Chilled Masala Chai Mousse#Foodieextravaganza

This festive post Christmas dinner dessert, created with one my favorite drink.. masala chai.. yes that exactly what you are reading. 
Its so easy light on the tummy and also gives you that sweet kick that you want after a heavy Christmas meal.

Cup Measurement = 200 ML
For The Tea

200 ML Water
2 Tablespoon Masala Chai Tea Leaves
2 Cardamoms
4 Tablespoons Sugar or to taste
200 ML Milk
For The Mousse
32 Glucose biscuits - grind to a powder
100 Grams Digestive Biscuits - grind to a powder
1 Tablespoon Melted Butter
1/3 Cup – Fresh Cream
½ Cup – Milk
1½ Cup – Whipping Cream

In a deep pan on medium heat, add water, cardamoms and let it boil, when it comes to a boil add sugar and tea leaves, let it boil again for 2 -3 minutes, then add milk and let it comes to a rolling boil 3 to 4 times, then take it off heat and strain to get a clear tea. 
In a shallow pan, heat cream and milk place it on medium flame and let it start to boil, keep stirring continuously, then add glucose biscuits powder, it will firm up, not to worry, add the tea and stir to break all lumps and keep breaking the lumps, once the mixture is nice and smooth take it off heat. Let this cool completely. 
In a bowl take the powdered digestive biscuits and mix in butter, mix until all the biscuit powder is well mixed. In a round ring mold place the biscuit – butter mixture, flatten it out and then refrigerate it until ready to use.
In a bowl, add the whipping cream using an electric whisk, whisk the cream until they form stiff peaks, then add cooled tea-biscuit mixture and whip until they have completely incorporated. Pour this into a piping bag and refrigerate it for 1½ hour to cool properly. 
Then pipe the mousse on top of it of the biscuit base. Again refrigerate it overnight. I made three servings, one in a glass and two in rings.
When ready to serve ,garnish with some icing sugar and cinnamon powder. I had leftover pourable chocolate icing used this on top. 
Enjoy chilled!!

My Notes
You can use any biscuits without cream like digestive or Marie
The mousse batter was just too much for us, we are just two and the sweet tooth one is my hubby. So with half the batter I made a pudding cake. Keep check this blog space for the recipe, will link it as soon as I post it.
