a thick bottomed vessel and add 2 cups of lukewarm milk and mix well. Keep it on a medium flame and stir continuously till it boils well. If you allow to boil for five to seven minutes, it looks like a thick kheer. Pour it on a tray or plate.
Allow to set for 30 to 45 minutes. Then using a sharp knife cut it into desired size pieces. You will get approximately 20 pieces.
Note: You can pour the mixture into small bowls and when set, turn it down and remove the pudding.
