This was the first dessert I ever learnt in my life. A friend of mine had this recipe from her sister and thats how I got to know this dish. Its easy to make and a delicious dessert that i can whip up in a couple of hours without having to work really hard. I always feel the day had been long and hard at the end of a finished dessert. I had a bite after I finished my dessert to say my Mmm… and aaah and I wanted more.
I use Part skim ricotta chees for this dessert. You can use the whole one too if you want.
1 15 oz tub of part skim ricotta cheese
1 cup of sugar ( My cup measures 160ml)
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup whole milk ( optional, instead u can use evaporated milk )
Remove the tub from the refrigerator and let it defrost to room temperature.
Once the cheese comes to room temperature, In a mixing bowl take the cheese and 3/4 cup of sugar and beat until its light and fluffy.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 375 F and pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake the mixture for 30 minutes. Do not let the mixture to brown
Test with a cake tester or toothpick as for a cake and check if the cheese is intact and no ingredients stick to the tester. Remove from heat and let it cool
Cut into equal pieces with a plastic knife slowly and gently place in a bowl. Make sure that they don’t break
Warm the evaporated milk with the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar , Do not heat too much. The milk should be warm and not cold.
Pour the warm milk onto the cheese pieces . crush 4 cardamom pods , slice a few almonds and garnish.Refrigerate until chill and serve cold.
