Honestly I personally feel that the Valentine Day is too much hyped up now-a-days. Everything looks way too commercialized, advertised & cheesy.
Seriously do you really need a particular day to convey your love and affection and make the other person feel special.

As my Mom’s neighbour is a Christian, every Sunday, lunch used to be a very big affair. She used to make this pudding in the morning and leave it in the fridge before heading out to Church and after lunch, this will be the dessert.
Many a Sunday afternoons have been spent licking away this yummy, chocolaty dessert and I thought this will be just perfect for the occasion.
Points to note while making this pudding:
You can also use the same quantity of corn flour (corn starch) instead of custard powder but make sure that you also add vanilla extract for flavor.
Rinsing the bowls with water ensures that the pudding does not stick to the bowl.
I used 2% milk, but you can also use full cream whole milk.
Adjust the quantity of the sugar according to your taste.
