Especially in a country like India which is known for its huge population of vegetarians, it is essential to find an option that meets the requirements of such a large population. This is where Agar-Agar comes in handy. Because of its fabulous gelling properties and on account of being vegetarian, agar-agar is great for setting different types of Indian desserts that need that quality.

Thandai Mousse is the perfect combination of western and Indian flavors.

Caramel Custard
Caramel Custard ( Eggless)

The growing popularity of vegetarianism is really putting Agar-Agar on the forefront. Moreover, it gives a better texture than gelatin post setting. One of my most favorite recipes to make with this is Caramel Custard as it is the perfect amalgamation of sweet, sticky and glossy. Apart from custards, it is used to set pies as well, the most delicious one being a Lemon pie with a Chocolate Crust.  The fluffy and light lemon pie is set over a sweet chocolate base to cut through the lemony flavor!
