    I was recently in Shibuya and had the most wonderful sweet potato pudding (Im calling it this) that was not overly sweet and had a very creamy texture. I had communication issues with the wonderful Chef whom said their was no egg in the mixture – just sweet potato and Kanten or agar agar. Have you ever made or had this? The pudding stood up on its own and was very very good. Any help appreciated.

    1. Hi Greg, there are lots of Japanese desserts that do not require eggs. It may, however, have had other forms of dairy such as cream or milk to give it that pudding like creaminess. Kanten (agar agar) is a wonderful ingredient that allows liquids to coagulate (much like gelatin). Hope this helps! 🙂
