  4. Dear Maria..

    I tried making this pudding.. i think i messed the china grass.. can you please explain how to actually go about it!!


    • Hi Ayshu,

      The pudding may not set if the china grass used is kinda old. Apart from that I’m not sure why it happened.

      Hope it comes out well next time.


  5. Hi Maria,

    This is a really nice pudding. I make a variant of this one at home where in, i heat sliced pineapple, with some sugar added, until the water from the pineapple evaporates. Then I add some grated coconut to this. The above mousse is added on top of this layer before placing to set.

    Good one again!!


    • Hi Surya,

      Thank you :) I also make a similar one. I’ve posted the recipe in the blog also. The link to that recipe is there in the above one.


  6. Maria… I happened to visit this site… Very good site… Will let u hv detailed comments once I have tried your recipe…Keep up the good work…


    • Hi Geeta,

      Thanks a bunch for your wonderful comment. Hope you will try the recipes & like it too. Would love to hear your feedback :)


  7. Hi Maria,

    Your pudding looks great but i should try this once. Do you have the receipe of caramel pudding? I would like to know how to make it with pressure cooker. If we are using microwave oven should we preheat and bake as cake or just microwave it? PLease let me know.


  8. Hi Maria…congrats on the delicious site…tried your china grass pudding…it came out very well…and the topping added the extra crunch…thanx for the recipe…looking forward to more…

  9. Hi. Just wanted to know which coconut should i use . The dry one or wet one. And can i add rose water in it if yes how much.

    • Hi Natasha,

      I used freshly grated coconut for this recipe.

      I havent tried adding rose water yet, but I guess its ok, if you like its flavor. May be you can add around 1/2 – 1 tsp of rose water.


  10. I want to make this pudding. Can you please help do you measure 10 gms china grass strands. Like in cups or tablespoons…thanks in advance for your help! Great site btw!

    • Hi Vandana,

      I’m not sure whether I replied to you earlier. However if I havent, I’m so sorry. I missed your comment somehow :(

      I usually get china grass bars here and each bar weigh 10 gms, so I havent measured it in cups or spoons. However I did a small google search and found that 2 tsp china grass powder is approximately equivalent to 10 gms china grass strands. Hope this helps…


    • Hi Divya

      I havent made the pudding with china grass powder, so am not sure about the exact measurement in terms of powder. However I did a quick search in google and found out that 10 grams of china grass strands is equivalent to 2 tea spoon of china grass powder.

      Hope this helps. If you make the pudding with the powder, please let me know the result, so that I can update it here, thanks.

  11. instead of china grass u can use jelatin.Make the custard,and then let it cool .For 2cups of custard ,1tb jelatin is enough .Messure the custard and add jelatin.

  12. Hi Roopa

    You can use gelatin instead of china grass, but I dont know whether the quantity of gelatin required is same, also the method might be different since gelatin is usually melted using double boiling method. I will try to get some more info about this and let you know.
