Despite having a stock pile of recipes that I wanted to try for Easter I was simply unable to try them out in time. Some recipes needed tweaking and some needed better pictures to be clicked. In the midst of it all I randomly tried my hand at making a dessert to use up some leftover condensed milk from my homemade Nutella making session - after making two batches of it I had plenty of half used tins which had to be put to better use and I came across this recipe idea while browsing on the net. I referred to a few before zeroing on the measures which are my own as I had to make use of every drop of condensed milk. Thankfully my experiment didn't fail although the dessert was a tad too sweet for my liking but I guess with some extra milk added to it, it should serve the purpose next time.
This dessert is a marvel. No wonder the Bongs are crazy over it. It is one lovely dessert to make with minimum effort and with simple ingredients! Originally a steamed dessert, you can easily make it in the oven if you have one and chill it overnight if you have a party the next day. Seriously, I love make ahead desserts, its just one less thing to do the next day. Plus, who doesn't like chilled desserts? While the term 'dessert' brings to mind the fancy western delights like mousses or cheesecakes or puddings or flans this one is as desi as it can be. If you skip the flavouring, all you need is milk, condensed milk and the most important and humble ingredient - yogurt (curds as we call it in India).
