MARIE BISCUIT PUDDING: GUEST POST BY USHA MOHAN

MARIE BISCUIT PUDDING: GUEST POST BY USHA MOHAN

My friend, Usha Mohan is a very gracious hostess and her table is impeccable. When she called us over the other day, she delighted us with a pudding which we loved so much that I had to ask for her recipe. There was a crunchy layer on top under which the pudding had a yummy cocoa and coffee flavour. What better way for her to share it than as a guest post.

 Marie Biscuit Pudding.  Any other biscuit of your choice too can be used.-- Digestives, Oreos.
 A very simple and easy recipe, which can be made in a jiffy and enjoyed.


 


Ingredients:


  • Marie Biscuits, 1 packet
  • Milk, 500 ml
  • Suger, 6 tbsp
  • Vanilla Custard Powder, 3 tbsp
  • Cocoa Powder, 3 tbsp
  • Instant Coffee Powder mixed in 1/2 cup of water, 1 tsp
  • Nuts and chocolate bits, for garnishing.

Method: 

Mix instant coffee in hot water, dip the biscuits in it and arrange them in a serving tray.
Make a paste of Cutard Powder and Cocoa in 1/4 cup of cold milk, ensure that no lumps are formed
In a separate pan, add the remaining milk and bring to boil. Add the sugar to it and stir.
When the milk starts to boil, turn the flame down and add the paste made out of the custard powder and cocoa.
Keep stirring till it starts to thicken which will just take a couple of minutes. It should be of pouring consistency.
Pour it over the arranged biscuits.
Garnish it with crushed Marie Biscuits, chopped nuts and chocolate chips. 
Keep in refrigerator to set.
Happy eating:)







Thank you, Usha for this delicious dessert.
