Paal Kesari – Milk Kesari

September 21, 2017 Navaratri SpecialSweets/Desserts  3 comments

Paal Kesari or Milk Kesari is a simple South Indian sweet. I made this for the 1st day of Navaratri (today). Perfect for this festive season and for sudden cravings/guests. It is very similar to the normal Rava Kesari. The addition of milk gives it a magical taste. It tasted more like a halwa! The needed ingredients are always available at home. All u need is 15-20 mins. Do check my Semiya Kesari & Aval Kesari recipes too.

Its been quite some time since I disappeared from here! The reason being, we were in the process of moving home. We are yet to settle down completely.

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!!Β Β 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!!

Wishing u all a very happy new year!! I always like to begin the new year on a sweet note. This Kalakand is an easy-peasy sweet that can be made in just 15 mins with very simple ingredients.

Yayyyyy!! Finally made it! Yes!! Adhirasam was a long time due post. I tried making it for last Diwali and it was a super flop πŸ™ Did not dare to try it again until this year’s Diwali. It was a flop again!! Lazy me, I tried making it with store bought rice flour. Though I got the jaggery syrup consistency right both the times, it was a super flop!! Finally I made it with homemade rice flour and it was a super hit!!

Now I can tell all the Do’s & Dont’s to make Adhirasam successfully..

I gained courage to make it as a ...

Badam Halwa is a rich and delicious sweet made with almond paste, sugar and ghee. There is no sugar syrup consistency needed in making this Badam halwa. Is it not good news?!? Unlike other sweets, this Badam Halwa does not need a lot of ghee. I have posted a Badam Burfi recipe earlier. Its a microwave version. Kaju Katli is yet another favourite of mine. Try anyone of these if u are a fan of cashew/badam based sweets.
