A Brilliant Nougat Recipe

pani puri recipeHistory of nougat

“Tante manon, tu nus gates” – Aunt Manon, you spoil us!! Or so the story goes when it comes to nougat as no one really knows just where and when it nougat sprung out, but the story most people enjoy hearing is the story of a little french lady in the village where in she would make what is now known as nougat for the kids as they played and from the line quoted above one would assume that the word nougat was derived from here.

But the french being the french and who they are when it comes to food they assume that during the 1650’s around the time the almond tree was introduced to the montelimar people,but many historians believe that nougat was around forĀ  much longer yet was under a different name.

The Recipe

250g Honey

250g Castor sugar

1egg white

1 vanilla pod

Fruits and nuts to taste.

One thing around nougat is remain constant in your scale and try not to deviate from recipe, and with nougat this recipe will give you a lovely soft rich taste.

So Beat the egg white to a ‘frappe’ stage.

mix sugar and honey over heat until it reaches 115’C

Slowly add the honey/sugar mix to the eggs(which should be beating)

and mix until desired consistency is reached

add fruits and nuts

Now its time to add your variations(chocolate,chilli,mocha)

And then allow to set on rice paper or icing sugar

Voila Enjoy!!

Variation possibilities Maybe try to add a bit moreĀ  zing to the nougat of course it depends on a persons taste but here are a few ideas.

Citrus zest

Liquors(curacao range,brandy definitely not tequila or vodka)

Dried nuts


Fresh herbs(thyme,rosemary,lemon grass)

Seeds(pumpkinseeds, pine nuts)

Coffee and of course chocolate.

And Voila you are now done,jist shape your nougat and off you go,by the way a great think would be to line a silicone mold in order to get pretty unusual shapes of nougat.
