Some homemade custard and a few motichoor laddoos (homemade or storebought) is all you need to make this delectable parfait. Served in pretty shot glasses, this fusion dessert has a layer of crushed motichoor laddoos at the bottom, followed by a layer of creamy custard, topped with some motichoor crumbs and sliced nuts.It doesn’t get easier than this.

a layered fusion dessert with motichoor laddoos


  • for fresh eggless custard
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (add more or less depending on your taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • few saffron strands (or 2 pinches of yellow food color)
  • To assemble
  • 5 motichoor laddoos
  • sliced nuts of your choice for garnish
  • Step 1 To make fresh eggless custard – Add the cornflour, sugar, saffron strands and 1/4 cup milk into a saucepan and whisk until the cornflour is well blended with milk ( like a lump free mixture )
  • Step 2 Now add the remaining 3/4 cup milk, vanilla essence and mix well

  • Step 5 Switch off the flame , pour the custard into a bowl and let it cool completely.
  • Step 6 If you have custard powder handy then follow the instructions at the back of your custard powder packet to make custard.
  • Step 7 To assemble – Fill around 1/3rd of the shot glasses with crumbled motichoor laddoos.
  • Step 8 Spoon the cooled custard on top.
  • Step 9 Top with a thin layer of laddoo crumbs and garnish with some sliced nuts and rose petals.
  • Step 10 Refrigerate till you are ready to serve.Enjoy!
