Chocolate Pudding

Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Chill Time: 2 hrs
Makes: 1 cup

200 ml milk
1-2 TBsp cocoa powder
2 TBsp sugar (adjust)
1 TBsp Custard powder / cornflour
3/4 tsp Vanilla essence
2 TBsp grated milk/dark chocolate
1 TBsp Nuts (optional)

  1. Melt the chocolate in Microwave or using double boiler method*
  2. In a bowl, take 1/4th of the milk & add sugar, cocoa powder & custard powder / cornstarch
  3. Mix well into a smooth paste
  4. Heat the remaining 150 ml milk in a large bottomed pan
  5. When it starts to boil, add the custard mix to the milk
  6. Constantly keep stirring it on LOW HEAT so as to not form lumps. Slowly, in about 2-3 minutes, the mixture will start thickening.
  7. Add the melted chocolate to the mixture & thoroughly mix it all up.
  8. Switch off the flame when you have reached the desired semi-thick custard. I added some butterscotch nuts & mixed (Mayonnaise like texture)
  9. Fill your bowl/glass with the pudding
  10. Cover & chill for around 2 hours or until set
  11. Dust some cocoa powder & decorate with nuts / fruits / whipped cream & enjoy your bowl of chocolaty paradise!

  • If you don’t have custard powder, substitute with equal amount of cornflour / cornstarch & add a small spoon of vanilla extract
  • Avoid cooking on high heat as it may form lumps or lead to scorching. Continuously stir the pudding. Good exercise for your arms!
  • While stirring, stir throughout the pan to incorporate any deposit at the bottom of the pan that may be burnt if not paid attention to
  • Preferably, use a heavy bottomed pan that makes the stirring easy
