|Jhola gurer (Liquid Dates Jaggery) Pudding|
Nolen Gur or date palm jaggery (slightly smoky in colour) is a delicacy of any Bengali household food in winter. Visit any sweet shop in Bengal in the winter season and you will get variety of lip-smacking delicacies made with this jaggery, like - Moyas, Rasogollas, Sandesh, Jalbhora, Kanchagolla and many. But today I made egg pudding with liquid dates palm jaggery.
We all know caramel egg or creamy pudding is a classic French dessert made of simple ingredients like milk, egg and sugar and it’s very common recipe for all. Today I prepared egg pudding with Liquid Dates Jaggery(Nolen gur / Jhola gur) which is something different form the regular pudding recipe or any nolen gur recipes. I hope your kids are going to fall in love with this proteins and calcium rich dessert.
1 ltr mik
100 ml Jhola / nolen gur (Liquid Dates Jaggery)
Boil 1 ltr of milk in a heavy bottomed vessel on medium flame and reduce it to around ½ ltr. Then cool it down to room temperature.
Now add eggs, nolen gur and milk in your blender and blend it to make a smooth mixture (you can also use a hand mixture to make the mixture). Now grease the baking pan with butter. Then pour the egg mixture in the baking pan
You can make your pudding in two ways, on your burner or in your oven. I made it in the oven. Making on the burner: Take a saucepan large enough to fit your pudding pan. Take some boiling water in the saucepan (take such an amount of water so that when you will place your pudding pan in the saucepan, half of the pan will be under the water and the pan will not float in the water. You can use a stand to keep the pan steady). Now place the pudding pan in the saucepan and cover with foil both the pan and then keep it in medium heat for around 40-45 minutes (occasionally check the water of saucepan; add more water if needed).
Making on the oven: If you want to make the pudding in your oven, preheat your oven to 350 F, then in a large baking dish, pour 1-2 inches of water and place the pudding pan in it. Cover with foil your pudding pan and then place the pan in the preheated oven. Bake it for around 45- 60 minutes.
Check your pudding with a knife or toothpick. Insert it into the pudding; if it comes out clean then your pudding is done. If it seems still liquid or sticky, keep it on burner or in oven for another 5-10 minutes and check again.
When pudding is done keep it to cool down. Then carefully run a knife along the edges of the pan, place a plate on the top of the pan and flip the pan to take out the pudding on the plate.Your pudding is ready.
