We are making vegetable curry with rice and need a dessert to go well with it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Not authentic but a rice pudding cooked in coconut milk (cardamom opt) and chilled in individual portions is lovely with fresh fruit at the table. I had it served with passionfruit -lovely.
Keep portions dainty after a full curry meal!
I had it several times in Indian dish. It refreshes the mouth and takes away the the lingering of the spices from Indian curry and clear the hotness away from a spicy Indian dish.
It's a little sweet by itself but a scoop of kulfi with some fresh 'tropical' fruit is absolutely delicious!
I would go with Caramel Custard.
One easy option would be "Phirni".
The basic difference between Phirni and Kheer is that in Phirni the rice isn't cooked. It is simply soaked in milk for about 2 hours, and then it is ground to a fine paste.
While the remaining milk is cold, rice paste mixture is to be added to it and stirred properly.
It will be ready in "5" minutes when you put the vessel (containing the mixture) on the Gas with medium flame.
TIP: The mixture is to be stirred "continuously" when on Gas.
