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.
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.
My mom used to makes this as a treat when I got good marks in tests at school.
This is one of the most famous sweet dishes in Rajasthan. This sweet dish is made on every occasion especially weddings.
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.
Easy to make coconut laddoos. I love the way they crumble.
This 'Khao Neeo Mamuang', is an authentic sweet rice pudding that you find in Thailand. It's creamy, smooth, garnished with sesame seeds and is just great for after dinner with a nice cup of coffee.
So rich, completely satisfies your chocolate cravings and really easy to make too. Fantastic for cold monsoon evenings with a hot cup of coffee. Enjoy!
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.
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.
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!
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.
