There are days, where I just do not feel like standing in front of a stove and cooking.
Sometimes there are enough left overs from the day before for everyone to eat, but the problem comes when it is a sweet tea time treat that everyone wants at 3 in the afternoon.
There is never any left overs of sweet things, which means that I really do have to make something.
Most times I can get away with store bought biscuits once or twice in the month a third attempt at getting my family to eat something that is not homemade is like asking them to dig from here to China…lol…
When I am really really lazy I always turn to my old faithful dessert, it is quick and easy to make and you can have a treat in under 30 minutes.
This is one of Madhur Jaffrey’s receipes, she got it from Mallika Basu in London.
- 500ml plain yoghurt
- 1 x can condense milk.
- 1 x tsp cardamom powder.
- 12 x strands of saffron soaked in 2 x tbsp. warm milk.
- Pour the yoghurt into a bowl add the condense milk and whisk until well combined.
- Add the cardamom powder and whisk again.
- Pour the mixture evenly into 6 greased ramekins, about ¾ of the way up.
- Place the ramekins in a baking dish.
- Pour boiling water into the dish until the water reaches halfway up the ramekins, thus creating a water bath for the ramekins.
- Pop into a preheated oven and bake at 190 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Carefully remove from the oven and evenly spread the milk mixture over the top of each ramekin.
- Pop back into the oven and bake for a further 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, carefully remove the ramekins from the water bath and allow to cool to room temperature before enjoying.
