Serradura – Easiest Pudding Ever!

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
  • Biscuits
  • 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
