BM # 74: Week 2, Day 2
Theme : Are you pudding me?
Recipe: Chia cardamom pudding
My neighbor mentioned making chia payasam for her son with all Indian flavors. She cooks chia in milk over stove top with a pinch of cardamom and sugar. Then she decorates it with cashews and raisins roasted in ghee. When you top off with saffron strands, you have a great pudding style payasam.
I liked the idea and so made something similar except that I went for the overnight refrigeration method. I skipped roasting the nuts as well since I had this for breakfast. Chia gives you the perfect pudding texture without much effort from our end ;-).
Enjoy this simple recipe that makes breakfast an extremely easy affair!
- 1/4 cups chia seeds
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon of sugar(or more per taste)
- A good pinch of cardamom powder
- Few strands of saffron
- Mix the chia with milk, sugar and cardamom powder until no pumps remain. Add the saffron as well.
- Refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled or you can microwave it for 30 seconds before serving. Decorate with saffron strands and some nuts and dry fruits.
