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.
A wildly popular dessert that‘s found at any Rajasthani wedding and at sawan ki teej. It’s best had with warm milk.
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!
Shrikhand is a Maharashtrian-Gujarati sweet dish, great for festivals. It can be eaten by itself or as part of a meal. I like it with pooris.
Easy to make coconut laddoos. I love the way they crumble.
Rakhi or 'rakshabandhan' is a pretty big deal in our family. Here I took a dollop of shrikhand and decorated it in the shape of a rakhi with anardana, organic roses and mint leaves. A really pretty dish for your rakhi thali.
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.
Here's a delicious dessert for the whole family. I've used sugar substitutes for diabetics. You can adjust the sugar according to taste.
I added a twist to my recipe and included coconut. My family loves these. And they're easy to make.
