Carrot Halwa – Gajar Halwa – Halwa Recipes

February 21, 2018 Halwa RecipesHoli RecipesSweets/Desserts  3 comments

Carrot Halwa is an all time favourite. It is a divine treat when served warm on a winter day! Yumm!! I love it when made with Delhi carrots. Was so happy and surprised to see them here during last week’s shopping as it is hardly available here. All we get are those English carrots. The red colour of Delhi carrots is so attractive. So it is so obvious that I made this Carrot Halwa. I have already posted a microwave version of this Halwa earlier. Check it HERE. This is an elaborate method, Of course it is lip-smacking and worth the time & effort. Do check my Beetroot Halwa & Potato Halwa too.

Tawa Paneer Masala – Paneer Recipes

December 5, 2017 Dals/GraviesHoli RecipesPaneer Dishes  No comments

Paneer is always a favourite at home. This Tawa Paneer Masala is full of flavours. Its a super-yummy, semi-dry curry that goes well with roti & pulao varieties. Ideally as the name suggests it is made in a tawa. Since I do not have one ideal to make this, I made it in my usual pan. Its the quickest paneer recipe unlike the usual Paneer Butter Masala or Shahi Paneer. Not much planning is needed here as it just calls for the usual ingredients available in the pantry. A good dose of capsicum adds a magical flavour.

Kaju Pista Roll had been in my plan list for last year’s Diwali. Somehow could not manage to make it. This time when I made the Kaju Katli video, made it as an extended version. It is in fact an extension of Kaju Katli as the base layer is the same with an additional pista filling. Made it as a video recipe too. So happy about the results as it tasted just like the ones we get in sweet shops. With this my sweet collection for this year’s Diwali is over.
