Rosemilk Popsicle – Rose Popsicle

March 30, 2017 Ice CreamsSummer Special  8 comments

Rosemilk is a childhood favourite flavour. I recently made Rosemilk with homemade rosemilk syrup. Recipe coming soon HERE. I wanted to make it as a popsicle but did not want to use the syrup. So made this easy peasy Rosemilk Popsicle which was a super hit at home. U need very simple ingredients to make this. Its a very easy, no cook popsicle recipe. All u need to do is whip up a few ingredients, pour it in popsicle moulds and freeze. Tadaaaaa! Refreshing cool popsicles will be ready. I agree with you, the waiting time to let it freeze is really boring. But it’s worth the wait! So try it out. 🙂

Stuffed Brinjal Fry – Stuffed Brinjal Curry

March 28, 2017 Dry SabjiKootu / Poriyal Varieties  2 comments

Brinjal is my all time favourite! I can eat brinjal in any form. This Stuffed Brinjal Fry is a simple and flavourful curry to go with rice or roti. The freshly ground masala does the magic here. Usually the stuffing will be made with peanuts and sesame seeds. Since am not a big fan of that combo, have changed the flavours according to our taste buds. If u are like me, try this combo. Have given the usual masala powder option in the tips. Ennai Kathirkkai is my favourite too.

Potato Puttu – Urulaikizhangu Puttu

March 15, 2017 Kootu / Poriyal VarietiesPotato Recipes  6 comments

Puttu is basically peeled and mashed vegetable that is tempered with spices, green chillies and onion. This Potato Puttu is a simple yet flavourful side dish for rice. This goes well with sambar, rasam & most of all with any spicy kuzhambu. Usually I make some kootu variety to pair with it, but this Potato Puttu is also a favourite at home. When we get bored with the usual potato fry with all the masalas, I make this much milder version.

Homemade Chocolate – Easy Chocolate Recipe

March 8, 2017 Bars N CookiesSweets/Desserts  6 comments

Homemade Chocolate has been in my to do & trial list since a long time. I have tried making it 3 times using various methods – with milk powder, single string sugar consistency, microwave version!! And all of it has been a super flop!! It was not presentable and refused to leave the mould, but it did not go waste!!  After all the attempts, finally this version worked well. This is a simple, no fail process with just 3 ingredients. If u do not like a coconut flavoured chocolate, u might not like this. To me it tasted like a smoother, no bits version of Bounty Chocolate. If u like Bounty, or coconut flavour in your chocolate then GO for it!! Do try my No bake Choco Nutty Cake.

Potato will always be in the weekly veggies shopping list. I always make sure that it tastes different every time I cook it. This Spicy Baby Potato Roast is yet another easy and yummy version of potato fry. Not much fancy ingredients or any sort of grinding is needed here. It can be made in less than 30 minutes flat. Goes well with rice, roti or even bread. Usually the leftover (if any) goes into the making of sandwich – my favourite 🙂 Any variety rice – Tamarind Rice or Lemon Rice or Coconut Rice and this potato fry is a divine combo!!
