You can use fresh or canned pineapple. If using canned pineapple, drain the liquid and chop the pineapple into small pieces and proceed with the recipe.

If using fresh pineapple, take a really ripe Pineapple, clean and cut it into small bite size pieces. Set aside.

Cloves and pineapple are made for each other. Cloves enhances the taste of the pineapple. Take 2 cloves and grind it in a blender with 1/2 a cup of sugar to a fine powder. Set aside.

Add the pineapples, sugar mixture and water and bring it to a boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes. Remove off heat and set aside. If you have got the time, rest the pineapple mixture over nite in the refrigerator. The flavors mature and tastes much better. If you do not have the time, proceed with the Pineapple Pudding recipe.

Note: If the pineapples are not cooked enough, the pudding will curdle later. Be cautious and cook the pineapples well. You can also add canned pineapples too.

A note on CHINA GRASS / AGAR AGAR

China Grass sets at room temperature. So boil it only after getting everything ready. You cannot prepare this in advance and keep it for use later. Once you boil the china grass, it needs to be added to the pudding mixture immediately.

Soak a packet (10 grams) of agar agar / china grass in water for 10 minutes.

Boil the soaked agar agar / china grass mixture on medium flame until completely melted.

Now mix the milk mixture, agar agar mixture and the pineapple mixture together. Make sure everything is slightly hot. If you refrigerated the pineapples, boil it briefly on low flame for a couple of minutes. Agar Agar sets at room temperature. So its important that everything is slightly hot to achieve smooth texture while it sets. Pour it in the dessert cups and cool Pineapple Pudding in the refrigerator for 5-6 hours.
