India orange and rose tea

Click on the flag for the French version

Here comes a light dessert deriving from a Philippe Conticini's recipe that we have tested last week-end.

I did not have all the ingredients to make the original of it. But I had some nice others that appeal to me. Some flavors which can be perfectly associated.

I wanted to have a light and fresh dessert. Even if the weather looks like winter time actually, I wanted to have some this fresh but warm in flavor, like some Indian dishes.

After tasting : it was what I expected. A real good surprise !

I hope you will enjoy it as we had.

India orange and rose tea


4 oranges
350 ml orange juice
1 lemon juice
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
1 teablespoons rose tea (or jasmine tea)
1 teaspoons cumin seeds
1 or 2 tablespoons blanched pistachious
1 cinnamon stick
2 tablespoons suggar (optional: there is no suggar in the original recipe)

Peel totally the orange skin and take only the orange pulp
Divide among dessert cups.

Put the orange and lemon juice with the suggar into a saucepan
and bring to simmer.

Add the cornflour to the pan and stir until it thicken like a syrup.
Take off the heat and add the shredded coconut,rose tea,cumin seeds,cinnamon stick and blanched pistachious (except some of of them which should be kept for decorating)
Leave to cool.

Divide the mixture among dessert cups contaning the orange peels.
Place into the fridge for a couple of hours, until set.

Serve it fresh with little cakes.
