  • Persian Pudding
  • Pound cake- 1 (sliced )
  • Dried rose buds- for garnishing

(NOTE: The quantity of corn starch can be adjusted depending on how thick the pudding should be. I kept it medium thick)

How to make:

  1. Let’s make the pudding first. In a sauce pan ,boil milk in low flame. In a bowl, add the egg yolk and granulated sugar. Beat till it turns to a creamy texture.Then add rose water and continue beating.After 2-3 minutes, add cornstarch and beat for another few minutes.
  2. To this creamy mixture, pour 3-4 tablespoon of warm milk and mix well. Later pour this mixture to boiling milk (low flame) and stir it gently to a thick texture. It will take at least 6-8 minutes to get the thick consistency.Once it is done, switch off the flame and let it cool at room temperature.Persian raspberry mini trifle

  4. Later fill the serving glasses with Persian pudding and top it with the raspberry mixture. And top it with another layer of pudding to the top.Persian raspberry mini trifle
