I had zeroed down on a garlic rice recipe and a simple potato stew, as the last two recipes under the 5 ingredients or less category. Now, what should have been a post for garlic rice, is replaced with another decadent recipe!
Why? Because I tried doing things I shouldn’t have, and messed up our camera’s memory card. I have assigned (read as : bugged and threatened) Harry to fix it for me, so can’t post the garlic rice photo nor take a new one till the issue is fixed. So, here is a recipe from the draft.
I had made this a couple of months back and it was extremely delicious. Microwave makes it even simpler to make, making it all the more dangerous!
Honestly, I don’t need more calories, but I am like an ant when it comes to sweets. There is an undeniable and inevitable pull towards anything sweet. I don’t seem to have any control over it!
Makes 4 servings
- Sugar : 1/2 cup
- Cocoa powder : 1/3 cup
- Corn Flour : 3 tbsp
- Milk : 2 cups
- Vanilla Essence : 1 tsp
- Chocolate strands, few silver balls : for decoration
- Combine the sugar, cocoa and corn flour in a microwave safe bowl. Add the milk, a little at a time, and whisking so that there aren’t any lumps.
- Cook on high in the microwave for 3 minutes. Stir, then cook again for 2-5 minutes – keep stirring in between at one minute intervals. The pudding is done when its shiny and thick.
- Add the vanilla essence or extract and a tbsp of butter (optional, I didn’t add) and refrigerate once it’s cooled down. Serve cold. Decorate with chocolate strands and silver balls.
