Indian pudding questions

Lady_Tenar | Jan 16, 201312:19 PM     14

Hello chowhounds! So, I am visiting my parents and doing a lot of cooking for them and my mom has requested that I Indian pudding. I've never made it but it's her favorite and so I would like to be able to grant this wish. Thing is, there is huge variation among the recipes. Some call for eggs, some don't (and always a different number of eggs). I'm leaning towards making a recipe with eggs, because my mom has said that the one time she tried making it, it didn't set properly (although my mom is also not a great cook, so I have to take that with a grain of salt but even so...). Does anyone have any views on eggs vs. no eggs? Also, the cooking times are wildly different--some call for 2 hours or even less, some for 5-7 hours! (The shorter cooking times are, not suprisingly, for the ones that have a lot of egg in them.) Does anyone have any insight into the secrets of a good Indian pudding? Please share and help me make my mom happy!
