Semolina chocolate Pudding / Chocolate Kesari


           Hearty Janmashtami wishes to you all.Today's post will be bit longer n i m sorry for this n thanking u all for reading this ......I want to share some happiest moment in my life on this festive n happy occasion.2007 Janmashtami/Sri Krishna Jayanthi was so special for us.It came on Tuesday, September 4.

Before marriage i was a PCOS patient ie i was having poly cystic ovaries -both my ovaries were in cystic condition n i was taking treatment for about 1.5 years.and my Doctors were told that pregnancy is more diffiuclt in my case n i need more treatments n if necessary surgery is also recommended.This was my condition before marriage n I told this to my "H" before our marriage itself...
           Soon after my marriage we came here, n on 3 rd (month after marriage)  i got  missed periods n i was shocked that again i got the problem n thought i never become a mom in my life n i was crying for the whole day. Next day my H brought pregnancy test kit n i done a home test which was negative.Again we went to to near by open clinic n there also they did urine test with the kit n said it was Negative n I told the Dr. about my problem(poly cystic ovary) n she referred a gynecologist ..And also she said that pregnancy qualitative test was negative but will go for quantitative test n took my blood sample.Then next day was Sunday n Monday was labor day n she told me call on Tuesday(sep,4) till Monday i was so disturbed ,tensed n over excited..i didn't sleep ,eat n was fully thinking about the result.On Tuesday i was so eager to call the doctor's office ...morning itself i finished my prayer n prayed god that at least for next Janmshtami i should get pregnant n i want kutty krishnar at my home ASAP. They told to call us by 2 pm. n i called the nurse told me that my blood report was Positive n told to get the report by evening.....hoooo...i was speechless n i got tears on my eyes...All my Prayers were answered... n called my hubby to convey this happiest message.Yep,that Lord Balakrishnar came to our home ,that was my boy - Sanjay. Not only one Krishnar came home - 2 kutty krishnar(sanjay & Akshay) came in to my life, always keeping me busy,roaming here n there @ home ,doing lots of mischief. Today also they are the  first to taste the Prasadham :)
              Now coming to this recipe,Semolina chocolate pudding i tried this after seeing Ramya's Cracked wheat n milk chocolate pudding. I loved it n i want to try but i don't have cracked wheat in hand ,then with further reference from the net i made this semolina chocolate pudding.this is so quick n really a kids delight. My kids enjoyed this chocolateee dessert to the core. Now off to the recipe.

Ingredients
  1. Semolina    1/4 cup + 2 tbsp 
  2. Milk     1 and 1/2 cup
  3. Sugar   1/4 cup or less
  4. Cocoa powder    1 and 1/2  tbsp
  5. Cardamom powder   a pinch or u can replace with cinnamon powder
  6. Nuts  for garnishing 
Method
  • Mix cocoa powder with 2 tbsp warm water n keep aside.
  • Dry Roast Semolina/sooji in pan for 1-2 minutes or till aroma comes.
  • Bring milk to boil ,when it starts boiling add semolina slowly and mix without dumplings.
  • When it gets pudding consistency ,add sugar n mix well and stir till sugar dissolves.
  • Then add the cocoa mixture and mix well.Cook till the pudding starts leaving the pan.
  • Lastly add the crushed cardamom and mix well n  turn off the stove. If u want can add vanilla now.
  • That's it delicious semolina chocolate pudding is ready. Serve warm or chilled.
  • It tastes best when chilled!

Notes:
Instead of cocoa powder you can also add melted milk white/dark chocolates.
You can also add half tsp vaniila extract to the pudding.

  6. I can truly understand Sangeetha. I was so dependent on steroids for my wheezing problems I never thought I had a chance of becoming a mother but I guess it is God's grace that now I am proudly a mother of 2 boys who are exceptionally clever that I feel so happy upon seeing their achievements. God bless Ur family on this happy occasion.
