Creamy Pudding

(Yalanci Tavukgogsu)

Creamy Pudding
4 1/2 cups 3.25% milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp unsalted butter

Place all the ingredients (except butter) in a large pot. Stir constantly over medium heat. Add the butter when you see the bubbles on the surface. Boil one more minute while stirring. Take it off the stove. Pour into the blender. Blend for about 15 minutes over medium speed. Then pour the mixture into 2 a Lt Pyrex dish.

Let it cool for an hour. Cover the top and place in the fridge. If you like you can sprinkle some pistachios, coconut flakes or cinnamon on top before serving. This dessert also goes well with ice cream.

Hi Binnur,

I'm sure you have the real Tavuk Gogsu recipe. Would you please post it when you get a chance? My sister M is visiting Istanbul for the summer but can you believe this, she can't find Tavuk Gogsu anywhere due to Bird Flu.

Also, now that the summer is here( sort of, where I live) & with all the fresh vegetables available, if you have a GUVEC recipe that too would be very much apprecited. Thank you for all these delicious recipes. They are a great hit with my friends.

Hi Gulacti,
It is nice to hear from you:)

Yes, I do have a recipe for the real Tavukgogsu. I'm not sure when I will post it, but if you want the recipe right away, email me and I'll send it to you.

But please try the Yalanci Tavukgogsu recipe, it is really delicious and very easy to make, it is effortless:)

There are so many guvec recipes with different kinds of vegetables. A few weeks ago I cooked lamb with some of fresh vegetables in guvec while my daughter was visiting us. It was waiting in line to be posted:) I have just put it up for you.. hope you like it.

Is this the same as in MUHALLEBI? Can you think of any reason why we should not add some ROSE WATER or fruit juice/extract to create different variations of your recipe?

It just occurrred to me that this pudding could be made in a double boiler which would then turn out as CUSTARD. May be a combination of both prep methods might come close to making this in to french pastry filling( adding eggs, of course)?

What do you think?

Would love to hear your thoughts on all this. GUVEC was very tasty. Thanks.

Gulacti, it would be very tasty, I think. Yeah why not, we can add any kind of extract, also add some fresh fruit pieces at the same part with butter actually. We can come up with tasty variations I'm sure :)

I think Yalanci Tavukgogsu reminds you of Su Mauhallebisi which is thicker than Muhallebi. I will post it soon for you, it has Rose Water in it!

With less flour and egg yolk and made in double boiler sounds like a pastry cream. Lots of great ideas, thanks :)

Hi Binnur,

I have eaten this dessert once, but it was with a lot of (fried???) kadaif on top and I think hazzelnuts... I really liked the taste.
How can I incorporate those into ur recipe.
Thanks and regards from Bosnian girl ;)

Hi Binnur,

Does the real Tavuk Gogusu include chicken breast in the ingredients and why is it called that way?

At 6:24 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

It is called Tavuk Gogsu because the original pudding has the cooked chicken breast in it:)

I tried this and thought it would be too much so made half of the recipe. I did not have a large container so served in individual portions. I was able to get 4 large dessert cups full of pudding. It is very easy to make and low fat. I will reduce the sugar next time. It was actually not too sweet at all but I prefer milk desserts to be even less sweet.

It is very simple to make, literally takes 15 minutes. I did not use a blender. I cooked the mixture before it started thickening I strained it, I hate when it is not smooth, and then continued cooking and mixing and it was ready in a few minutes. I then poured half of the dessert into cups and the second half I added shredded coconut. I served the plain ones with cinnamon on top and the coconut ones with coconut.

I preferred the plain ones, somehow coconut ones felt heavier. I will try with nuts next time. I highly recommend.

Hi Binnur, thank you for another wonderful recipe! I made this one again for the second time and can devour the entire pan myself! I didn't blend, nor strain, but kept gently mixing with a whisk over medium low heat until it came to a soft boil. It's creamy and smooth, better than any boxed pudding out there! Thank you!
