Nutty Crunch Surprise




This delicious dessert is associated with my childhood memories. It was an Eid day ,when my Mom made this for the first time. It was so delicious that the guests were blown away by the flavor. The texture was awesome too. She don't remember the source of the recipe now,whether a magazine or a tv show, but we never forget to bake this once a while for our kids.








Ingredients
        Note: 
* Nuts can be either almonds, pistachios, walnuts,hazlenuts or anything, but not roasted or salted. I used a combination of almonds and pistachios -both 1/4 cups each.

Eggs 4
Milk 3 cups
Nuts crushed to bread crumbs consistency...1/2 cup*

Condensed Milk 1 tin
Sugar 5 tbsp or more (according to your taste)
Bread crumbs 1/2 cup







Method


1.Boil milk , condensed milk & sugar. Turn off the flame.


2.Beat eggs nicely in a separate bowl with a spring spatula or fork(no need of electric beater).


3.Add eggs in the milk SLOWLY. You should keep on stirring the milk  while pouring the egg in it. 
Otherwise the eggs will get scrambled.

4.Mix Nut crumbs in it. I crumbed almonds and pistachios using my grinder.







5.Now, mix in the breadcrumbs.


6.You can either steam it or bake it .
---When steaming, pour this into a deep dish and steam it just as you do while steaming creme caramel.




---If baking, pour these into ramekins or any baking dish and then keep these in another pan filled half-way with boiling water. Preheat your oven and bake at 150C.

8.Bake or steam for about 20-25 minutes or until your toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Do not overbake,otherwise it may turn hard and won't taste good at all. Make sure that no bubbles are appearing at the edges. 


You can serve it as it is or top it with chocolate swiss rolls. Serve chilled.
