This Baklava recipe uses the same kind of filo pastry that's used for 'veggie or goat puffs'. It looks like samosa dough but it's crispy, light and flaky- the perfect texture for this rich, honey soaked, nut sprinkled, wildly popular middle eastern dish. It crackles as you bite but almost instantly, it just melts in your mouth.
This yummy dessert is made with sponge cake drenched in custard and topped with fruits and nuts. Feel free to make the custard and add fruits of your choice! Happy Karva Chauth and Jhhakarian!
Sweet, savoury, cinnamon and egg coated bread fried till golden brown and topped with fruit of choice. Here's the classic feel good breakfast for you and your family. You may also garnish it with whipped cream or honey or strawberry syrup. Enjoy!
This healthy recipe doesn't need a pie crust, so you save time and calories! Feel free to experiment with different types of cheeses and chillies to suit your taste. Great for a special breakfast or any time snack!
Don't be shy to try this unusual, super easy, decadent dessert. And if she asks, tell ma you're getting your protein and carbs both in this dish ;)
If you are like me and enjoy besan in sweets, then you will love Besan ladoo. What is even better is that they're very easy to make and keep well for many days. Not that they will last that long!
Simple wonderful on a cold monsoon evening! Chicken soup is often credited with being a panacea for all kinds of ills, and this version – with its warming spices and vibrant colour – should perk up anyone. Serve with ghee wala parathas.
A great veggie pizza- ready made pizza crust baked with sun dried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and tangy molten feta cheese, sprinkled with fresh kali mirchi. Serve with a leafy salad. Yum!
I love this rich, decadent, not too sweet chocolate pudding. It's the perfect snack with a cuppa chai on a Sunday afternoon. This year we're making 'pudding Rakhis'- organic, edible rose petals with a dollop of pudding inside, fringed with mint leaves. 'Rakhi' is a big festival in our family, all my cousins and uncles come home, we tie them rakhis and then have a traditional Punjabi feast.
This is a lovely conclusion to an elegant dinner! I garnish it with cream, a strawberry 'fan' and a sprig of mint.
