Serves : 4-6 persons
Full cream milk : 2 litres, *I have used Amul Taza full fat milk
Fream cream : 2 and half cups *I have used Amul Cream
Cream of tartar : 1 teaspoon, *Readily available in supermarkets/ online
Powdered sugar : 1 cup
Rosewater / Rose essence : 1 teaspoon
Pistachios : 3 tablespoons, chopped
Almonds : 2 tablespoons, chopped
In a large stainless steel bowl mix the unboiled milk (directly from pack), fresh cream and cream of tartar. Stir in well for 2 minutes and refrigerate overnight.
Just before you are ready to serve the chaat, stir in 1/2 cup sugar and rosewater or essence. Whisk the mixture using an electric beater at high speed. You will notice a foamy layer gathering on top of the mixture. Now collect the foam that forms on top of the mixture using a spoon or ladle and transfer to a serving bowls.
Sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top and garnish with chopped almonds and pistachios. Serve immediately or else the foam will begin to condense.
