Does anything gets better than Chia ? Chia soaked in water or non-dairy milk, swells in 24 hours and adding some sweetener to it -KaBoom ! There you have a pudding . But, have you thought of making it incredibly tasty with some unique combination of flavors ? I mean there are hundreds of recipes with berries, mint and chocolate- but frankly they get boring after a while. I thought of fusing some Indian flavors and they came out so amazing. You all should really try these keto chia seed pudding with some Indian twist.
First things first, people not familiar with the words Blueberry ‘doi’ and ‘Chai biskoot’ in the title –
Doi is a Bengali word for Curd– often used as ‘Mishti Doi’ – meaning Sweet yogurt. The Keto Chia pudding made this way will be tangy, sweet and fun ! Make this as a “pick-me-up” !
Chai Biskoot – In a very literal sense, Chai Biskoot just means ‘chai biskoot’ – a biscuit one has with tea. But then, Chai Biskoot isn’t only about chai and biskoot. At a subliminal level, ‘chai biskoot’ is about small human interactions. Like in college, where the college canteen is invariably the focal point of existence, the tea or the lime juice is not the real reason why students hangout at the canteen. The canteen (and its tea or lime juice) is more a catalyst or a facilitator of student interaction. Similarly, for the average man on the street, the chai biskoot routine is an interface. In that sense, Chai Biskoot isn’t as much a biscuit as it is a metaphor. People craving Chai Biskoot should really try this asap ! The flavour is somewhat like Parle-G biscuits (famous biscuits/ cookies in India) Here we call packed cookies as ‘biscuits’ 😛 So, this flavour will be a Desi Cookies and Cream :p
Inspiration behind the Keto Chia seed Pudding with Indian twists-
This recipe is solely dedicated to my college days- when I did my Masters. Chai Biskoot is the only thing we could afford as a quick way to satisfy our hunger. I remember buying a Parle-G packet (Yeah G maane Genious packet 😛 ) and adding to Chai and making a pudding out of it. I still remember making this for my roommates and they used to love it. I am sure this is a recipe to keep !
About Blueberry Doi, inspiration was from my mommy – she used to whip up some real good smoothies. And nothing like fro-yos we get in the market.
FYI, you will need a list of things for making these two . That is the only way you can enjoy your Chia puddings- by putting in some effort 😛 Lets get to the recipe.
