Bride's pudding!

Today is Maundy Thursday, the day of "The Last Supper". So for those of my catholic friends wondering what the hell I'm doing cooking a dessert on this sad day, I only have one excuse...it's for all you dear people! :P. Jokes apart, today inded is a really sad day for the Catholic World but the good news is that, Easter is around the corner, and our risen Lord is coming to save us all!! So, that's enough of religion in this blog...time for the dessert.

I happened to glance upon this dessert for the first time in the Manorma News Channel, and instantly fell in love with it. Dont ask me why though, coz it's a very simple recipe, nothing fancy really. The final product does look like what my 1 year old nephew would do, given some crayons and a piece of paper, but hey, i never said that I had artistic skills. Am sure you'll love this though. So, without any further ado, I present to you, the Bride's pudding....

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tin condensed milk (Nestle's milkmaid)
  • 1 litre full cream milk
  • 6-7 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 packet gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water (preferably ice water)
For the chocolate sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 5 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup water from the kettle
  • 1 teaspoon butter
METHOD
  • Soak a packet of gelatin (approx 2 tablespoons) in cold water and set aside. This should take hardly a minute to set.
  • In a saucepan, heat condensed milk, milk and sugar. Set this on low flame and stir continusously. The intention is not to boil but to thicken.
  • In a seperate pan, melt the gelatin on low flame.
  • Once the milk mixture and the gelatin mixture reach almost the same temp, pour the gelatin into the milk mixture. Continue stirring. Note that the gelatin should have completely melted before doing this.
  • Continue stirring the milk mixture till it becomes semi thick. This entire process should take 20-25 minutes.
  • Transfer the hot milk mixture to the pudding dish and allow it to cool. Once it reaches room temperature, place it in the freezer for approx 25 minutes or till it sets.
  • Once it sets, prepare the sauce. for this, mix all the ingredients mentioned under "For the chcolate sauce" in a pan and stir on a low flame till completely melted.
  • You can pour this over the pudding in a design or just coat over the pudding as a seperate layer.
  • You can also add caramelized nuts on top as an option. I did not.
Tada, the pudding is ready.

Here's the pic, but promise me you wont laugh....
