So how did I find it out this time- on my favorite blogs- Aparna’s My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba’s Passionate about baking, they participate almost every year! The mad dash to the finish line began at around 5:45 pm this evening. Nutella had to be put to good use- and it had to be done quickly enough!
Borne out of this mad rush- Tapioca pearl- nutella pudding!
1/2 cup tapioca pearls, soaked in water for about 30 min
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup almond milk, vanilla flavor
1 cup Nutella
2 tbsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pistachios, reserve some for garnish)
Cook the tapioca pearls in water, almond milk mixture until it turns translucent- it took a good 20 minutes and keep in mind- you have to stir almost constantly (while I was cooking dinner, the wise-guy was aced the art of mindless, mechanical stirring and in the end claimed he had made the whole thing!)
Once the tapioca is cooked, take off the heat- add the extract, nutella and pistachios.
Transfer to individual serving bowls, refrigerate it for about an hour.
Serve with the pistachio garnish!
Not too sweet- all the goodness of nutella and my favorite tapioca in one pot! And all this in a day of frenzied rush…now that is how much I love Nutella.
