Jelly Custard Cups

ย 

For this month’s Muslim Food Bloggers Challenge, the theme selected was “Ramadan Memories”. When the post is happening in the midst of this beautiful month, there is no better theme to be chosen. While generating the theme, there was only one recipe on my mind and it was “Jelly Custard Cups”.

ย 

There is nothing fancy in this recipe, it is always custard topped with jelly or viceversa. The very first time I had it was when we went to a family friend’s house for Iftar as kids. This was one of the dish served during Iftar time and I ate around two cups of it shamelessly! ๐Ÿ˜€ I am sure they didn’t mind it since I was small at that time. As fate is, this family ended up being related now, when umma’s cousin’s daughter got married to their son! I don’t have to tell you how surprised we were to see them after so many years back home. ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

After relishing it the first time, we used to insist umma to make this at least a ย couple of times during Ramadan. There is some joy in messing up the pretty red and yellow layers and ending up with a bizarre looking mixture! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just like their ummi, the girls do the same thing too now, whenever I make it! Hehe…

Instead of making it the usual way, I wanted to make it with a little bit of twist. Every time we make the custard and the jelly seperate, and then while serving, scoop both into one serving bowl. But I wanted to put it all into the same cup and serve. That is when I landed on this link, where they attribute the recipe to Australian Women’s Weekly. Oh, really? Hmm… I got to making it and as you see, my cups didn’t look at pretty as it was in the picture in the link, nevertheless, I did love how the custard settled down the cup like some strands! What more, I saved up myself of washing two extra vessels… hehe…

ย 

The quantity I made was 5 servings, but this recipe is good for 6 servings of 200 ml each. You could even make shot servings for your parties. They would look really cute! I am sure that this would be a child pleaser in every way, just like how my kids wipe up their servings each time it is made! Off to the recipe…

  6. Divide the jelly equally between all the cups.

    I had my first jelly custard after marriage at F’s home! ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL. As kids we were exposed to those jelly that comes in a cone shaped container like these days kinder joy. And that too was a treat when we are good at home ๐Ÿ™‚ I even commented on Shanaz’s post about jelly, this is more of a gulf kutties treat lol. The clicks are good, I thought it was a mirror image! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Oh Rafeeda, you’ve brought back such memories! When I was young we would go to many iftar parties where the aunties would make something like this… It would usually be a custard with some fruit mixed in and topped with jelly.

    Also, I have to admit that I’m getting a chance to check out a lot of South Indian fare through these monthly challenges. I don’t know much about it, but I’m learning and I love it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for hosting and putting this together month after month. I really look forward to participating!

      I am so glad the post woke up a lot of childhood memories… and more than South Indian, it is more of Malabar fare, which is a small area of the whole of SI… ๐Ÿ™‚ But it is more meat based so you will enjoy it… Thank you so much for your lovely comments, Henna…

    • Rafeeda AR says

      It is OK, Ruxana… don’t be hard on yourself, we all understand. Hope to see you next time, InShaAllah… Thanks a lot dear… ๐Ÿ™‚

    It comes as a big achiement when you try to save some dishes to be washed…I did check the original link where i can see some patterns made due to the mixing of two desserts. I like the way your dessert looks…so simple and elegant and the best part is two in one bowl. I am going to try this before ramadan ends and will let u know about the results

      I guess it may be the consistency of the custard to the jelly here… nobody anyway complained on how it looked, so I am fine! Hehe… Thank you so much Shanaz…
