This dessert has three layers,and I have made it the easiest way.The base is a pista sponge,the

centre is pista custard ,and the topping is a pista jelly.All green….it is good for a festive season .

For the flavouring I used pista milk which is freely available in all markets.

So for the recipe now….l


For the sponge

2 eggs

1/2 cup flour +1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup pista milk

A drop of green colouring (optional)


Beat the eggs and sugar till frothy.Add milk.

Fold in the flour,and mix well.

Pour into a baking tin,and bake in a moderate oven for 15-20 minutes.

Ingredients for the pista custard

3 cups of milk ( you can mix pista milk and plain milk too)

Sugar according to your required sweetness as pista milk will be slightly sweet.

2 tblsp cornflour mixed in 1/4 cup water or milk


Heat the milk with sugar .Once it reaches a boil add the cornflour mixture.

It will start to thicken .Keep stirring till it is thick like custard.

Ingredients for the jelly

1 packet pista jelly mixed according to instructions in the packet.

For the assembling

Place the sponge on a dessert tray and pour the custard on top.

Keep in the fridge for minimum 20 minutes.

Pour the jelly mix slowly on top,and set till the jelly is firm.
