Chocolate Pudding

 

Chocolate puddings are a class of desserts with chocolate flavours.Yummy in taste,it completes your meal.Here is a simple recipe to make eggless chocolate pudding.You might thing it can be called a mousse.But,there’s a slight difference between the pudding and the mousse.Mousse is the cousin of Pudding.

Sweet pudding is a semi-solid, creamy, sometimes dense dessert that can be served warm, chilled, or at room temperature.It is traditionally made with a mixture of milk and sugar, that’s cooked and thickened with cornstarch. Less traditionally, rice, tapioca, chia seeds, and even gelatin are used as thickeners in some recipes.The pudding is cooked.

Mousse is the lighter, fluffier cousin of pudding. Its lighter texture comes from whipping air into the mixture. It gets its airy consistency by folding whipped egg whites or whipped cream into the base mixture. The traditional mousse starts with a base similar to pudding, minus the cornstarch, to which beaten cream or beaten egg whites are folded in.Unlike pudding,the mousse is not cooked.

This recipe will have 4 servings.
