Swiss Roll Dessert…

This one is quite a treat. For those on a diet or strictly into healthy eating, please look away now. It’s a perfect dish to indulge in for a sweet tooth like me! (Come on, we are allowed cheat days aren’t we? I’m putting up my “I’m a Mummy, and my Baby has been a monster today” cheat card!)

This recipe was given to my mother from a friend and when I was back in the UK, and I used to absolutely devour it. It’s a comfort dessert like no other, and eleven months into motherhood, I really need one f these!!

So let’s get started! A full list of ingredients is at the end of this post if you wish to succumb to this heavenly delight.

First, mix together the corn flour, falooda powder, milk and condensed milk into a pan and bring to boil. It should have quite a thick consistency.

Cut chocolate swiss rolls and arrange them at the bottom of a glass dish.


Pour the boiling mixture over the swiss rolls, just until they are covered.l

Add sugar to the whipped cream and make your whipping cream.

Once the mixture has cooled, spread a layer of whipped cream on top. The swiss roll and mixture layer should have almost solidified.

Lastly, garnish with grated chocolate!

Pop it into the fridge to cool for some time, and then it is ready to enjoy!


– A pack of chocolate swiss rolls

– 2 tbsp Corn Flour

– 2 cups Milk

– 2 tsp Falooda Powder

– 3/4 tin of condensed milk

– Whipping cream

– 2 tbsp Sugar

– Grated chocolate (to garnish)

Note: I have mentioned an ingredient called Falooda powder which might not be recognisable to you if you are not Indian/Pakistani. Falooda is a sweet drink that is enjoyed with icecream. To make life easy, companies have created Falooda powder to create the same concotion. I suppose you can liken it to a packet of Cup a Soup. (Don’t use that as an alternative though, it isn’t the same thing!) You can find these packets at any Indian grocery store.
