• ½ teaspoon corn flour

• 3 and ½ tablespoon sugar

For Custard

• ½ tablespoon ghee/ clarified butter(optional)

• ½ teaspoon vanilla essence

• ½ cup sugar








How to make:

1. Heat the milk till it gets to boiling point and turn off the heat.

2.Separate egg yolk and egg white.

3.Take egg whites, sugar and cornflour into a large clean mixing bowl and beat them on medium speed with an electric hand whisk till the mixture resembles a fluffy cloud (meringue) and stands up in stiff peaks when the blades are lifted.

4. Turn on the heat for milk and add spoonful meringue in hot milk. Make sure that milk does not go to boiling point.

5. Every time you add spoonful meringue, it will become like snow ball. Repeat the process to finish meringue.

6. Remove snow balls from milk in a serving bowl and turn off heat.

  4. I just tried it today… nd m luving it….mmmmmmmm ….thank u sweetheart

  5. This is a classic french dessert- Oeuf a la niege. One of my favorite ones. Try poaching the egg whites in water, instead of milk. It makes it way easier to handle.

  6. How long should I cook the snow ball? When to understand it’s time to switch off the flame?

    • Snow ball does nt need to cook long. Because of its lite and fluffiness, 2-3 minutes is more than enough. Thanks.

      With love
