Two Easy And Tasty Pudding Recipes

Pudding is a sweet that has acquired different meanings and recipes in many regions. The word “pudding” is believed to come from the French word “boudin” and originally from the Latin word“botellus,” meaning a small sausage, since encased meats work as a major ingredient in puddings made in medieval Europe.

In the present times, it can be relished either as a dessert or a savoury (spicy or salty) dish included in the main meal in many parts of the world. A dish that can be enjoyed as baked or steamed or boiled pudding in the United States and Canada characteristically denotes a milk-based dessert similar to egg-based custards, mousse, or instant custards.

In India, puddings are prepared in the form of kheer and custards. If you would like to prepare one at home, here are two easy and tasty pudding recipes.
