chocolate-mousse-recipe-eggless

I wanted to try this chocolate mousse recipe without egg or gelatine, and at last tried with agar agar(china grass) as substitute for gelatine. This is the first time I am handling agar agar. This recipe is great for get together/potluck or serve it to please your guests. You can make it in advance and so need not worry about dessert part.For past two days I was craving for something chocolaty and thought of buying brownie from my favourite shop,but after I tried this, this was perfect for me to enjoy.This is my 250th post too, so this is a celebration postParty!!

Chocolate mousse (eggless) recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Dessert
Prep Time: 50 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 6

Ingredients


Milk  2 cups 
Coco powder  1 & 1/2 tblsp 
Corn flour  1 & 1/4 tblsp 
Sugar  4 tblsp 
Dark chocolate(optional)  3-4 tsp 
Agar agar(china grass)  2 tsp 
Cream  3/4 cup 
Vanilla essence  1/2 tsp 


Method

  1. Take 3/4 cup of water in a pan and sprinkle the agar agar in it. Keep a side (20-30 mins) I used agar agar powder,so it dissolved easily.
    cm1-horz
  2. Mean while dissolve coco powder and corn flour in 1/4 cup of luke-warm milk. Boil rest of the milk with sugar.
    cm3-horz
  3. Add the coco-corn flour mixture to the boiling milk with continuous stirring. Boil for 2-3 minutes with constant stirring.
    cm5-horz
  4. Heat the agar agar dissolved water and bring to boil. It will be thickened and like a transparent jelly like thing.Add it to the chocolate mixture and mix continuously. Switch off the flame and keep stirring until its almost cooled down. (Stirring is to avoid formation of a layer while cooling down).
    cm7-horz
  5. Mix in the cream(I whipped the cream a bit in a blender with the whipper blade) and vanilla essence.Stir well.
    cm9-horz
  6. Refrigerate this mixture to get the perfect set chocolate mousse. I did this by placing the mixture in freezer for approx 20 minutes(Don’t let it set for more time,). Or you can also pour the mixture directly to the mousse moulds that you are going to serve and set it as such in the fridge(not in freezer) until serving time.

Notes

  • I am handling agar agar for the first time and firstly while boiling it was a bit weird to me,but after I added to the custard, I could not sense the agar agar smell at all.
  • I had few dark chocolate bijjis  so added it while boiling the chocolate mixture. Even if you omit adding it wont make any big difference.
  • After you set the mousse, the texture is so soft and light.
  • If you are sweet toothed, add 1 or 2 more tblsp of sugar.

Top it while serving with coco powder sprinkled on top with some chocolate shavings or with some whipped cream,sprinkle some sugar on top or add some choco sauce. Its your choice. Yumm! Drooling

  68. Hi

    This looks really yummy... Jus had a few doubts. What is this agar agar and why should we use this? I need to make butterscotch mousse recipe. Do you have any idea about it? Would be really helpful if you can tell me about it.
