Matcha or green tea powder in Japanese has become popular ingredient all over the world. You can name a number of different bakery or coffee shops which are selling their goodies/beverages with matcha included. Not only the good taste but the healthy effect of green tea is the reason why green tea is so famous.

I was so tempting to make this dessert for so long and I didn’t remember anymore until the CAM Boga case. CAM Boga is a publisher who published few cookbooks by using Indonesian foodie bloggers’ pictures without permission. This publisher used green tea pudding picture of Indonesian women magazine, Femina.

The original recipe was posted at Femina-Online. Due to the lack of ingredients, such milk and heavy cream in my pantry and too lazy to go out, I substituted for sweetened condensed milk and skipped the sugar. I also didn’t make the sauce as directed

Matcha Pudding
recipe by Femina, modified by me

1 L water
7 g green tea powder (I used the organic green tea powder)*
1 package (7 g) of agar powder
1 cup (250 ml) sweetened condesed milk

1. Combine all ingredients, except green tea powder.
2. Separate two mixture into two small pots.
3. Add green tea powder into pot 1 and bring to a boil at medium heat, stir occasionally.
4. Prepare moulds by rinse off with cold water, then add the boiling mixture into the moulds. Set aside.
5. Meanwhile, bring pot 2 into a boil and stir occasionally. When the green mixture has set, add the white mixture into the moulds. Fridge them until ready to serve. You can serve with almond cream sauce as well.

*If you don’t have matcha or green tea powder just use sencha (green tea leaves) then grind.

  6. Wahh.. Looks so greeatt.
    Where can we buy the matcha powder in jakarta?.
    I tried making matcha pudding, but the matcha seems separated, and lay at the bottom of the cup.
    Any suggestions?

  7. Hi there, I haven't been to Indonesia for more than 5 years. Honestly, I don't know where to get in Jakarta. I was thinking places such as diamond supermarket, carrefour and ranch market would have it.

    If you whisk enough, there will be no powder on the side or bottom of the cup.
