Puding Agar Gula Merah – Palm Sugar Agar Pudding Recipe

Puding Agar Gula Merah (Indonesian Palm Sugar Agar Pudding).

For most Indonesian children, the very first dessert they learn how to make is most likely an agar dessert.

A simple agar pudding only needs agar powder, sugar, and water. One only needs a saucepan and a spoon for the cooking utensils. After stirring for 5 minutes over the stovetop to bring it to a boil, a quick pour into molds, and 30 minutes in the fridge later, the agar pudding has set, chilled, and ready to serve.

Palm sugar agar pudding (Indonesian: agar srikaya or puding agar gula merah) is slightly more complex than the basic recipe. The addition of palm sugar, coconut milk, egg, and pandan leaves create a creamy and most indulgent agar pudding you will ever taste.

Palm sugar agar pudding is a perfect introductory dessert to introduce your friends/guests to Indonesian food. The combination of palm sugar, coconut milk, and pandan is a common theme in Indonesian sweets. Serving palm sugar agar pudding will be the perfect way to end a satisfying Indonesian meal.

Ingredients for palm sugar agar pudding

  • palm sugar.
    Please use Indonesian palm sugar. You can substitute Indonesian palm sugar with Thai palm sugar, but your agar pudding will have paler color.
    Please do not substitute palm sugar with brown sugar since the flavor will become different.
  • coconut milk
    I use canned coconut milk. You can use boxed coconut milk too, which is thinner, but the agar pudding will be less creamy.
  • egg
  • agar powder.
    I use Now Real Food agar powder. You can also use Indonesian Swallow Globe brand agar powder, but be sure it is the plain/unflavored variety.
  • pandan leaves
    You can use fresh or frozen pandan leaves. You can find pandan leaves in your local Asian grocery. It is more common to find Frozen pandan leaves in the US, but the fresh ones sometimes appear in the produce section.
