Have you ever tried Khas Khas Doodh? It is a golden winter bliss prepared with white poppy seed, almonds, and milk. It is an incredible source of heat and energy for the cold winter nights and I’ve been drinking this stuff almost every alternate day from past few weeks. In the Punjabi dialect, they call it Khus – khaas. The Khas Khas wala doodh is typically made with milk, a handful of warming spices (cardamom, turmeric), sugar, and of course the poppy seed and almond paste. Turmeric is my addition to the recipe. After all, it is such a sort after ingredient these days. Khas – Khas Doodh is quite tasty, distinctly warm, earthy with slight notes of sweetness. Interested?? I totally think you should try the recipe.
What is a cold-pressed juice? Cold-pressed juice is nothing but the regular juice extracted in a most healthy and organic manner without damaging the nutrient value of the juice. It is a slow and gentle method to extract juice from your favorite fruit or the vegetable. How a cold-pressed juice better than the convention one? The regular juices are extracted using a high speed spinning juicer or grinder which generates excess heat. The heat reduces the potency and breaks down essential nutrients and fibres of the fruit/vegetable. Hence, there is minimal retention of fibres and nutrients in the conventional juices. I have recently discovered my love for cold-pressed juices, all thanks to Kent Cold Pressed Juicer.

Right now we are in the early March and yet the time has come to brew perfect iced coffee at home. The winter this year was gentle, not too many cold days and that means a harsh summer is waiting ahead. And to sail through the midsummer, I need homemade iced coffee. As much during winters, hot cup of cappuccino warm up my senses, similarly iced coffee keep me sane throughout summers. Whether piping hot or iced cold, we are sipping this dark, aromatic, energizing liquid year around. Many ambush the idea of serving coffee brew ice-cold. For them, cold coffee always has to be thick, sugar laced, creamy summer thirst quencher. There is nothing wrong in that cold coffee. Most places out of India, milk is not an additive to coffee, or for that matter even tea. Coffee with ice-cream and milk is often classified as a milkshake. We like to adore and appreciate coffee in it’s purest form. The aroma of fresh beans filling the morning air, that gurgling sound of the coffee filter in the quiet kitchen and finally you proudly drinking homemade brewed coffee with the breakfast. Nothing like it!
Kiwi Ka Panna Recipe is a simple Indian style sherbet made with charred or roasted kiwis, flavored with fresh mint sprigs and black salt. For the country where summers are scorching, clammy and extended till late August, refreshing homemade drinks are necessity to resist the soaring high heat. With last bottle of homemade Aam Panna already half way through gulped by the sweltering souls and raw mango becoming a rare sight, we decided to make Kiwi Ka Panna. In India, Aam Ka Panna is a popular summer drink made with sweet and sour raw mango, the recipe of Kiwi Ka Panna is inspired from the same. The plenty of kiwis sitting in our basket and slow depart of raw mangoes from the fruit vendor stall sparked an idea to churn up an Indian style sherbet out of these Chinese Gooseberries.
