Easter just got a whole lot sweeter with this traditional Portuguese pudding. Serradura, which translates into sawdust in Portuguese, is also extremely popular in Goa. This light-as-air dessert by Home Chef Roger D'souza needs just four ingredients and is very easy to whip up. So whether you make it for Easter celebrations, your next dinner part or Sunday brunch, it’s the perfect dessert for any occasion!

Heavy whipping cream or Amul Fresh Cream 1Cup or 250gms, chilled
Condensed milk 1/4 cup (adjust as per desired sweetness)
Vanilla extract 1/2 tsp
Marie biscuits 16-18

Use a food processor or blender to pulse the Marie biscuits to a fine powder that almost looks like sawdust.

Beat the chilled heavy cream in a large bowl with a blender on high speed until it forms soft peaks. You can also do this by hand with a whisk. Add the condensed milk and vanilla extract to the cream and whip it until it forms stiff peaks.

To assemble, add a spoonful of the whipped cream mixture to a serving glass. Top this with the crushed Marie biscuit powder. Continue to make alternate layers of the cream and biscuit powder, ending with the cream. Garnish the Serradura with the remaining Marie biscuit powder. Refrigerate for around 4-6 hours so that it sets well. Serve chilled.
