I discovered the recipe to this awesome pudding just in time. A few days after T’s birthday I had some extra packets of whipping cream lying around in the refrigerator just waiting to be used and what a stunning use this was. You can literally put this pudding together in a matter of minutes.
The Serradura is a Portuguese/Goan concoction. The word means ‘saw-dust’. Given that there is a dusty layer of biscuit crumble, it is anybody’s guess why it’d be called so. I for one have to try the traditional Serradura on my next visit to Goa.
T just lapped it up like a little puppy. Of course though after such indulgence he did turn into a little windup monkey for a bit. ;)
Here’s what you need
- Whipping cream
- Condensed milk
- Vanilla Essence
Here’s what you will need to do
- Whip the cream until soft peaks form
- Add in the vanilla essence and condensed milk (to the degree of sweetness you prefer)
- Whip the cream until hard peaks form
- Set aside
- In a bowl, make a layer of biscuit crumble. I used a mix of digestive and ginger biscuits, though one can use any like Marie, Glucose etc.
- Next, layer the cream on top
- Repeat with as many layers as desired to whichever thickness you prefer
- Cool for a couple of hours and serve
- One could make individual portions for toddlers
Mix things up
One could use Cocoa powder for a chocolate Serradura Or use cinnamon or cardamom powder in the whipped cream to give it a spice spin
