I added a twist to my recipe and included coconut. My family loves these. And they're easy to make.
Use any nut for this recipe, or make a mixture of many nuts. Makes a fantastic gift or party food.
This is a popular recipe for kheer, flavoured with cardamon and rose water. Serve warm or cold. Fresh milk, rice and nuts are considered 'satvic' foods in Ayurveda. Satvic foods help balance one's doshas (subtle energies), nourish the body, the mind and ultimately, pave the way for one's spiritual evolution.
Use any soft fruit in season for this slightly tangy medley of flavours, a perfect follow-on to a spicy main course.
Use fresh mushrooms for this dish. They add a wonderfully concentrated flavour to this fast and easy dish. Serve with creamy pasta and a tender tomato salad. Delicious!
I love Thai food and this recipe comes from a very good Thai restaurant.
The inspiration for this whole wheat halwa is the Sikh classic ‘karha prashad’. This low fat dish contains cardamom, raisins, and nuts. My kids love it on a cold day as an after school snack. Also served at ashtmi, towards the end of navaratri.
This is an easy kheer to make especially if you run out of dessert and want something quickly.
If you are intimidated by the thought of making Rasgullas at home, breathe easy! I was too, until one day I tried it and realized I was worried for no reason all these years. They are quite easy and super quick to make. Give these a try.
This is a sweet form of daliya (porridge) traditionally served during Dushehra. You can add lots of nuts, khoya and make it an outstanding dish.
