How to make a raw-vegan (no cooking) Malabi pudding?

+1
−0

I want to make a raw vegan Malabi (also named Muhallebi).

A Malabi's firm "pudding" can be made by cooking corn starch with water and/or some vegan milk, but, I seek a totally no cooking version of a Malabi pudding.

How to make a raw-vegan (no cooking) Malabi pudding?

I don't ask for an exact recipe, just to know what can bring about the "firmness" of the pudding without cooking.

Disclaimer: this is only a partial answer because I have not tried these suggestions.

In essence what you're asking about is vegan hydrocolloids which don't require heating. I don't think that the vegan requirement rules out any plausible candidate except gelatin. For low-temperature hydrocolloids, we consult a standard reference on hydrocolloids in cooking by Martin Lersch. We want cold dispersion and hydration, which filters down to:

  • Guar gum
  • Konjac glucomannan (although you'll want specialised stirring equipment for that one)
  • Low methoxyl pectin (requires calcium ions - check which vegan milk substitutes include them)
  • Sodium alginate (probably won't give a good texture with too much calcium, but with milk substitutes that may not be a problem)
  • Xanthan
  • Or some mixture of the above

I suggest reading the sections on those hydrocolloids yourself to decide in which order to try to obtain and test them.
