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!
Kori Rotti is a Mangalorean speciality. Kori means chicken, and rottis, in this case, are not the traditional chapattis or rotis. They are a special kind of bread, which are made of rice paste and then dried, so quite hard and crispy and are made into sheets that are then broken into pieces. These rottis, when soaked by the chicken curry, absorb it and turn quite soft. A real taste and texture sensation!
This is our favourite sweet dish during the winter months. The almonds give warmth to the body as well as strength to fight the extreme cold.

This is one of my most favorite gourmet recipes and the reason I like it so much is because it not only tastes great, but looks beautiful too and above all it is simple and easy to make. I usually make it when I want to make a great impression on a new acquaintance. It is called pink chicken because the kashmiri mirch masala in combination with the yogurt gives the chicken a pinkish hue.
