This year my chickoo plant at home surprised me by giving triple the amount of fruits it usually does. As always, I shared it with friends and relatives. Still, having loads of left over’s, I was left to make good use of these beauties. I did make ice cream with a few which was a smashing hit. So this time it had to be a pudding. Our family eid milan get together of nearly 60 members was coming up as well. I made good use by trying this recipe that came up to mind. At the eid Milan lunch get together, once the dessert’s were tasted. I could see every one relishing the chickoo pudding, followed with recipe please. The best part, the small amount of left overs also vanished away in seconds with all of them wanting a share to take away. Such a simple recipe with yumminess over loaded. I have planned to try the same with other fruits as well. Let’s see the results.
