After shocking most of my blogging friends and causing fainting spells on at least one of them 😉 with my previous post,
Brain Fritters ( I am striking it out, lest she be reading it and god forbid faint again), I decided to make it up to them by bringing in a dessert 🙂
I call this a lazy man’s dessert because there is nothing much to do. You just need to have a couple of things in your pantry/fridge and start assembling . In no time, you have a beautiful dessert ready. Absolutely no cooking or standing in the kitchen(This recipe was shared by my sweet sister-in-law ). I was out of town last week and I had to host a party for my hubby’s cousins who had flown in from LA, on the day I returned. I didn’t have much time for an elaborate dessert, so I whipped this up.
What you need to have:
- 1 tin of mixed cocktail fruits
- 1 cup of any fresh fruit chopped ( bananas/apples)
- 1 liter Vanilla icecream
- 1 large packet milk biscuits crushed
- 1 tin Rasgullas (easily available at all Indian grocery stores)
- 100 g Sweet chocolate grated
Rasgullas are soft spongy balls made of cottage cheese and soaked in a chilled light sugar syrup. So just take the rasgullas from the tin and gently squeeze out the syrup from each one of them and place them in a big mixing bowl. Break them into small pieces with your fingers. Add the crushed biscuits and fruits. Mix them all.
Add the slightly softened, but not melted ice cream. Transfer this mixture into a serving bowl. Top with some crushed biscuit crumbs , grated chocolate and some cherries. Keep it in the freezer. Take it out of the freezer an hour before you want to serve. Enjoy this cool and delicious dessert…..
