Meethe Chawal or the sweet pulao is considered one of the most auspicious dishes in Punjabi Cuisine. Desserts made with rice are popular in Punjabi to name few – Kheer, Phirni and this unusual version of savory rice is a specialty prepared on certain festive occasions. Considered a good omen, to combine yellow rice with sugar and serve it as a sacred offering to the deity of the family.

Cake Rusk Recipe (How to Make Cake Rusk)

Today‚Äôs post is extra special as it features not only a cookie recipe but my all-time favorite Cake Rusk Recipe.

It is so simple to follow, fun and produces delicious, perfectly firm, bright golden cake rusk.

Eggless Banana Loaf Cake

Eggless Banana Loaf Cake is a delicious, quick to bake, tea-time treat recipe, perfect for the gloomy November evenings. With some over-ripe banana sitting in the fridge, banana loaf cake is a nice idea to utilize them. We replaced butter with olive oil in the recipe to reduce the calorie count of this cake. I am a big time fan of simple, tea-time bakes. And often, on my blog, you will find cakes which are super easy to make and look extremely fancy with a cup of coffee. Few of our all-time favorite tea-time bakes from the blog are – Strawberry Cake, Orange Cake, Lemon Pound Cake. Ohhh, we love them all. These are not really dessert cakes, but a tea-time or snack cake, good for that energy boost for breakfast or evening cup of tea/coffee. But of course, with a dollop of fresh cream or a plain vanilla ice-cream these naked cakes can be served as a dessert.

Samavat Rice Kheer (Vrat Ke Chawal Ki Kheer)

Kheer and the sweet dish season is back. We have officially entered the festive season in India. An array of festivities lined up in the upcoming months and they come to the halt with the year ending. Samavat Rice Kheer is one of the old school puddings that make a perfect dessert for the festive feasts. Simple, no fuss making process and the conventional creamy texture are the highlight of this gluten-free pudding. The only twist we have introduced in the Sama Rice Kher Recipe is adding a layer of fruits before serving. We love our puddings and custards chilled. Winter season as well is no exception for this rule. And the combination of chilled, thick and rich kheer layered with sweet and ripe mangoes, is definitely a gratifying experience for the food senses. If you thinking where to get mangoes in the month of October, then take a look around surprisingly it is still available. At least, it is still here in Delhi.

Jamun (Java Plum) Frozen Yogurt

The charm of summer in Delhi is the lack of inspiration around. We miss the enticing last summer. We were in hometown, Nainital, far away from the rest of the world, where summer is for perfect family picnics, trekking expeditions, local berries and seasonal fruits. But by the time winter came, we started missing the urban civilization and buzzing lifestyle. And to experience that, we shifted our base to Delhi – the heart of the nation. Summer in Delhi is deserted – the only sound is of an occasional bird cuckooing in the garden or a slow, rusty leaf falling from the tree. As described by the famous writer Ahmed Ali, Delhi summer is the season of ‘unending noon’. But even in the midst of such dullness, the beautiful hue of Jamun (Java Plum) inspired me to step ahead and play with the flavors of the fruit. Hence, the result is Jamun (Java Plum) frozen Yogurt

Rum Bundt Cake Recipe

Rum Bundt Cake Recipe is a Christmas inspired cake with a twist of mulled rum. The Rum Bundt Cake Recipe has no butter, no alcohol soaked  nuts instead plenty of mulled rum. So in case you have forgotten to soak dry fruits this year for Christmas Cake then Rum Bundt Cake Recipe could be your last minute savior. Alcohol Mulling is a process to infuse alcohol with subtle flavors over a period of time. This year while soaking dry fruits for the Christmas Cake I thought why not experiment with the rum as well. Took out a large decanter, poured good old rum in it along with some whole spices, stirred and sealed. By the end of the week, when I opened the lid of the decanter, it smelled divine. Unintentionally, while preparing the batter for the bundt cake, some candied fruits made their way into the batter. And they sank at the bottom of the cake in the process of baking cake which turned out a blessing in disguise. When I turned the cake upside down colorful candied fruits were studded on top of the cake like crowning jewels.
