Virgin Pina Colada is an easy and refreshing drink made with pineapple and coconut milk. Originally it is made with rum, but this is a non-alcoholic version. This is a super kids friendly drink, healthy too. All u need is fresh or canned pineapples, coconut milk and ice cubes. Oops I ended up telling the recipe here itself.. Hehehe yes it is so simple. I recently tried this Virgin Pina Colada in a Mexican restaurant and totally loved it. Apart from this yummy drink, I also made a creamy popsicle.

Strawberry Milkshake – Milkshake Recipes

June 5, 2018 DrinksSummer Special  One comment

Strawberry is not a fruit that I fancy eating much, just because they are sour most of the times. But love the look and flavour of it. So always transform the fruit into a sorbet or popsicle as I have already done. This season made a simple Strawberry Milkshake which is a very easy & yummy milkshake with very few ingredients. This is a thick and creamier milkshake as I have used ice cream as well. U can skip the ice cream if u dont prefer it. Also made Strawberry Ice Cream, recipe coming soon ๐Ÿ™‚

White Pumpkin Juice – Ash Gourd Juice

May 10, 2018 DrinksSummer Special  One comment

It is scorching summer in India and it is fairly warm here too. Beginning this summer season with a simple drink or rather I would say it is a coolant. Much needed for the season! This White Pumpkin Juice or Ash Gourd Juice is a perfect drink to keep u hydrated. White Pumpkin known as Vellai Poosanikai/Thadiyanga in tamil is usually used to make kootu. If you are a Chennaite you woud have noticed these precious veggies being smashed on the road on Ammavasai days! ๐Ÿ™ This Juice is a not only a very healthy one but also popular among a weight loss diet menu.ย

Carrot Orange Juice – Carrot Juice

June 7, 2017 DrinksSummer Special  One comment

Fresh juices, ice creams & milkshakes are the need of the hour now. Especially in Chennai, the heat waves have not gone down yet. This Carrot Orange Juice is an easy and refreshing juice to beat the heat. Chotu is a big fan of orange juice. Any sort of fizzy/aerated drink is a big NO at home. Chotu does not like them either. Not much fancy ingredients are needed here. So enjoy this simple and refreshing drink. Check my other summer treats HERE!

Pesarattu Dosa – Moong Dal Dosa

May 10, 2017 Breakfast/DinnerDosa CornerDrinks  No comments

Pesarattu Dosa is a very popular breakfast recipe from Andhra Pradesh. It is very healthy and nutritious as it is made from whole moong beans. I learned this recipe from a friend. I tried it for the 1st time and we all loved it. It is a very flavourful dosa variety. One more to the Dosa basket ๐Ÿ™‚ Unlike the normal Dosaย we do not have to ferment this Pesarattu. The only planning to be done is to soak the moong beans the previous night or for 8-10 hours.

Homemade Rosemilk – With Homemade Rose Syrup

April 27, 2017 DrinksSummer Special  4 comments

Rosemilk brings back a lot of childhood memories. We used to make Rosemilk with Roohafza syrup. Am not sure if that is still available in the market. As a child, I thought that was Homemade Rosemilk. Trust me, making Rose Syrup at home is not a big deal. Moreover it does not contain any preservatives, making it a much better option than the store bought ones. I made Rosemilk Popsicles earlier. U can make this Rosemilk and pour it in popsicle moulds and enjoy too. If u ask me, I would not be patient enough to let it freeze and would simply slurp it with a straw ๐Ÿ™‚

Panagam – Panakam – Rama Navami Recipes

April 3, 2017 DrinksSummer Special  2 comments

Panagam or Panakam is a traditional drink made especially on Rama Navami. It is a Hindu festival celebrating the birth of Lord Rama. As Rama Navami falls on the 5th of April, thought of posting this traditional recipe. This is a child hood favourite. My grandma used to make this for her daily pooja as a prasad, especially during summer time. It is a perfect thirst quencher too. The addition of cardamom and ginger powder gives a divine taste to it.

Thandai – this was totally a new term to me until I started blogging. I had no clue what it was. But this recipe would be circulating in the food blogging world during Maha Sivaratri or during Holi.

After a lot of googling, finally adapted this recipe from Tarla Dalal’s recipe. Its my turn to post Thandai recipe during Sivaratri nowย
