For the Custard:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 tbsp Custard powder (I use Brown & Polson brand)
  • 2~3 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp Ground Cardamom

For the Praline Topping:

  • ½ cup Pecans, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup Walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Honey or Light Corn Syrup

Other Ingredients:

  • 8~12 Gulab Jamun


Make the Custard:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together custard powder and ¼cup of milk.
  • In a medium heavy bottom pan, combine the remaining milk and sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil, lower the heat and stir in the custard powder mixture. Stir continuously and cook on low flame until the mixture starts to thicken, about 2~3 minutes.
  • Let he mixture cool completely. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

Make the Praline:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  • Combine nuts, brown sugar and honey in a small bowl. Mix well to make sure that the nuts are evenly coated.
  • Place the nut mixture on the baking sheet. Bake for 7~10 minutes or until the sugar is caramelized and the nuts are toasted. Stir them once in the middle. Remove from the oven onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
  • Once cooled, break the praline into small pieces.

To Assemble the dessert:

  • Divide the custard between serving bowls. Add warm jamuns in each bowl and top with the chopped praline. Serve immediately!!
