Indian Chocolate Fudge
I have had parshad all my life and I love it. It's mainly served at the temple as a sweet sacrament at the end of a service. Actually, as a child this was the only reason I went along. Although this was supposed to be served at the end of the service, the priest (or garanthi) would happily give this to the children who kept going up to get another serving. I would probably go up about four times before getting a stern look from my mum and then after the fifth time I knew I was pushing my luck! And who can you blame me? Parshard is warm, very sweet and rather buttery - everything that is bad for you but tastes so good. Bizarrely sinful for a religious ceremony but there you go!
Serve in small glasses with a sprinkle of pistachios on top.
