I was intrigued when I came about this recipe on a Korean food show. Researching further, I learnt that posset is a cream-based lemon pudding, which finds its root in British cuisine. It is a rich and decadent dessert that uses only 3 ingredients; heavy cream, sugar and lemon.

Without any thickening agents, this pudding sets beautifully as the acid from the lemon reacts with the mix of cream and sugar, thickening the mixture like a creamy mousse or a pudding if you like.

To my Indian palate, it tastes like a velvety smooth ‘shrikhand’ with few differences. Its more mousse like texture as well as creamier with a sharp lemony note.  In my recipe, I have added saffron for that unique aroma and flavour which pairs perfectly well with masala milk powder adding texture to a silky-smooth posset.

However, you can pair any of the following combination to make it customizable to your taste.

  1. Any berries
  2. Mint and lemon zest sugar
  3. Mango and chili
  4. Diced apple with cinnamon
  5. Crumbs of pistachio biscotti
  6. Or any other combination of your choosing ?

It is perfect party dessert as you can make it in advance, looks beautiful served in shot glasses and needs only 10 minutes of your time. I would also suggest checking out my post on the posset tart with a salty kick! You will love it!
