People often plan what they’re going to do for New Year’s Eve. Many often tell me about awesome concerts, cool parties and in Dubai, they also tell me about being stuck in traffic (yes on NYE).
I’ve never done any of these things on the 365th (or 366th) day of any year. Most of them I spend at home with my family. Earlier it used to be because they wanted me to be at home (reason given was that I was too young), and now I stay out of choice.
It was odd – last year I was in London at this time. Know what I chose to do? Both my flatmates were off on holiday…and I sat in my pajamas, switched my heater on and watched a movie and listened to drunk people screaming down my central London street.
This year I wanted to go for a tweetup at Bu Qtair but decided against it at the last minute – it was the thought of being stuck in traffic that dissuaded me.
My Mom decided to make banoffee pie. She was in India in December and was at an uncle’s house for dinner, who is quite an awesome cook. He made banoffee pie and gave her the recipe.
She made it on NYE and we ate it quite happily. Hope you enjoy making it and munching it too! Have a FooDee-licious year ahead 🙂
Mom’s NYE Banoffee Pie:
- 1 tin condensed milk
- 8 digestive biscuits
- Softened butter or margarine
- 2 bananas
- Cream (Dream Whip) 1 sachet [Can also use Nestlé Cream or fresh cream sweetened with sugar and whisked]
- Milk (amount according to cream prep)
- Chocolate powder for dusting or sprinkles
- Take tin of condensed milk and put it in a pressure cooker (make sure you fill enough water in the cooker). Cook it for 15-20 whistles. The milk has now become toffee.
- In a baking tin/serving dish, crumble the digestive biscuits and mix the softened butter into those crumbs and make a base by patting it down tight.
- After the tin is cooled, open up the cooker and take out the toffee.
- Spread this over the biscuit base.
- Cut the bananas and arrange on top of the toffee.
- Make the whipped cream and apply on top.
- Stick this in the refridgerator to cool.
- Once it’s cold enough, dust chocolate powder or sprinkles on top. Serve cold.
