Corn Pudding

Sumptious desert ;)
That got infected by anemia, and that explains why it looks pale and doesn't have the usual yellowish colour. I guess it is one of the most simple recipe I have ever tried and it will no even take you more than half an hour doing it, provided you have all the ingredients ready. Here are the ingredients needed. You should get two medium sized container of pudding for the amount below.
  • 1 can of sweet corn
  • 1 liter fresh milk
  • 130gm custard powder/corn flour
  • 150gm sugar
You can use more custard powder/corn flour if you feel the mixture is not sticky enough, while the amount of sugar can be toned down if you are on a strict diet.
  1. Boil 750ml fresh milk with sugar in a pot under low fire.
  2. Mix the custard powder with the remaining 250ml of milk.
  3. Pour the custard mixture into the boiling milk in the pot.
  4. Add in sweet corn and stir continuously for about five to ten minutes to avoid it getting burnt.
  5. Transfer it into a container and leave it to chill in fridge for a couple of hours.

A closer view of the pudding, which I think it somehow has a tad resemblance to cheese.
It is super simple, isn't it? And the reason why my pudding didn't have the yellowish colour is because I did not use custard powder like I am supposed to. I substituted it with corn flour because I hardly see any supermarkets here selling custard powder. The truth is that I actually bought the wrong thing during my first attempt of making this pudding because I got myself a packet of corn flour, instead of custard powder, although it was written on the packet that is was custard. And when I asked one of the supermarket workers there, his reply to me was, "What is custard? A kind of drink?" =.=
Putting that confusion aside, I used creamy corn on my first attempt ealrlier, and it looked more yellow than the one above, which had undergone a total makeover from the initial one. I guess you will never wish to see how my first attempt looked like.
