Agar-agar pudding

Agar-agar is a natural vegetable gelatin counterpart. White and semi-translucent, it is sold in packages as washed and dried strips or in powdered form. It can be used to make jellies,puddings, and custards. For making jelly, it is boiled in water until the solids dissolve. Sweetener, flavouring, colouring, fruit or vegetables are then added and the liquid is poured into molds to be served as desserts and vegetable aspics, or incorporated with other desserts, such as a jelly layer in a cake.

Agar agar is a great gelling agent. Even Heston is using agar agar too! Your pudding looks great and nice to know that it is vegetarian too :D

I am not a dessert person but I am still admiring the agar-agar you made. I normally use the strips version rather than the powdered.
