My blog turned a year old a few days back and I didn’t realize it though I had been looking forward to the blog birthday for quite some time. My absent mindedness sometimes surprises (even) me. I know firsts are supposed to be really special. They deserve careful planning and mindless partying. But I feel extremely lazy at the moment. My bed, blanket and TV remote call out my name in increasingly honeyed tones. So, to mark the occasion I decide to try out a very simple semolina pudding recipe my parents sent me. Then, I shall jump into bed, some pudding in hand, prop myself against some pillows, and watch “Lie to Me” on TV (that man has too much energy, he needs to take a nap, he really does).
- Boil the milk with semolina and sugar thick it thickens a little over a low fire.
- Take it off fire, and stir in the condensed milk and coconut milk.
- Let it cool.
- Separate the egg whites and yolks.
- Beat the yolks lightly with a fork.
- Add it to the milk mixture and mix well.
- Pour in the essence as well.
- Beat the egg whites well. Fold into the above mixture.
- Pour into prepared pudding moulds, and either bake at 180 degrees celcius for 40 to 45 minutes.
- Else cover and steam for about 30 to 35 minutes.
- Let the pudding cool, and keep covered in refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours or till the pudding is cold.
- Cover the pudding mould with the serving plate and turn over. Tap the mould lightly, and remove it.
- Pour some condensed milk over the pudding and serve.
