Chocolate and Biscuit Pudding

Have to get some tricks on clicks , not very happy with this pic here….

Have won prize with this pudding for a cooking competition during my college days and also this was the first pudding I  prepared for hubby after marriage but unfortunately Soccer man is not a fan of Chocolate…..WHAT ??  I thought everyone in the world loves chocolates…….
you know it takes time to get to know each other….
But it was not that hard to finish the dish as I crave for chocolates.

Ingredients

Milk – 4 cups
Cocoa Powder – 3 table spoon
Instant Coffee powder – 1/4 tsp (Optional)
Sugar – 3/4 cup (adjust according to your choice)
Gelatine – 3 table spoon
Biscuits /Crackers – 2 to 3 cups when powdered  (Approx)
Butter – 3 table spoon melted
Shaved chocolate / Chocolate pieces for topping (Optional)

Method

* Powder the Biscuits (coarse powder)  , mix it with the melted butter 😦 its important to melt as butter is used to set the base , if melted it combines well with the powder and helps it to set nicely.

Used Marie biscuits this time , but usually I make it with glucose biscuits 
* Pat the powder nicely , keep it in the freezer and the base is ready. 

*  Mix the gelatin to 1 cup milk and keep aside.

* Boil the rest of the milk with sugar and cocoa added to it. The cocoa will not get mixed initially , when the milk gets warm , cocoa slowly gets dissolved. Do stir in between while keeping it in medium heat , add instant coffee powder(if using) once the cocoa is dissolved completely.

*When milk starts to boil , add the Gelatin soaked milk to this and stir till it bubble’s up.
* Allow to cool to room temperature and pour this mixture on to the biscuit base slowly.
To make sure there isn’t any lumps , strain this milk mixture before keeping it to set. 
*Gently pour this cocoa milk mixture on to the powdered biscuit base. May use a spoon to reduce the thrust, as if poured with force the biscuit base gets dissolved in the milk. 
Need to get that two layers visible. 
*Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until the pudding is set. 
Any Chocolate lover like me will enjoy every bit of that 🙂
Enjoy with some grated chocolate on top if you like to make it extra chocolaty.

Cheers
