White Chocolate Cardamom Mousse with Speculous



Yesterday daughter Dear went for Mika Concert , she went with five other friends from her class and one of the girls parents droven them there and back .
But we waited till she came home for going for sleep and it was late , when she came it was 1:30 in the early morning.

Yesterday after having dinner hubby and I went for a walk and then to my inlaws place and we stayed there till 22:00 hrs and gossiped with a bottle of wine, and hubby was jokinly saying yeah this is what our life is going to be when S is gone to college from September.
When we didn't had S we used to go for walks almost every evening to the beach side after hubby came home and then we had S , well that all stopped you can't go when ever or were ever you want with a small baby.
And years have gone so fast she is not a baby anymore .............

Now to the recipe, the moment I saw this in Meeta's place What's For Lunch Honey? i knew I was going to make them.
I have to admit I am not a white chocolate fan, but with cardamom in the dessert that i love.
And this was indeed a very delicous dessert.
Especailly if you are having a pasrty with Indian food this is a wonderful dessert to serve and it is really easy to make, but looks beautiful.

Want to make them for your next party hopo over to her place for the recipe here.

Sending this to Priya's Cooking with Seed event i am a day late.
As it is having a slight yellow colour don't think i added colour, just that i get egg from my MIL's sister, she have some 20 chickens and every week she gives me some egss and the yolk is so dark. If you eat the eggs you can really taste how good they are, the shop bought ones are not good at all, but then I know not everybody have aunts who gives eggs :-)

I've not tasted chocolate and cardamom combination before... mousse looks divine. Also, I love speculos and I get the same (Lotus) brand here once in a while and I savor every bit of it. I always called it biscoff (since that was the name when i first ate it on the plane). Do you have the recipe for it by anychance? I
