  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream - (I used Amul Cream)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons Water
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla essence


  • Take the water in a bowl and sprinkle the gelatin. Keep aside for a few minutes for the gelatin to soak up the water. In a saucepan, mix milk, cream, sugar and vanilla and boil while stirring constantly.
  • Melt the gelatin on very low heat till the gelatin dissolves completely. The gelatin-water mixture will turn liquidy as soon as it gets heated. Keep stirring. As soon as it is melts, add to the milk mixture and stir till well incorporated.
  • Pour into moulds/glass bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and refigerate for at least 3 hours till well set.
  • To serve, dip the bowls/moulds in hot water for a few seconds and tip out into the serving plate. You can serve with fresh fruits as well.
