Ingredients of Baked Pistachio Souffle
- 40 gm egg whites
- 80 gm powdered sugar
- 60 gm pistachios
Step 1 Preheat the oven Preheat the oven to 170 degree Celsius
Step 2 Whisk the ingredients Add the egg whites to a bowl. Add powdered sugar in batches and whisk well. Keep whisking until soft peaks are formed.
Step 3 Make pistachio paste Boil 1 cup of water in a pan. Bring to a boil, add the pistachios to it, simmer for half a minute and switch off the heat. Let the pistachios stay soaked for another minute in hot water. Now drain the water and collect the blanched pistachios in a bowl. Let them cool down and add them to a blender. Now blend to form a paste. Add water as per need to make a smooth but thick paste.
Step 4 Fold in the pistachio paste Add the pistachio paste to the sugar-egg mixture. Fold it in using the cut & fold method. Do not let the fluffed-up egg whites collapse.
Step 5 Pour the batter in mouldsTake soufflé moulds or ramekins and grease them with some butter. Pour the mixture till just half a centimeter short of the brim and run the thumb along the edges to help it rise freely while baking.
Step 6 Bake the souffles Bake at 170 degrees for 4 to 5 minutes till it rises at least 2-3 cm from the brim and the top has turned light golden-brown colour.
Step 7 Ready to be served Decorate the Souffles with pistachio flakes and serve. Enjoy!
