3-2 oz ricotta cheese(or an equivalent amountt of freshly made Paneer)
10 oz powdered Confectioner’s sugar
2 small packets Half and Half
1 tsp powdered cardamom
1/2 tsp rose water
2 tsp slivered almonds
2 tsp chopped pistachios
6 cups water
3 cups sugar


If you are using the Ricotta cheese,
mix together the confectioner’s sugar and cheese.
Spread on a baking dish and bake in a moderate oven for about 1 1/2 hrs till the cheese turns light brown and loses all moisture.
Take it out and let it cool.
When cool, shape into small flat balls.
If you are using paneer, mix the paneer and sugar and shape it into flat balls.
Bring the water and sugar to a boil to yield sugar syrup.The syrup should not be too thick.
Insert the balls one by one in the syrup and warm them up. They should become spongy.
In the meantime, boil the half and half with the rose water.
Set aside.
Add the cardamom and nuts to the half and half.
Mix well.
Add the cooked balls to the half and half.
Let it stay immersed for about 1 hr.
You can either chill it or serve it at room temperature

1 round 8″ pound cake
1 JELLO packet of your choice of flavor
1 cup orange juice or your favorite fruit juice/cocktail
4 tbsp custard powder
8 cups of milk
4 tbsp sugar
1 cup of whipped cream (I use Cool Whip)
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tsp powdered sugar
1 tablespoon chopped nuts(almonds, walnuts, etc)

2 cups of chopped fresh or tinned fruit (apple, banana,
papaya, orange, watermelon, strawberry, peaches, etc.)
6-8 candied cherries for decorating


Take a deep glass dish.
Put the pound cake in the dish and gently pour the fruit juice over it till the cakeis completely soaked.
Let it sit for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
Prepare the JELLO as per the directions on the packet.
Spoon the jello over the cake before it sets (i.e as soon as you add the cold water to it)
Leave this in the fridge to set for about one hour.
The jello will not be completely done yet.
Meanwhile prepare custard by boiling the milk, adding the custard powder dissolved in a little milk and then adding sugar.Stir continously.
The custard is ready when the whole mixture thickens.
Take it off the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
Divide the custard into 2 equal parts.
To one part add all the fresh vegetables and mix well.
Take the glass dish from the fridge and first spoon over the plain custard layer over it.
Then spread the fruit custard over it.
Sprinkle the chopped nuts.
Whip together the powdered sugar, whipped cream and the essence.
Spoon this over the custard and nuts.
Decorate with candied cherries.
Chill for about 45 hours.
The jello will now be completely set.
Cut into slices and serve as dessert.
