Paan and Rose trifle jars- easy to make yet incredibly delicious and so so pretty and colourful! It's the perfect festive dessert for Diwali and can be made in advance too.
It's vibrant, decadent and bursting with the flavor of paan and rose!
I am so excited for Diwali, love the whole festive vibe around this time of the year. There's just so much to do during Diwali and if you have to spend less time in the kitchen then nothing like it. This festive dessert comes together easily and literally in no time. All the ingredients are store-bought and it requires no cooking or baking and only effort required is to whip the cream. After that it's just a matter of assembling the dessert together.
Instant chocolate and date ladoos which I shared last Diwali have fetched such amazing reviews from my readers. Strawberry and orange rabdi also has a very interesting twist and can be spooned on pretty much any dessert like gulabjamun, rasgolla, jalebi etc. Even Pistachio and yogurt cupcakes with cardamom frosting are a great Diwali bake.
Soft vanilla sponge is soaked in rose water and then layered with paan and rose flavored whipped cream. I have combined mukhwas with gulkand for the bottomm layer which provides an amazing crunch to contrast the soft cake and fluffy whipped cream.
I love fusion desserts and this dessert is a perfect example of how you can combine western and Indian flavors together. It is beautifully aromatic with the flavor of paan and rose!
This dessert can be made 1-2 days in advance and is perfect for hosting Diwali party or really any other party too.
