Pineapple white pudding

This is the recipe of an eggless pudding, which is prepared using milk and condensed milk. Here the base layer is prepared by mixing butter, pineapple preserve and biscuits. I had used homemade pineapple preserve for this pudding. Those who do not have pineapple preserve may substitute it with pineapple jam. If you pack the base layer tightly, the biscuits won’t float on the top when the custard is poured. I love to see few biscuit floating on the top, so I had not packed the base layer tightly.

There is a little bit of work in this pudding as we have to prepare the custard and also need to double boil the chinagrass at the same time. Make sure that the custard is not boiled. You have to only heat it. Then add chinagrass to the custard.
