This is the modak I have grown up eating at our Maharashtrian friends' homes. Basically, it's an 'atte ki poori' stuffed with dry fruits, coconut and gur. It's steamed and made for Ganesha chaturthi every year. I love it! Ganapati Bappa Moraya!
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.
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.
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.
A great recipe for a simple chocolate cake that even vegetarians and lactose intolerant people can enjoy!
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!
Enjoy this wonderful Italian snack of bread topped with a sharp, lemony anchovy paste and sweet grilled tomato. Anchovies are excellent in winter to 'heat' the body.
Grape leaves are stuffed with meat and veggies for this intensely popular traditional snack from Middle Eastern and Mediterranean countries. This one is inspired by a Greek filling of lamb and rice.
