Ingredients for Indian Cornmeal Puff Recipe

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Put the milk in a medium saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. Bring to a slow boil (205 degrees Fahrenheit on a candy thermometer).
  3. Sprinkle the cornmeal very slowly into the milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumping.
  4. Add the sugar and nutmeg.
  5. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes.
  6. Slowly drizzle the beaten eggs to the mix, stirring all the time.
  7. Pour into a greased, 8-inch round baking dish.
  8. Set dish in a pan of water and place in the center of the middle oven rack.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle of the pudding comes out clean.

Tip: Place the baking dish into a 9x9x1.5 inch square pan, but do not add the water. Pull out the oven rack and place the pan on it, and then add about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water. It's much easier to do it this way, and the pan is not as heavy or hard to move.
