STEAMED ROLY POLY JAM PUDDING























STEAMED ROLY POLY JAM PUDDING
Roly Poly Pudding is an old Victorian Dessert that was very popular during the British Raj. . It got its name from the word ‘roly-poly’ which is a colloquial word for anything round, It was also known as shirt-sleeve pudding – because it was often steamed or boiled in an old shirt-sleeve, In the olden days this pudding was always made with ‘Suet’ which made it rather heavy. However, the suet is now substituted with butter to make it less heavy.  This was a favourite dessert of ours when we were kids. It takes just one hour to prepare and steam it. There's nothing more comforting than having a warm pudding to round off a meal.
