♥Chocolate Marble Pudding ♥for my lovely lil cousins♥

As I have said before, I never let go of a chance of making a dessert/desserts. I just LOVE the whole process of planning what to make, how to decorate it et all. And finally when your guests relish it there is nothing beyond that :) I know you all know how it feels :)


I have my lil cousins Nikitha and Natasha visiting me with their mom. They are on their Onam vacation. But Natasha whom we fondly call as Tashu is allergic to eggs. A wee bit of egg in her food causes rashes, severe stomach ache,dizziness etc. So this time I was literally digging into my recipe diary for eggless recipes.

When we usually don't think of the limitations, we don't realise whether it has eggs or no eggs. But this time when I searched for recipes,I was indeed surprised to find many! I had quite a few eggless ones :)


And they LOVE chocolate! Especially Tashu, and since she is allergic, I thought of incorporating an egg free + something chocolate-y for them.

Chocolate Marble Pudding
Recipe source: My Mom

Ingredients

For the base:

Salted butter-100 g
Sugar-5tbsp,powdered
Cocoa-2tbsp
Water-1/4cup

Heat the above ingredients and for a thick custard on low fire.
Remove from fire and add the following:

Coconut- 1 cup,finely grated
Cashewnuts-1/2 cup ,broken

Mix it with the custard and line a pie dish with it and pack firmly.
Leave it in fridge to set while you make the filling.


For the filling:

Milk-2 tins [condensed milk tin measure]

Simulatneaously heat milk,condensed milk and sugar. Before it starts to boil,add the melted china grass. Stir continously.
Keep on fire till it starts to thicken. Take it off from fire.
Strain if lumps are seen.
Pour on top of the crust and let it set in a fridge.
For marbling:

Take 1/2 cup of condensed milk batter and mix 3-4 tbsp of chocolate syrup/sauce and drizzle them over the white layer.
Marble it using a toothpick/skewer.

This pudding has always been a hit and will continue to be so :) Every single bit of it was relished by our guests and they went back home with the recipe :)


P.S. This is an automated post as we are off to Goa on a vacation. See y'all as soon as I am back! :) Have a great weekend!!

Ria Mathew said...

Ninu- Thank you for trying! I am glad that you liked it :)

Deepal- Thank you :)

I have mentioned to take 1/2 cup of the condensed milk -batter and add 3-4 tbsp chocolate sauce/ syrup to it...Then you will get the chocolate colour liquid. Use that for marbling. You can also do it with just the chocolate sauce.

Hope you are clear, if not, drop in a comment!
