Praline Bavarian Cream Pudding

Mum regularly made this dessert from her treasured collection of recipes. It would delight anybody wanting a hint of sweet aftertaste... especially after a heavy meal.

[Serves 6]
Eggs - 3
Milk - 1 1/2cup
Sugar - 1/2cup
Gelatin - 4tsp
Whipping Cream - 1cup
Sugar (for Caramel) - 3tsp
Cashew nut Pieces - 3dsp

Soak gelatine in half cup of milk. Beat the yolks and sugar well till it turns a light yellow colour. Into a pan, heat milk and the egg yolk mixture over low heat till it thickens, and coats the back of the spoon. When it starts to thicken, add in the milk mixed with the gelatine. Take it off the fire and let it cool in the refrigerator till  it is half set, which means it would be slightly wobbly. In the meantime caramelize the 3tsp sugar into a pan. Once the sugar has caramelized, add in the cashew nuts. Coat the cashew, pour the caramel onto a greased tray. Once it is cooled, grind coarsely and keep aside.
Whip the egg whites until stiff and forms soft peaks. Fold the egg whites into the half set pudding  until well combined. Then add in the whipped cream and mix well. The pudding consistency should be creamy. Pour the pudding into bowls/ ramekins/ or into a shallow dish and let it set in the refrigerator. Top the pudding with the coarsely ground praline while serving.
