Biscuit Pudding ~ Amma's special!

Biscuit Pudding

I first heard about this pudding from a good friend KK.I remember so well,he said he had tasted a yummy pudding made by his friend S and it was simply out of this world.I asked him about the ingredients and he said it had Marie biscuits and chocolate sauce.Well,I was not going to attempt this just with his suggestions so I dropped the idea and completely forgot about this.Thank God for small mercies-call it co-incidence or anything,S happened to be my hubby's first cousin!!Can it get more merrier than that?

Biscuit Pudding
I decided to ask S for the recipe first thing when I met her.I was casually telling amma(m-i-l) about this and she asked-"you mean chocolate pudding with marie biscuits?,I make it quite often,in fact S actually follows my recipe"...WOW!!!She made it for me the very next day and I almost finished off half of it.It tasted simply divine..Yummy!!!
 

The best part of this pudding is,it really requires very little time to prepare.Make it,keep in the fridge for chilling and eat it-yes,it is as simple as that!!Amma makes it a point to make it everytime we are in Bangalore coz she knows I look forward to it;-).Thanks ma..!!I am posting it today for exactly that reason.Amma is celebrating her birthday today and what better way to wish her with her signature dish..??!!I have made it many times but I love the one that she makes!!This pudding finds its way whenever there is an overdose of milk or marie biscuits and what better way to polish it off in the form of a pudding..??!!;-)

  35. DIPPING THE BISCUITS IN DECOTION IS MUST?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I've seen recipes where you dip the biscuits in milk,so if you don't want coffee flavor,go ahead with milk!

      Delete
  36. We used to make something really similar in our school days! I studied in a boarding school in dehradun: full of rules, and we weren't allowed b'day cakes! SO, we saved all our morning biscuits (we got these really yummy biscuits with milk in the morning), dip them in illegally-sneaked in coffee decoction (EXACTLY!) and layer them in someone's tiffin, after which we would layer it with chocolate fudge and last weekend's saved up dairy milks and kitkats!

    It's a small world :)

  37. Hi Divya, I came across your blog as I searched for simple recipes. I am completely ignorant in cooking matters, yet I have become an addict of your blog and look forward to your emails due to the simplicity of methods described. I was extremely excited when I saw this recipe as it certainly looked really delicious yet simple. I tried this recipe two days ago. Unfortunately the pudding I made was really, really watery. I am not sure where I went wrong. Can you please advise? Great job on maintaining this blog, Divya :)!! Thanks, Divya.

    1. Hi Joyce,thank you for the lovely words of encouragement.So sorry to hear the pudding recipe didn't work for you.Pudding becoming watery could be because of three reasons-did you use full fat milk?did you add the said amount of cornflour and did you cook it for the time specified?I am sure you will get it right,keep trying!

  38. hi divya... i made this pudding last week.. it was so easy yet yummy... a very good dessert after meal... my son liked it a lot & asked me now to make it again but i dont have marie biscuits right now so postponed it tomorrow... marie biscuit is the perfect choice as other biscuits would turn mushy when dipped in coffee decoction... coffee really enhances the flavour a lot.. i personally love the coffee smell very much...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Just love ur blog... I've bookmarked several recipes to try... Tried this one over the weekend for dessert after lunch, and it turned out to be yum. The mixture was slightly loose, and hence the biscuits pushed up, however, after setting, it became nice and creamy and at the end, the result was yum!!! Thank you and keep up the good work!!! :)

  44. Hey Divya, This is Zarine, Ajay's classmate from school, if you remember I had written a while back here:-) I made this three times in a row and it was a big hit. It even reminded me of tiramisu! (I know it sounds like a stretch). Once I made the mistake of cooling it in the fridge overnight and it was a bit dry, but still very good.

    Please do pass on my warm regards to Ajay!

    1. Thank you Zarine,I remember you!Yes,this is one of Ajay's moms masterpiece dishes and gets a thumps up every time I serve it during a party.Glad it is a hit with you too.If you are refrigerating the pudding overnight,cover it with a clingwrap or use an airtight container to set the pudding in.Would you believe if I said I made the pudding right after reading your comment?Have updated the pictures too,so thanks once again:)

      Ajay says a BIG Hi to you too!

    2. what a coincidence Divya! The updated pics look wonderful. You have such an engaging style of writing. Do keep up the good work and you are indeed blessed to have a supportive husband in Ajay:-)

  47. hi divya! im a regular reader of ur blog and had thought of making this pudding for a longtime...finally made it over d weekend when few friends had come over for dinner and must say the pudding was an instant hit!!!..thnx for sharing such an easy and yummy recipe :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Lovely,I had this pudding a long time back,and since then, had been on the lookout for this recipe.Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  49. hi divya,

    im using full fat milk.. do i need to change the proportions of the ingredients?? i made it twice but it wasnt setting well withe exact proportions

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not setting well is I am assuming not jiggly enough,right?Is the pudding still liquidy after refrigeration?It could be either because of the lesser quantity of cornflour used or lesser time of cooking after you add the cornflour mix to the milk.

  50. Hi Divya....well I like ur easy to do recipes and i am fond of desserts....and my kid too like them...i tried this recipe of urs and my kid really ate one full bowl and invited his freinds to share....only thing that went wrong is i felt ...though i dipped biscuits in coffee decoction and poured the liquid mix over it ...and set it in the fridge...the biscuits were still crunchy while eating.... the liquid mix of cornflour+cocoa+milk didnot get inside the biscuits and made it soggy or creamy...was it right ....though the taste was yummy... i don't know if i am wrong... what should be the biscuits consistency in the pudding...soogy or left crucnhy...pls suggest

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks Aradhana.The texture of the biscuits should be soft,not soggy but definitely not crunchy.Did you dip the biscuits fully in the coffee decoction and was the milk-cocoa mix hot when you poured it over the biscuits?I hope you try it again :)

      Delete
  51. I made this just now.. Eagerly wanted to post about it. It really turned out to be very tasty, and very easy to make. Hats off to you Divya..!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Which milk should we using for the perfect consistency? And the milk added to the cornflour is a portion of the 500ml milk we were duppose to you? :) looking forward to try :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I use normal pasteurized milk,2% fat.Yes the recipe requires 500 ml milk of which you should set aside around 1/4 cup milk before boiling and mix that with the cocoa-cornflour and make a paste.Hope this helps!
