Saffron Milk Pudding

Saffron Milk Pudding  is a milk based dessert made with milk and saffron.It is very tasty and easy to make dessert for any occasion.Here I made it eggless as using gelatine I do not like egg smell in my pudding.But if you are a vegetarian person,then you can use agar agar or chinagrass instead of gelatine 

Milk-2 cups
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons custard powder
Gelatine-2 tablespoons
Hot water-4 tablespoons
2 teaspoons almond powder(grind 1/4 almonds in a mixer grinder at medium speed)
1 teaspoon rose water
1 drop kewra essence
1 teaspoon saffron


Add the gelatine sheets into a bowl,pour hot water and stir ,wait for few minutes until gelatin dissolved completely.

Take 1/4 cup milk into a bowl,add custard powder,whisk to make a smooth paste and make sure no lumps will form.

Heat rest of the milk into a saucepan by adding 1/2 cup of granulated sugar,1teaspoon saffron,2 teaspoons almonds powder.Stir and keep boiling until sugar dissolves completely.

Remove this saucepan from heat,and add custard powder,gelatine (before adding gelatine,stir it again with fork),rose water,kewra essence and stir continuously.

Again heat this mixture for 2minutes at medium flame,do not boil,just heat it.

Remove the mixture from heat and let  this mixture  be cool for 2 minutes.

Pour the mixture into each small invidiual bowl or a big bowl through a strainer, set them first at room temperature for atleast 1 hour,then refrigerate for minimum 2hours.

Before serving,take out the pudding from fridge,loosen the sides with a knife,invert upside down on a plate.


If you do not want to use gelatine then you  can use agar agar  or china grass (it is a vegeterian form of gelatin ).You have to go through the following  instructions  of using  agar agar or china grass instead of using gelatine .

5 tbsp  chopped agar-agar

Soak the agar agar or china grass in a 3/4 cup of cold water for 1 hour. Then heat on low flame until it dissolves and becomes a clear liquid.

When your custard  is about to ready then add melted china grass to the custard and mix.Boil again for 2 minutes. Strain the mixture into the mould and then follow  the upper  methods.
