Home / All Recipes / Indonesian / Puding Lapis - Layered Pudding
Last updated: Feb 25, 2016 — Published: Feb 25, 2016 — By: Anita — 9 commentsFun Indonesian layered agar-agar dessert with coconut milk, coconut palm sugar, and the fragrance of pandan leaves. Vegan friendly and gluten-free.
In Indonesia, all agar-agar creation are called pudding. The texture is more similar to jello than American style pudding, though not quite exactly like jello too, since our pudding is firmer and not chewy at all. And the good thing with agar-agar powder is it is made from seaweed, so it is vegetarian/vegan friendly. The Swallow Globe Brand agar-agar powder is what we always used, but it is difficult to find in the US, so I have been using Now Foods agar powder which you can buy online from Amazon.
This puding lapis is one of the most basic pudding recipe we have, and it is not difficult to pull of. The basic ingredients for the two layers are exactly the same, except that one is made with water, while the other with coconut milk. If you have no confidence to create the multi layered look, you can always just create a simple two layers, it will still look very pretty, and just as delicious. :)
