If the title – Cardamom Saffron Rosewater Custard – doesn’t make your stop in your tracks and “ooooo”, nothing ever will.
Then again, it is a heck of a title, so you may just be exhausted. BUT – when you wake up, please do the whole ooo-ing thing. It really will make me feel better. There’s a bit of creepiness that just happened there, but I’m just moving right past it.
When most people think of Indian desserts, it’s inevitably the amazing treats like gulab jamun, ras malai, kheer, and so on. But any good Punjabi will tell you custard is where it’s at! The Brits came, colonized, and rightfully so, were eventually kicked to the curb, but luckily they left us with a love for custard.
Sweet, creamy, decadent, and yet still light, it’s the BEST thing you could bring to the dinner table this summer…or any summer. It’s a must do Indian dessert and everyone will tell you that they have the best custard recipe. Or worse, they’ll tell you it’s impossible to make and to go powdered mix – DON’T DO IT! It’s shockingly easy to make and customize to flavor you want. Don’t like cardamom, try cinnamon, hell, try basil. That said, if you’re in a rush, I do have a powdered custard powder recipe I really love – Mango Lime Custard.
This is by far one of my favorite Indian desserts and Indian recipes! I like to use custard for – filling donuts, mixing in fruit, or even baking it into a cake. Cardamom Saffron Rosewater Custard for the win people!
God I love a good custard! Check out these beauties:
