• Black Rice Pudding with Mango

    August 6, 2018mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #156 ANY BUT WHITE RICE One of the reasons why I had bought black rice during my visit to Bali was to try out the simple and yet so flavorful pudding that is so common to find on menus in the restaurants around Bali. Sometime back I had posted a red rice kheer and a black rice salad recipe. I kept on getting comments that fellow bloggers had not used red or black rice. It was my turn to choose the #156th theme. I thought let the group get an opportunity to try out rice other than white which they’ve not used. For me it was simple, out came the packet of forbidden rice as its also called to make the pudding.…

    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,…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME:EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 19 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When Srivalli first suggested the themes for this Mega Blogging Marathon my mind was set on the breakfast theme. Little did I know that I would truly be exploring flavors from other countries and some from countries I’d not heard of like Tatarstan. At that time the only breakfast dishes that I could see were French Toast, different bakes, oatmeals, you know the usual Sunday brunch items.  When I decided to take on the challenge of making breakfast dishes from A-Z, that’s when a whole world of different breakfast dishes opened up. Today’s breakfast is…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 10 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” One of the most difficult letter to find a breakfast dish is J. I say one of because I still have to figure out what I’ll be doing with X. Last minute idea is there where I might use the word Xtra and prepare something. However, being a teacher the misspelling bothers me. Anyway by next week will have some solution to X.  With J after much research I landed on Johnnycakes. There aren’t many options unless you use the word jam and think of a breakfast dish, like jam butter and toast (naahhhh,…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 9 “Breakfast Like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” I’m a little excited and at the same time a bit worried. Pretty soon am moving from Blogger to WordPress. Work is still in progress. I’m keeping all my fingers crossed that the move will be seamless. The new blog was supposed to be ready before I started the Mega Blogging Marathon. Before I posted the first day recipe I was in a dilemma as to should I participate or not. What made me participate is some of the recipes that I had already prepared for the theme. As the saying goes ‘baad mai…

    My babies are Adults My twins turned 32 on 30th March. Boy and girl, just three apart but they are like chalk and cheese, aasman aur zameen as the saying goes—- they understand each other totally and yet are so different. My daughter is like a social bee, making a zillions of friends and thrives in a noisy environment. My son on the other hand prefers to keep to himself and probably wouldn’t survive in a very busy environment.     Its a different kind of feeling, a feeling of pride, satisfaction, joy and happiness when a parent sees their child or children growing up into fine adults and venturing out into the wide world to find their own niche. My eldest one is only…

    The Holiday State    February is when Shhh Cooking Secretly group (started by Priya of Priya’s Versatile Recipes) had a virtual tour of Goa. Its been over 30 years since I’ve visited Goa. I remember when we were passing the town centre, there was a huge crowd of people. We asked the taxi driver what was going on and he replied “koi naya actor ki shooting chal rahi hai, aap ko dekhna hai?” he asked. We asked if he knew the actor and he said no so we didn’t stop to watch. Who was the new actor? None other than Shakrukh Khan shooting for the movie Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa!   I remember we were staying at some hotel in town and would go to the…

    Coconut and Rum Theme: Surfing Through The Caribbeans BM #81- Week 1 Day 3 A Caribbean cuisine theme would be incomplete without a Jamaican dish. Whenever one mentions the Caribbean, Jamaica is what pops up in my mind and I hear its one of the few countries where a Kenyan passport holder can go to without prearranged visa 🙂 A country that has a diverse population, the indigenous tribe, Africans, Indians, Europeans and Chinese. Under the Spanish rule it was called Santiago but after the British took over, they named it Jamaica. Some famous Jamaicans are Bob Marley, the reggae musician, Usain Bolt the sprinter, Chris Gayle cricketeer who plays for West Indies are a few I know of. Ian Fleming writer of James Bond…

    Healthy curry Theme: Healthy Weekday Lunches BM#77 Week 4 Day 1 Most of us love our rich gravies and curries. To prepare them we add a bit more oil or ghee so that the masalas fry well, we add cream, we add nuts etc etc. No doubt they turn out yummy but having a rich curry everyday for lunch or dinner is not healthy. However, that does not stop me from making the curries. I try and use very little oil, go easy on the spices and replace the cream with nut meals or coconut milk. For the Healthy Weekday Lunches theme at Blogging Marathon I decided to make Chickpea and Sweet Potato Curry. This curry is light on the stomach, healthy and one can…

  • 631. Pina Colada Overnight Oats

    Sea, sand and Pina Colada      Ok, its not the drink Pina Colada that I’m going to blog about. However, the name Pina Colada makes one think of sunny sandy beaches, blue seas and lazing on the sunbed with a Pina Colada to keep you cool.       The #FoodieMonday #Bloghop group decided on #Coconutmilk as the #86th theme. I was happy as I could just think of pina colada muffins (which has been on my ‘to do’ list for ages). However, hubby dear dashed all my hopes of baking muffins as he just said pretty adamantly ‘no baking muffins in this house, there’s been too many muffins.’ Truthfully, haven’t blogged a new muffin recipe in a long time, but how do I explain…
