How to Make Bavarois

  1. For this recipe you would need 2 pans.
  2. One in which you add 250 ml milk and bring it to a boil. Till then in a small bowl add 2 egg yolks and beat them with a fork till smooth. Add sugar to it and stir it till the sugar fully dissolves. Once the milk comes to a boil add the egg-sugar mixture to it.
  3. In the second pan boil some water. (Preferably a flat pan to act as a double boiler).
  4. Take another bowl and add 100 gms chocolate and 1/4 cup butter. Put that bowl on the pan with water in it. Melt the chocolate and butter together.
  5. In another bowl take the cream and whip it with an electric beater till it forms stiff peaks.
  6. Now, take 3 small katori like bowls.
  7. Bowl 1: 1/2 tsp coffee powder, 8 gms gelatin and milk
  8. Bowl 2: dried mint leaves, 8 gms gelatin, milk, the melted butter chocolate mixture
  9. Bowl 3: Lemon rind, 8 gms gelatin, milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  10. Now in the bowl with the vanilla mixture fold 1/3 rd of the whipped cream. Pour it in the mould and set it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  11. Fold 1/3 rd of the whipped cream in the coffee flavored mixture and pour it over the already set vanilla mixture. Keep it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  12. Add the rest of the whipped cream to the chocolate mixture and pour it over the set coffee and vanilla mixture. Keep in the fridge to set.
  13. Take it out and invert the bavarois on a plate. Pour strawberry coulis around it. (Coulis is a thick sauce made from puree of fruits or vegetables.)
