CELEBRATING AWARD WITH COCONUT DREAM DESSERT

Hi friends,
 
First of all Wishing all of my readers, blogger friends and visitors A Happy New Year, 2013.

Today I am too happy as I recieved 'Best Food Stylist' award from Amila Wickramarachchi of Food Corner, for my yummy dessert AAM-RAS.
 
I am heartily thankful to you Amy for selecting my recipe and offering me this wonderful award. You made an excellent round up. I am really excited and happy today. I am honoured by you dear.
 
So friends, lets celebrate this award with a soothing and refreshing yummy creamy dessert.
 
This is a very delightful dessert, flavored and enriched with cardamom, pistachios, coconut and saffron. I saw this recipe on www.manjulaskitchen.com. Very refreshing coconut creamy treat, easy to make and loved by all. Just try and taste this aromatic vegan dreamy dessert.

INGREDIENTS:
1 Cup Coconut milk
2 Cups Half & Half milk (may use soya milk too)
1/2 tsp Crushed Cardamoms
A pinch of crushed Saffron
1/4 Cup Shredded Coconut
1/3 Cup Crushed Pistachios
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 tsp Agar Agar powder (heaped)

METHOD:
In a saucepan, boil coconut milk, half & half milk, shredded coconut, pistachios and sugar. After reaching the boiling point, let it boil for another 7-8 minutes. Stir occassionally.

Take 4 tbsps milk mixture from the pan and make it luke warm. Add crushed cardamoms, saffron and agar agar powder in it. Dissolve agar agar powder nicely.

Now mix the agar agar mixture in saucepan. Mix nicely and let it boil for another 3-4 minutes. Stir continuously, there should not be any lump. Remove from heat. Pour it into either bowls or molds immediately.

Refrigerate about 2-3 hours or till set. Serve chill as a delightful dessert.

TIPS: Agar agar powder is a vegetarian gelatin substitute, works as a stabilizing and
          thickening agent, available in Indian or Asian grocery stores.
          Those who are vegan, can use soya milk instead of half & half milk.
