Ingredients to make Leftover Bread Pudding in Microwave in 3 minutes

  • Leftover sugar syrup 2 spoons
  • Coffee powder 1/2 tsp
  • Leftover Bread slices 3
  • Milk 1/2 cup
  • 1 egg
  • Sugar 2 tsp
  • Butter 1 tablespoon
  • Salt a pinch
  • Cinammon a pinch
  • Vanilla essence 2 drops

To make Caramel I have used 2 spoons leftover sugar syrup. Heat it on low flame. Swirl the pan in between. Add 1/2 Tsp coffee powder for flavour.

After few minutes the colour of sugar syrup will turn into golden brown. Remove it from heat. If it’s too thick add some water/leftover sugar syrup to adjust the consistency. Pour this into 2 remakins. Keep this aside.

Take 3 slices of leftover bread. Pour 1/2 cup of milk over to soak it for 5 minutes. Add 2 Tsp of sugar, a pinch of salt and cinnamon and 2 drops of Vanilla essence.

Add 1 Tbsp of unsalted butter and 1 beaten egg. Mix everything together. Pour this bread mixture in to greased remakins.

Micro high these for 3 minutes. Insert a toothpick and see if it needs few more seconds to micro.

Take it out once it cooks down a bit. Invert remakins on a plate.

Drizzle some more Caramel over it. Garnish it with Strawberry and few mint leaves.

Ingredients to make Hung Curd Cheesecake With Almond-Oats Crust

  • FOR CHEESE LAYER :
  • 1 cup hung curd
  • 1 cup crumbled paneer (homemade)
  • 1 tsp Fresh cream
  • 2 tbsp Condensed milk
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • For the crust :
  • 1 cup powdered oats
  • 1/2 cup powdered almonds
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • FOR GARNISHING :
  • Pistachios , Blueberries and cranberries.

How to make Hung Curd Cheesecake With Almond-Oats Crust

  1. For making crust: Mix the powdered    oats, powdered almonds and sugar well.
  2. Rub in the butter until it is well combined and the mixture starts to come together
  3. Keep a pie mould ready. Grease and line it with parchment paper.                 
  4. Press the above mixture into the prepared baking tin.
  5. Spread it into an even layer with your fingers to form the base or the crust of our cheesecake.
  6. Keep it refrigerated until our cheesy mix gets ready.
  7. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes.
  8. Put all the ingredients of the cheesecake in a bowl and blend until it turns smooth and creamy.                   
  9. Pour this over the prepared crust
  10. Bake in the pre heated oven at 160 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the cheesy layer just sets.                       
  11. Remove it from the oven and allow it to come to room temperature.              
  12. Refrigerate for 2 hours minimum.
  13. Garnish with pistachios, cranberries and drizzle of blueberries.                      
  14. Slice and serve cold. Keep the remaining cheesecake refrigerated.

Notes-
1. Preparing 1 cup of hung curd- Line a sieve with a muslin cloth and pour 2 cups of curd into it.

2. Tie the ends of the muslin cloth together and squeeze out the excess water. Hang it over the tap until all the whey water drips away. Or you may allow it to stay for a couple of hours in the sieve until the water drains away. Keep a bowl under the sieve and refrigerate it until you use the hung curd [ this will keep the curd cheese from becoming sour]. Hung curd/ curd cheese can be stored refrigerated for 2-4 days.

3. The cheese layer must be smooth and creamy without any lumps.

4.You may adjust the sweetness according to your preference by adding less or more sugar.

5.Oven temperature and time vary. Bake just until the cheese sets [but is still jiggly]. It should stay white on top even after baking, so do keep an eye on it.

6.Line the base and sides of tin, both, with parchment. This makes it easier to remove our cheesecake

Yogurt mousse with Gulkand and rose petal honey

Yogurt mousse with Gulkand and rose petal honey

This dessert is an adaptation of some pretty well known names Mousse, Pannacotta and the Shrikhand. It is light like a mousse, creamy like pannacotta and flavored like yogurt shrikhand.

It is a mousse without eggs, a panna cotta without heavy cream & a set shrikhand with honey & all the wonderful flavors of saffron & some fresh rose petals.

