Hi, friends. Today I propose to jot down recipes of some Desserts..Those who have a sweet tooth search for sweets after dinner.Previously in many households after dinner, a sweet dish used to be a part of the menu. Now this practice is not very common. Today’s recipes which I have selected are Snow pudding, Paripu payasam and Chocolate pudding.
1. Milk 1 litre.
2. Eggs 3
3. Vanilla essence ¼ Tsp
4. Sugar 100 gms
5. Custard powder vanilla flavour I Tsp
Keep the milk in a heavy bottomed wok or any other pan which is wide in circumference When the milk starts boiling, lower the flame and add custard powder (dissolved in two/three tea spoons of water)and sugar. In the meantime take the eggs and break them very carefully so that the yolk does not mix with the whites. Stir the yolk and add to the boiling milk. Stir the milk. Now whisk the egg whites . till they become very fluffy.This is very important. The success of the recipe depends on the fluffiness of the egg whites. Now back to the boiling milk. “With a tablespoon take a spoonful of fluffy egg white and carefully add to the milk.” Repeat this from “to”till the egg white is over. The egg whites will flow in the milk like snow balls. The floating balls look like snow. Carefully transfer the pudding to a bowl and refrigerate.
1.Yellow moong dal ½ cup
2. Jaggery 200 gms.
3. Coconut milk 400 ml.litres(available in tetra packs or paper cartons)
4. Dried ginger Powder(sundh) one pinch
5. Cardamoms 3 or 4
6. Fresh coconut pieces finely cut 1/4 cup
7. Butter I tbsp.
Dry roast the yellow moong dal in a pan till it becomes brownish. Then boil the dal in ½ cup of coconut milk mixed with equal quantity of water.till the dal gets cooked. Now add jaggerry ,boiled in ¼ cup of water. Let this cool for 10 mts Now add the rest of the coconut milk. Remove from the fire after a couple of minutes. Now heat the butter in a small fry pan and roast the coconut pieces. Add it to the payasam. The remaining butter may also be added to the payasam. Garnish the payasam with cardamom powder.
This Payasam can also be made with green moong dal, chana dal and white beans.
These two sweet dishes are relished by every one in the family. I hope my friends will cook them and will appreciate them. Today’s write up has become too lengthy so the chocolate pudding mentioned above, is postponed for the next cookery article Till then Bye.
