There is a creaminess, velvety feel in the chocolate pudding and tastes too good after it sets. the recipe uses cocoa powder which is easily available than cooking chocolate in India. So this is not a very rich version, but good enough to enjoy chocolate cravings. I have shared few more tasty recipes made with cocoa powder like:

  1. Choco lava cake
  2. Brownie recipe

If you are allergic to dairy or a vegan, then use almond milk, gmo free soy milk or rice milk to make the pudding. Instead of corn starch which is used as a thickener, you can even use arrow root flour or tapioca starch. The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.

Serve this egg free chocolate pudding as a dessert.
