Pudding

Pudding is a type of food that can be either a dessert or a savory (salty or spicy) dish that is part of the main meal.In the United States and Canada, pudding characteristically denotes a sweet, milk-based dessert similar in consistency to egg-based custards, instant custards or a mousse, often commercially set using cornstarch, gelatin or similar collagen agent such as Jell-O. The modern American usage to denote a specific kind of dessert has evolved over time from the originally almost exclusive use of the term to describe savory dishes, specifically those created using a process similar to that used for sausages, in which meat and other ingredients in mostly liquid form are encased and then steamed or boiled to set the contents. Black (blood) pudding and haggis survive from this tradition.In the United Kingdom and some of the Commonwealth countries, the word pudding is still used to describe both sweet and savory dishes.
