Biscuit Pudding

Biscuit Pudding
While doing winter de-cluttering and organising, I found a few packs of biscuits. Although biscuits do not tend to get wasted, I wanted to try some dish with them. I chose biscuit pudding and when looking up recipes, I learned that it is rather popular in SriLanka. I have adapted Tarla Dalal’s recipe here...

1. some people who do not like coffee may prefer to have he biscuits dipped in milk rather than coffee
2. replace dark chocolate with milk chocolate if you prefer

12 Rich tea biscuits or Marie biscuits
1 tablespoon instant coffee powder
5 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoon custard powder
1 ½ cups milk plus 3 tablespoon milk
100g dark chocolate, melted
Grated nuts for garnish

Dissolve coffee powder in hot water. You need enough water to quickly dip the biscuits in it. Dip the biscuits very briefly then break them into pieces and put in individual serving bowls

Dissolve the custard powder in 3 tablespoon milk

Heat the rest of the milk until it is just about to boil. Now add the dissolved custard powder and make sure you stir well. Cook on low flame until it coats the back of the spoon.

Now add the sugar and melted chocolate and stir well. It will thicken but still be of pouring consistency.

Pour this on the biscuit and garnish with chopped nuts
