Carrot Orange 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!

I have used vanilla custard powder. U can use any flavour of your choice. THIS HAPPENS TO BE MY 350th POST πŸ™‚

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. 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 πŸ™‚

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.
