Festivals are a time to rejoice, to meet the dear and near ones and to give selflessly to the needy and to your dear ones. Food is the best gift or charity you can do for anyone. During this Eid I want to remember all those suffering hunger and war and am contributing what I can for this cause. I request everyone of you give a thought to this matter and do what you can from your side. Every bit counts.
More than a decade has passed since I’ve started making this dessert. One of the easiest, mess free, no cooking pudding I’ve made. I keep refining every time I make it. It all started with nestle cream as the base. Cream and biscuits, what better way for us to celebrate a festival. This is a damn simple recipe which can be whizzed up under 30 minutes. Different creams with biscuits and coffee as the mains balance the whole pudding to a dreamy level.
Kids are the lot who are going to enjoy this pudding to an extended height. My kids just love this. Whenever I prepare this and keep it for setting in the fridge, it never gets to complete the setting time as they start demolishing it in time. This might help you all to get an idea how this pudding will taste once its prepared. No no, dont think of the cake cream frosting. Its nothing like that. This one is airy, light and smooth. The rich and strong coffee helps to cut short that extra creaminess. You can also add biscuit crumbs for that crunchiness.
I initially started making this with nestle cream and icing sugar. Every time I kept refining it with more and more of my unique ideas :)). This newest version which I have been making for quite sometime is a super duper hit. The fresh whipping cream gives that punch and also balance the extra rich nature of the Nestle cream. The dream whip gives the airy texture and binding factor to the dessert. I have used condensed milk to sweeten this up as this will give that added milk yumminess to the whole pudding.
Nescafe gold coffee is a coffee powder which blows your mind due to its aroma. Its also strong in nature. Coffee flavor in the biscuit and the final sprinkling of coffee is the item which balances this whole dessert cutting across the sweetness and richness of biscuit pudding. I have used fairly strong decoration for this pudding. But it always depend on one’s personal preference. The final sprinkling of coffee lets you get that bitterness which get highlighted thus allowing to equate the pudding to a wholesome balanced texture and flavor.
For working mom’s like me who does multi tasking on a regular basis, this pudding is a relief as we can prepare it in minutes without any complications. So this Eid I choose to entertain my guests with this yummy delicious rich dessert. I hope you all will do the same.
Happy Eid to all my subscribers and viewers in advance.

In a mixing bowl, combine all the creams and condensed milk. Whip till joined well. Add the vanilla and whip further to a creamy nature.
Chill in the freezer for half an hour or you can blast chill it for 15 minutes. Take out and whip to peaks and thick.
dip the biscuits in coffee and layer in the tray. Spread a layer of the cream, around 2 inches in height. Repeat the process once more. Set in refrigerator for 2-3 hours until firm.
Sprinkle the coffee on top before serving along with chocolate curls.
