Mousse Pudding with Stewed Pineapple and Praline

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Though we celebrated, I didn't cook much this time…I outsourced everything for a change :)The only thing I made was mousse pudding with stewed pineapple and praline. Mousse pudding is nothing but china grass pudding, it's very basic stuff and easy to make. I've posted the recipe of mousse pudding in the initial days of my blogging and I wasn't able to put the picture that time. Moreover I used to have it without pineapple those days, so am just publishing the modified version.

You can see the mousse pudding recipe here.

Here is the recipe…

    • Hi Sminu,

      Thanks a lot for trying the recipes from here. It happened to me sometimes that the pudding didnt set, when I used agar agar (china grass) and I figured out lately, that it’s because I used agar agar which was nearing expiry…

      Hope it comes out perfect next time :)


  2. hi maria chechi . .
      Had a small party @ home so tried this pudding yesterday. Everybody loved it!!! I didnt have any coconut so i omitted the coconut layer and replaced it with grounded peanut bar layer. Rest i followed your recipe as it is and it was yummy!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!!

    • Hi Jaz,

      You are welcome! Great to know that the pudding worked out well for you. Ground peanut bar sounds interesting, I like peanut flavour. Next time, I’ll try it and see :)

  5. hi maria ….
    i’m searching for china grass but nt been able to it newhr …can u plzz help me …whr wud i find it in india ……

    • Hi Meghna

      I think china grass should be available in all major supermarkets. You may also get it in powder form. Where exactly are you in India?

      If in case you cant find any, you can make this pudding with gelatin too.

      Hope you could find it soon.


  6. i tried ur receipe , was tasty , came out well , but 1 problem , the moose pudding was not so soft, ie the texture was too thick. nalla katti , anthanavo?

    • Hi Neemol

      Thanks for trying out the recipe. Sorry for the delayed reply, I was in India for my vacation,thats why.

      Regarding the texture of the pudding, am not very sure why it became thick, may be the china grass was not melted completely. Anyways let me check whether there could be any other reason and will let you know.

      Take care
