Week 1, Day 2
Theme; Milk based Desserts
For the second day under Milk based Desserts, I have a dessert which is always in my frig. I make 5 bowls of these as my hubby wants it every day. Now why 5 bowls and why not 7 ? Well at times I serve him ice cream or some other dessert.
Agar agar is a natural sea weed and is supposed to be really healthy. It is very popular in Asian countries and is used in different kinds of desserts. It is a wonderful substitute for gelatine. I have made pannacottas with this agar agar ,salads too but my hubby likes it in this simple form. I would love to make more bowls but unfortunately no one in the house wants to eat aren’t you wondering why ? Well hubby does not want any sugar or sugar substitute in the dessert. Secondly since this is always in the frig everyone finds it boring. The day I feel like eating I add sugar to my bowl or make a caramel pudding from it. It is delicious and healthy if made with the given recipe , please add sugar 😉

  2. I think our husbands were twins separated at birth a few decades apart ? He too likes very few Indian sweets n actually prefers the with mild sugar or no sweet at all, or just prefers a bite of really bitter dark chocolate (wonder how that can be dessert !!??) ..I need to try one portion of this if he likes it

  3. This was one of the most often made dessert when growing up and gradually it has become obsolete. Don't even remember the last time I ate it. Looks good.