Prep Time : 20 minutes

Cook Time : 10 minutes

Serves
2 persons

Ingredients to make Yogurt mousse with Gulkand and rose petal honey

1 cup hung curd
A generous pinch of saffron
1 tbsp of Rose petal honey
1 tsp Gulkand
About 6 tablespoons of milk
1 tbsp gelatine
Vegetable oil to grease the ramekins
Rose petals and rosé petals honey to garnish

To make Rose petals honey :
1/2 cup Honey
1/4 cup loosely packed desi/ organic rose petals of any fragrant rose

To prepare Rose petals honey:

Wash the rose petals. Dry them lightly .. pat with paper towel. Lightly fill a jar with petals. I used a small bottle & poured the honey over it.

Let it stand for a 2 days. It gets more fragrant with time.

Preparing the Mousse:

Drain the curd in a cotton cloth and hang it for few minutes.
Place this hung curd in fridge for further draining along with sieve as otherwise it will go sour when kept outside.
After 24 hours transfer to a clean bowl. Whisk it well in the bowl to make it fluffy & airy. Gently crush the saffron threads between your fingers.

Blend it in with the yogurt.
Set aside & let it sit for couple of hours for the flavor of the saffron to be infused. The yogurt will take the light yellow color from the saffron.

Sprinkle gelatin over 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl and let stand 1 minute to soften.

Heat the milk in the microwave for about 40 seconds or till almost boiling hot

Stir in gelatin in the warm milk until dissolved and there are no lumps.
Mix yogurt, gulkand & rose petals honey.

Whisk them together well again to blend and fluff.
Line the ramekins with vegetable oil.
Spoon the yogurt mix into the ramekins.

Cover and put them in a refrigerator and chill until it sets (about 6-8 hours. Overnight works best).
Before serving place a plate over the ramekin, turn it over and tap the ramekin lightly for it to come out.


Drizzle some rose petal and prepared honey on the mousse & serve chilled.

Notes :

The saffron & the rose petals are just one of other options. The same delicacy may be presented with bits of fruits & nut in it.

I have used gelatin to set mousse. It can be made without using gelatin too. It’s how we set Shrikhand in freezer.

Black eyed Bean/Sukhi Choulai Blondies

Black-eyed  beans, are among the most nourishing in the legume family. Black-eyed beans are a great pantry item. Their distinctive taste is wonderful in curries and salads too.

My family always cooked black- eyed beans in the form of curry to be eaten with flatbread/chapati. As usual children don’t prefer it and they can’t be forced to eat. So while searching for some interesting recipes, I chanced upon this recipe on Pinterest. And I must say this is the best way to feed dried beans to your family, as no one can say no to a sweet dish.

These Black Eyed bean Blondies are moist and fudgy, with chocolatey goodness in every bite. No one would believe they’re also loaded with nutritious beans.

Pineapple Zarda (Sweetened Rice)

IMG-20170424-WA0111_wm

Pineapple Zarda (Sweetened Rice)

Zarda is a traditional dish which is mainly prepared in weddings in the north Indian Muslim communities. Pineapple Sweet Rice is a traditional dish of India and Pakistan. There are many variations of this recipe. Pineapple flavour is widely popular among Muslims. It’s a very delicious Dessert and it’s really very easy to make.

This is the perfect combination of fruity and rich flavours. People call it by many names, Meethe Chawal, Zarda, etc. Here I have added pineapple to give it a fruity taste. Though traditionally mawa is added, you can leave it out and make your dish less rich.To my surprise it turned out awesome. I wasn’t sure at first but when my family appreciated it and asked for more, It made me happy that the recipe passed the test and is ready to go on the blog.

This is one of my favourite dishes. My mother always used to make zarda/meethe chawal on special occasions with saffron and coconut flavours.
The best Zarda is one, where each grain of rice is long, separate and firm with no evidence of mush or overly softened rice, all whilst being coated in the sparkling syrupy goodness of the sugar.

So, the sweetened pulao is here for you. Prepare it at home by following this easy recipe with step by step instructions along with pictures.
