Combine 6 tablespoons water, agar agar flakes, orange zest, cinnamon and chili powder in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until agar agar dissolves, 7 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

Combine milk, cream, sugar and salt in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves. Whisk in cocoa powder. Add chocolate chips and continue to whisk until the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Stir in agar agar mixture and cook for 5 additional minutes.

Meanwhile, dissolve kudzu in remaining 4 tablespoons water, stirring to form a slurry. Whisk into milk mixture and cook until mixture thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Place a fine mesh strainer over a large measuring cup. Pass pudding through the strainer to remove any lumps. Pour pudding into individual ramekins and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of chili powder.


For a dairy-free pudding, replace the milk and cream with a 14-ounce can of coconut milk.
