Serradura

24 Jun

https://mefoodatarian.wordpress.comI haven’t been sharing many desserts, I have heard many people confuse ‘desert’ as in a barren land with soil or sand which is pronounced as ‘De-zert’ with desserts pronounced ‘Dee-zerts’…oh well..I have an entire post on my other blog for this discussion. But my point is I had to share something interesting and easy since I have mentioned in my earlier posts that Indian desserts are a little complicated. Although I love ‘Shira’ and recently I discovered how easy it was to make my own serving in a microwave…oh the lazy body inspires my lazy mind to play tricks and I am truly happy with the result. I will share the recipe soon. But let me share this one, it is my favorite and I consider it as an exotic dessert even if it is so simple to make. Serradura is basically a cream dish layered with crackers or biscuits. I am not sure if it is originally a Portuguese dish or Italian but what matters is it is delicious. It is an indulgence I admit, but once in a while is okay I guess. The serving glass in the picture is pretty big, you can use small ones.

Tip: You need not add sugar since it has condensed milk. Also, you can have many versions by adding nuts, chocolate sauce, marshmallows, Oreos, get creative with it.

All you need:

  1. 8 oz. Heavy Cream
  2. 1/4 cup condensed milk
  3. 1 sleeve of  crushed crackers (plain)
  4. 1/2 cup crushed cashewnuts
  5. 1 tsp vanilla essence

Ready, Set, Go:

  1. Whisk cream in a bowl until smooth and add vanilla essence, condensed milk and whisk just once again to combine everything nicely and chill for about 20 minutes.
  2. Crush cashewnuts and crackers separately, in a ziploc bag with a rolling pin or roughly chop them into small pieces. Combine.
  3. Take a serving glass. Pour about two tablespoons of mixture and then layer it with the crushed cashewnuts and crackers mixture. Layer again with cream mixture, topping the layers with the crushed cashewnuts and crackers mixture.
  4. Chill for an hour and serve cold.
