  • ramekins
  • deep large saucepan
  • bowl


  • 2 1/2 cups Double cream
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 5-6 tbsp Nolen gur or Khejur er Gur (you can add more or less as per your liking)
  • 5 sheets Gelatine Sheet **check notes
  • 1 Green Cardamom finely crushed (this is optional)


  • Add the gelatine leaves in a small bowl of cold water to soften – this will take about 5 mins.
  • Pour the cream and milk into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Then take it off the heat.
  • Now add nolen gur or khejur er gur and stir it well to combine. You can a cardamon powder at this point if you wish too. (I did not add cardamom as I feel it will over power the lovely nolen gurer flavour)
  • Next remove the gelatine out of the water and squeeze out the excess water, then add to the cream-milk mixture. Stir until completely dissolved.
  • Pour it in the desired ramekins and chill it the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours to set.
  • Serve it chilled with a drizzle of nolen gur.


If you are using gelatine powder use 3 teaspoons of gelatine powder in this recipe (roughly around 10 grams).
Take cold water in a small bowl, and stir in the gelatine powder. Set aside until it blooms. Then add it to the cream-milk mixture as per the recipe.
