Rajgira/Amranth powerhouse of nutrition :

Rajgira/Amranth/Amaranth or Ramdana is known as power house of nutrition. In addition, it’s calcium rich grain and gluten free too.

Fasting friendly Eggless Rajgira Crème Brûlée Recipe:

Wanna try something new with our good old Rajgira during fasting? Try this creme brulee in it’s indian avtaar.

Few things need to modified, if it’s been prepared for fasting days.

1. For setting up the custard, instead of using readymade custard powder or cornflour, for instance, substitute it with following :

sabudana powder/flour or kuttu flour or waterchestnut flour( singhade ka atta) or even sama rice/ flour for setting custard.

2. Vanilla essence or extract can be used or it can be completely avoided.

Above all other than making regular and run of the mill snacks or desserts like Chikki or ladoo by using Rajgira, do try this fusion and delectable dessert which is very filling.

If I don’t have Brulee torch then?

Most creme brulee recipes call for a propane torch/Brulee torch to achieve that carmalized sugar top.

But you all must be wondering how creme brulee can be made without propane/Brulee Torch 🤔?

if you don’t have Brulee Torch, don’t worry, this version offers you a simple solution: your spoon. In conclusion, don’t stop yourself, just go ahead and make this delectable a dessert.

Please watch the video i have shared for spoon trick method.

The step by step process will help you learn how to pop Rajgira and make the delicious Rajgira/Amranth Creme Brulee (eggless).

How to make Eggless Rajgira Crème Brûlée Recipe

To make custard:

Heat 1/2 liter milk in a non-stick pan, add half cup cream, mix well and heat for 2 minutes. Put 2 tsp custard powder in a bowl, add 4 tsp cold milk and mix well.

Add this custard mix to the milk-cream mixture, mix and cook till the mixture thickens.

Add 2 tbsp sugar, mix well and cook till the sugar dissolves completely. Strain the mixture so that there are no lumps

To pop Rajgira/Amaranth

Now to pop rajgira, heat a thick bottom kadai

 

To check the heat just sprinkle some drops of water on it and see if sizzling sound comes.

The sizzling sound is the indication that pan/kadai is hot enough to pop rajgira. Add 1 tsp of rajgira seeds at a time. Toss it on high flame

Cover the kadai with a lid and quickly slide the pot back and forth just above the burner. As soon as rajgira starts to pop switch off the flame and let it sit for few seconds. Take out in a bowl

Now repeat the process to get more popped rajgira this way in small batches. Sieve the popped rajgira so that unpopped ones will be left on plate. And you can reuse  by again popping it. Let it cool.

To Assemble

Now take the strained custard and put it on flame again

Add popped rajgira and mix well.

Now add grated fresh coconut

The custard mix will start to get thick

Keep stirring continuously

Switch off the flame after it reaches to desired consistency

Pour the mixture into ramekin moulds and refrigerate till set.

Add 1 tsp brown sugar on each moulds and spread it with spoon.

 

Caramelize the sugar with a brulee torch OR take a metal spoon or a spatula,heat it on your stove burner. And press it on the sugar till brown. Works like a charm!’

 

Your creme brulee is ready to serve

 

Break open the hard sugar crust and enjoy the melt in the mouth rajgira pudding underneath.
