Mango Pudding

I don't usually test pudding mix unless it's been tried and tested. This one I was introduced to at a party two weeks' ago, and I kinda liked the taste. It is cooked with evaporated milk thus there was a nice flavour to it. I added cubed mangoes to push it up a notch. The next time I try this out again, I shall add a few drops of mango essence. I didn't follow the instructions on the package which said to use 3000ml. Instead I cut it down to 2800ml so that the end result wouldn't be too watery like the one I had tasted earlier. I love this firmer texture.

I'm not sure where else you can find this, but I was told that it is sold in Sheng Siong and that was where I got mine. One packet makes a whole pot. You do need a big pot. There are many flavours to choose from.

The picture above shows the plain pudding without addition of evaporated milk. The picture below has additional evaporated milk added just before serving. I made this dessert when my friends came over for brunch today. Right beside the pudding is creme caramel which M brought. It's also made from an instant mix you can get at Phoon Huat. It was a bit too sweet.

Glad that my friends enjoyed their little lunch today and I had fun cooking for them. :)

I see this brand all the time but was not tempted to buy, now with your recommendation, I just might..but it's a lot of pudding with that amount of liquid, right?

Nice to have you back writing *wink*

It's ok for me, but not sure if it will be up to your standard. Yes, it is way too much so might be better for when you have a party.
