Ogi is a good substitute for custard in desserts. Either as breakfast or dessert, Ogi, Yoghurt and Granola are a match made in heaven
  • Ogi
  • Yoghurt - preferably a fruit based yoghurt
  • Granola
  • Chocolate
  • Fruit sauce - your choice of fruit
  • Fresh fruits
  1. Dissolve Ogi in water
  2. Cook in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute, bring it out and stir. Put it back in the Microwave for another 45 seconds to 1 minute. You want this Ogi to be consistency of Ogi you are used to serving with Akara or Moin Moin. .
  3. Now you have your Ogi sorted, get out the glass you want to serve this with. You can also use a small mason jar or a wine glass. Something that will fit in your fridge.
  4. Now, to the surprise bit. Cut chocolate into chunks and layer the bottom of the glass. It is a surprise because you won't get to it until you have almost finished the parfait.
  5. Add your choice of fruit. I used pomegranates, because they go so well with chocolate, plus the colour is so apt for the season.
  6. Slowly pour in the Ogi as the first creamy layer. Be mindful of how tall your glass is, so don't overdo it. Follow that layer with your fruit sauce. To make fruit sauce, simply blend your choice of fruit(s), boil some sugar syrup, add the blended fruit and let it reduce till thick. I was using Passion Fruit Sauce. The fruit sauce will create another layer for colour and sweetness. This is followed by the granola, then Yoghurt with fruit chunks, or you can layer with Ogi again. Finish off with a topping of granola, more of the fruit that you layered with chocolate, in my case pomegranates, and then use a sharp knife or vegetable peeler to create chocolate swirls...... and that's it. Sorry I wasn't photographing as I added each layer, but the finished product is self-explanatory.
  7. It will take all of 5 minutes, and you place in the fridge to chill.
You can use Muesli if you wish, or even your favourite biscuits in the place of Granola.
