POV: You’re on dessert duty for the next holiday party.
What to take: Kashmiri Tea-Ramisu.
Treat your loved ones to a dessert they’d love. A blend of the East and West. Kashmiri Chai is a winter favorite and I have come up with a way to incorporate my love for it into my favorite dessert ever. The best part about this recipe? You only need a few ingredients and less than 1 hour of prep time.
Without further ado, I introduce you to Kashmiri Tea-Ramisu!

- 1 tsp Kashmiri Chai Blend (I used Chai Shai)
- 2 tsp sugar (to your preference) to add to chai
- 1 cup whole milk to add to chai
- A lot of Cool Whip
- 1-2 tsp Rooh-Afza
- LadyFingers (store-bought)
- Rose/nuts to garnish
- Boil 1 heaping teaspoon of the Kashmiri chai blend with 1 cup whole milk (or milk of choice) and sugar. Bring to a strong boil, strain and pour into a bowl. Set aside to cool.
- Carefully dip each ladyfinger into the chai, one at a time. Make it quick or else it’ll break like a Parle-G in chai! Tip: Layer the ladyfingers vertically and brush the chai onto each of the ladyfingers if soaking is difficult. If you have a larger tray to fill, you can break the ladyfingers to fill it in.
- Make your whipped topping using Cool Whip. Take 2 teaspoons of Cool Whip and put it into a bowl. It’s completely up to you to determine how fluffy you want your Kashmiri Tea-Ramisu whipped topping to be, so it is okay to not be shy when adding whipped cream.
- Add in a teaspoon of Rooh-Afza to the Cool Whip and mix. Rooh-Afza has a very powerful scent, so you can add in a teaspoon and see if the mixture is the shade of pink that you prefer.
- Layer ladyfingers with the whipped topping. Repeat soaking of the ladyfingers and set this batch horizontally. Layer again.
- Top with dried rose petals, garnish with some nuts and/or pistachios if desired.
- Cover with a plastic wrap before letting the tea-ramisu chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours (the longer the better).
Et voila! A few hours later, slice or just grab a spoon and dig in.
