Chocolate and peanut butter ice cream! It’s drizzling here in Bangalore and I am enjoying my cup of ice cream. That’s right! I like eating ice cream when it rains 😋 I figured that this was the best time to try out the new ice cream maker gifted to me by Kitchenif India in return for my honest review. First, a little about the ice cream.

Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut Butter Cups! Valentine’s day is around the corner and I have just reached 4000 followers on Instagram! So, for a small celebration, tried making these cute little peanut butter cups! Incidentally, they are also my husband’s favourite chocolate. I came across this recipe online and it seemed really very easy. I tried it, it came out pretty good, but the chocolate was stone hard. I tried again, with a variation in chocolate- still the same. So, I did some small research (googling, basically) and tried it for on last time- the results were just like I wanted it to be- softer chocolate! I have used cupcake moulds and hence the shape. Just love the ribbon of yellow round the corners! This peanut butter cup comes very close to the ones we get in stores- but tends to get a little melty when left out, which is perfectly fine as we have not added any additives. The taste was simply marvelous- salty peanut butter wedged between layers of chocolate. Bite into these cuties and fall in love w…

Chicken Burger

Chicken burger! My kids always want have burger. Always. Not very healthy. So how to make it healthier? Just make it at home! I used to think that making the patty would be a tedious job. But surprisingly, it was pretty easy! When you make the patties, ninety percent of the work is done. And the rest, is just putting it together, and honestly, that is the best part! (apart from eating it 😉). The burger also contains the must have onions, tomatoes and lettuce, which give it the crunch factor. The custom-made sauce adds the zing factor. You can involve your kids while putting the burger together and have a family fun time. Make some fries, squeeze some lemon juice and you have an awesome meal!

Akkaravadisal

Akkaravadisal! Akkaravadisal is a traditional sweet dish from Tamil Nadu. It is similar to sweet Pongal, but it is creamier, has more milk and has a different texture. It is made on the auspicious day of Pongal and even on Gokula Ashtami and Krishna Janmashtami. Though many make it with sugar, I have used jaggery. I have also used edible camphor which gives it a nice, divine smell. This dish also has loads of ghee, which makes it even more tempting. The fried cashews and saffron are also taste enhancers. Try it this Sankranti and tell me how it was! Ingredients:Raw rice- ½ cup Moong dal- 3 tblsp Full cream milk- 4 cups Water- 1 cup Grated jaggery- ½ cup to ¾ cup Ghee- ¼ cup+ 1 tblsp Cashews- 6 to 7 Edible camphor- a pinch (optional) Saffron strands- 4 to 5 Cardamom powder- ¼ tsp Method:1.Wash and rinse raw rice and moong dal together.
