One more pudding dish to satisfy the appetite of kids on Saturday. My kids are currently enjoying their favourite Youtube show.
I already prepared the pudding in the refrigerator to surprise them. My kids like chocolate sauce like any other kids. So I hope they will like it.
This is a simple dish that doesn’t ask for a lot of ingredients. If you have the custard powder, then it is simple and easy. I added the palm jaggery as I like the flavour. If you prefer the custard sauce to be in yellow colour, avoid palm jaggery. Add raw sugar instead.
If you like adding fresh fruits to the pudding, make some more custard sauce. Add chopped fruits and nuts. Pour this on top of the pudding and serve immediately.
- Bread slices-8
- Milk-2 cups
- Custard powder-3 tbsp
- Jaggery or Sugar-4 tbsp
- Cardamom powder-1/4 tsp
- Chocolate sauce-5-6 tbsp
- Sliced almonds-10 or almond flakes-2 tbsp
- Toast the bread. Chop the bread into small chunks.
- Meanwhile, add custard powder in a small amount of cold milk.
- Boil the remaining milk in a pot and add sugar.
- Add the custard mixture and mix well.
- Cook for few minutes until it becomes thick.
- Turn off the heat and keep the custard sauce aside for cooling.
- Use baking paper to cover the pan. Layer the bread pieces. Pour the custard sauce and level it.
- Now, add the chocolate sauce and sprinkle the sliced almonds.
- Layer the bread pieces one more time.
- Pour the remaining custard sauce.
- Add the chocolate sauce and level it in the refrigerator for 8 hours.
- Steam the bread in a steamer for 20 minutes.
- Once the pudding is cool enough, decorate with sliced almonds.
- Serve chilled for better taste.
- Toasting makes the bread dry. It absorbs the custard better.
- You can use cooking chocolate or normal milk chocolate instead of chocolate sauce.
- If you like the almonds without skin, soak in hot water for 5 minutes. When it is cooled down squeeze the nuts to remove the skin.
- I am using a stovetop steamer. When you steam the pudding in the steamer, cover the lid with a cloth to prevent the water droplets from dripping into the pudding.
