    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 THEME: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET Next week I’m traveling to Canada to visit my son. Excited? Yes. Have I started packing? No. I know last minute I’m going to be running around like a headless chicken. I need to put away the spices, grains, flours, lentils everything in the fridge. I hate this part. The weather here is so humid that food gets spoilt within a month in not stored in the fridge. I need to still make a few goodies to take for him. I need to pack. I was joking with hubby dear that he might as well convert one of the bedrooms into a cold storage. Oh well, let me just relax for a bit and…

    EVENTS: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 WEEK 2 DAY 2 FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEMES: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET / EID SPECIAL Lets talk about the the Blogging Marathon theme first. I chose make one type of Indian Sweet because I wanted to make different types of kheer and also showcase that its possible to make both sugarless and with sugar without any hassles. I’d come across so many carrot kheer recipes and always wondered what it would taste like. So voila there I made it and it tastes awesome. Its actually a great dessert, easy to make and the charming thing about this recipe is that besides being so colorfully tempting, one can control the amount of sugar that goes into it. Since carrots are slightly sweet,…

    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #89 WEEK 2 DAY 1 THEME: MAKE ONE TYPE OF INDIAN SWEET For the #89th BM theme I chose make one type of Indian Sweet as I specifically had one famous and easy Indian sweet in mind, and that is kheer. I want to show that any type of kheer can be made into a sugar less option too. I personally don’t like the taste of any artificial sweeteners. However hubby loves his stevia. When I made the kheer, I added sugar at the last stage. I removed a portion for hubby, added stevia and to mine I added sugar. Also one is able to control the amount of sugar according to their taste. Don’t want to add sugar then add palm…

    Happy Diwali and a wonderful New Year Diwali festivities are not the same as back in India. However, the Indian community in Mombasa, holds various functions to involve the Hindus during these auspicious days. Rangolis, creativity, fetes, competitions, firework displays, yummy food, poojas and havans. As soon as Navratri gets over everyone begins cleaning the house, getting sweets and savouries ready, shopping for gifts and new clothes. Every year our community Patel Samaj holds a fete. There are various food stalls and games. Most of the people, Hindus and non Hindus come for the yummy food. Papdi no lot, Kachri bateta, Bhel, pani puri, sev puri, dosa, khichdi, pav bhaji,etc. Every year new varieties are added to the list. Other communities hold a dinner during…

    this tastes good when it is hot Mangoes have disappeared for now and the pawpaws available are not nice. So I was wondering what fruit to add to the humble banana to make a nice yummy fruit salad. Nothing much was available besides apples and grapes. I had no choice but to make nice hot kheer for hubby dear as he too fasted for Janamashtami yesterday. We both like sabudana kheer nice and cold and I had forgotten to make it the previous day. Very early in the morning I remembered having samo kheer as prasadam on Ekadashi day from the Juhu ISKCON temple. Hot kheer with just a touch of cardamom and lots of cashew nuts. So I made samo or moriyo kheer and…

    Happy Dussera Dussera is celebrated with much festivity by all Hindus. Burning of effigies of Ravan, havans, poojas, visarjans etc. Basically its the victory of good over evil. However, for most of us it is an excuse to make something sweet and feast. This Dussera I made kheer with a slight difference. I added grated apple and the kheer turned out delicious. Prashant, don’t worry, did remember you. Hopefully will be able to make it for you when I visit Bangalore.  APPLE KHEER For 4  1litre full fat milk 2 cups of grated apples (2 medium apples) 2 tbsps sugar 2 tbsps condensed milk or  grated mawa (khoya) 2 tbsps of almond and pistachio slivers ½ tsp cardamom powder a few strands of saffron Boil…

    First Ekadashi for the Year 2012    Ekadashi is the eleventh day of the lunar month in the hindu calendar.Therefore Ekadashi comes twice a month. It is considered a spiritual day by most Hindus and devotees fast on Ekadashi. The fasting varies for individuals, some fast the whole day without water and food, some just eat fruit and some take one meal.  My childhood memories are my grandmother fasting on Ekadashi. My mum would prepare sama or moriyo ni khichdi for her. That would be her lunch and a glass of milk at night. However, we were not allowed to even dip our little fingers in the khichdi to taste it.  After marriage, Ekadashi was a fast normally observed by all. So naturally I also…
