Corn dhokla recipe – easy snacks recipes

I had made this some ages ago for an evening snack and we had gorged on it and loved it.I buy corn many times as my kiddo likes it. But I often forget about it leaving it in the refigerator perhaps for a fortnight. It happened this time until I finally thought of making bhutte ka kees. But thinking of the meagre amount it will be after all the process, I dropped the plan and thought of making this dhoklas. I referred to a number of recipes in the net. Nothing special about the recipe, its almost same as we…

South indian mixture recipe – Diwali snack / savoury recipes

Last year , I had posted a chiwda/mixture recipe which is mostly made in Maharashtra. I find it easier to make that and have been making that almost every year during diwali. This time I asked my grandmother for diwali snacks and sweets suggestions. Among the sweets , she suggested boondi ladoo as she had taught me last year to make them. But I still dont feel confident about making them. She then asked me to try badusha. I have never made that , so I decided to make a small amount of it as it sounded a little simple…

Microwave mysorepak recipe – Easy sweet recipes – Diwali sweets

The mysorepak is a classic Indian dessert the preperation of which is believed to be the most difficult. I mean it takes guts and have to be made under the guidance of a expert. I have tried the traditional way of making this sweet and have posted it here. It was kind of okay when I made this for the first time, but was slightly crumbly. Then came the soft mysorepak-Krishna sweets kind of recipe which became a rage and was tried by several bloggers. I tried it too and it came out wonderfully. I made it many times and…

 

Rava besan halwa – easy indian sweets recipes

Sheera/halwa or kesari is made throughout in all the states of India with slight variations. I have posted a couple of varieties of kesari or sheera in this blog too. This recipe also is not much different from the other varieties I have posted before, but just has a small amount of besan or chick pea flour in it. So there is slight change in the taste, a hint of the besan flour added. It tastes wonderful. My friend made this for a religious good together one day and I loved the taste of it. I have seen my north…

 

Kaju besan burfi – chickpea flour cashewnut fudge- easy diwali sweet recipes

I was looking for some easy recipes which can be made for diwali and chanced upon this recipe in Jaya shenoy’s cookbook. Who does not like kaju kathli? I am sure kaju kathli is a favourite of everyone, But if you are looking for a slight variation, then you can try this sweet recipe. It tastes delicious and tastes quite similar to 7 cup cake because of the addition of besan. Actually, the taste of cashewnuts is quite prominent with a slight hint of besan in it. My son loves kaju kathli and he said this one tastes quite similar…

 

Soft mysore pak recipe – Diwali recipes

I have tried the traditional version of mysore pak before – the one which is slightly harder in texture. I always wanted to make the softer version , the kind available in krishna sweets. I simply love those and can’t stop eating them. I happen to see the mysore pak recipe at Jeyashri’s space and that very moment , I decided that I had to make them. They looked so tempting , so soft and beautiful. I was busy with my packing for the forthcoming trip to India and other routine activities. But I somehow wanted to make them and…
