Custard and Pomegranate jelly shots....

My kids dont like custard but when it is served in such a fancy way they just cant stop asking for more. I just tried giving our plain old custard a grander and more welcoming look. Presentation is important and especially when it comes to food and more when you serve dessert .... oh yes it is so true. And when you know you are dealing with kids then giving them such simple yet wonderful looking desserts to win their hearts. My kids just love them and I cant say more

The recipe is very simple and takes very little hands on time. Try giving this a shot and impress your loved ones. 

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Milk - 1 cup
Custard powder - 1 tbspn
Pomegranate juice - 1/4 cup
Water - 2 tbspn
Sugar - 2 tbspn
Gelatin - 1/2 tspn
White chocolate - for garnish

Here is the stir....
  • In a small bowl add 2 tablespoon of milk and custard powder. Stir well so that there are no lumps

  • Boil the remaining milk 
  • Once the milk comes to a boil add sugar to it
  • Now add the custard powder mix to the milk 
  • Keep stirring for about 2- 3 minutes on low flame till the mixture turns a little thick
  • Turn off the flame and let it stand for a few seconds while you arrange the glasses to pour them in
  • Pour custard into short sized glasses filling 3/4th of the capacity
  • Keep this in the refrigerator and let it chill. It will about an hour to set the custard 
  • After about an hour pour 2 tablespoon into a saucepan and add a tspn of gelatin to it and give it a good stir

  • Let this sit for about 5-7 minutes. This is called blooming the gelatin
  • After 5 minutes put this on the stove with low flame on. Keep stirring till all the gelatin is dissolved
  • Turn off the flame and let it cool to room temperature before proceeding further
  • Pour the pomegrante juice into the saucepan and give it a good stir. To know more about making the jelly or to get step by step instructions for making the jelly checkout the manjo jelly here and replace mango juice with pomegranate juice
  • Take out chilled custard from the refrigerator and pour pomegranate jelly on top of it to form a thin layer. This adds colour and look to the dessert
  • Put it back in the refrigerator again to let the jelly set
  • Just before serving, garnish with some white chocolate strips or leaves
  •  I have just melted chocolate and spread small spoonfullsit on parchment paper. Spread it using the back of a spoon to give the shape. Place the parchment paper in a curved place to help the chocolate take that lovely shape
  • Serve chilled and enjoy with your loved ones

                                                  • You will need only a little pomegranate juice so put a few seeds in a strainer and crush the seeds using the back of a flat spoon
                                                  • Adjust sugar to suit your taste
                                                  • You can use white chocolate strips to garnish for a cute look else you can also use a few pomegranate seeds
