SIMPLE CHOCOLATE PUDDING (MOUSSE)





Chocolate Mousse is a very popular dessert. It tastes great and can be made in just about ½ an hour.

Ingredients

2 cups milk

2 tsp cocoa powder

6 gms agaragar or 2 tsp gelatin

4 yolks of egg

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup fresh cream

2 tsp vanilla essence

1 bar of chocolate or ¾ cup chocolate shavings

Method

First take bowl and soak agaragar in water. Meanwhile, in a bowl, add egg yolks and beat for a minute. Then add powdered sugar, beat till it forms a smooth paste and set aside. After about 10 minutes, the soaked agar agar will become soft. Drain the excess water and keep ready. Now heat 1/3 cup of water in a pan, add agar agar and cook till it dissolves in water. Once done; switch off the gas.

Then heat approximately 1 cup of water in a large pan. When it starts boiling, place the bowl containing sugar-yolk mixture over it (double boiling method). Add 1 ½ cups of milk, keep stirring and cook for 2 to 3 minutes till it forms a creamy texture. Then add the agaragar-water paste to this and mix well. Now mix cocoa powder in ½ cup milk and add to the bowl. Mix well and cook for a minute. Remove from pan, add vanilla essence and mix well. Finally add cream and beat till fluffy. Pour in cups or tumblers and refrigerate for 7 to 8 hours. For garnishing, use chocolate shavings or take a bar of chocolate and using a knife, cut it into very small pieces. Garnish on top of the set pudding. Serve cold.

Note

If you want you can also add whipped cream, chopped and roasted nuts or cherries for garnishing.

If you are using gelatin, dissolve it in ¼ cup of water and add to the bowl before adding cocoa-milk mixture.

I have used just 2 tsp of cocoa powder, if you want a very strong chocolate flavour you can add more.
