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!
I don’t have sweet tooth. But there is something about Genasale that I end up having more and more when ever it’s made at home. My granny prepares this for me whenever I visit her. So it makes it more closer to my heart. As if she has got it in her gene, my mom too makes ultimate genasale. So I guess it’s my duty to learn to prepare this : ). Sharing with you all this sweet preparation.
This North Karnataka special chutney can be eaten with joladarotti or chapati.
Peanut chutney powder is called Shenga Hindi in North Karnataka. You can sprinkle this powder on curries, rice or dosas.
This is a very authentic bengali dessert that is popular everywhere in the country, typically made during any religious or auspicious occasions such as birthdays, baby showers, or annyaprasan. However, every family in bengal have their own variation of payesh. This is how it is made in our family and I love it. Hope you'll like it too.
This is a coconut, khoya mouth-watering sweet no one can resist. You'll never guess from its taste how easy it is to make! Narkoler nadu is very commonly used for pujas as a prasad and for me it is associated with fond memories of childhood. As usual there are many variations, but this is how it is made in our family.
A great recipe for a simple chocolate cake that even vegetarians and lactose intolerant people can enjoy!
This cake is simple enough to eat with a cuppa tea, yet good enough to serve for a special occasion. It's one of my family's favourites.
Good things come to those who wait. This recipe isn't the quickest but worth it! It makes plenty so you can give away as gifts with good coffee beans.
Freshly baked personal-sized pizzas, loaded with fresh tomato slices and topped up with cheeses, olives and fresh herbs. A delicious way to welcome your guests!
It takes only 5 ingredients to make this fabulously creamy ice cream. Before freezing, you can also add crushed biscuits, nuts, chocolate chips, coconut or any other of your favourites!
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.
Always wanted to make fudge? Here's a "grown up" version with Irish Cream for that special night time snack. Makes a great gift at festivals.
The 'soda' in this easy to make, wildly popular bread doesn't come from club soda, but from soda bicarbonate. Try it with anything you'd eat bread with!
Mix ginger ale with cranberry and pineapple juice and you get this punch, perfect for birthday parties. A big hit with kids and adults!
Condensed milk and cream combine beautifully for this super flavourful kulfi. You could add a few drops of rose water or ground pistachios on top.
This is a lovely conclusion to an elegant dinner! I garnish it with cream, a strawberry 'fan' and a sprig of mint.
These easy treats are great for dunking into chai on cold rainy days. The neighborhood kids decorated them in colours of the flag for a yummy and cool school project. You can change colours and patterns suitable to any festival. These make great gifts also. Happy Independence Day!
Rich and nutty, these chocolate muffins are great as breakfast or tea time snack. Pull up a chair in the veranda and watch the rain come down with these in one hand and a cuppa chai in the other.
Coffee in one hand and a decadent, melt in your mouth, warm muffin rolled in cinnamon sugar in the other. Ahhh!
