Crunchy on the outside and juicy inside, rustic golden spirals that make a centerpiece at every festival in India – Jalebi! People like it for breakfast and people like it for dessert. Some like it hot and crispy, others prefer it soft and at room temperature. It can be either served with sweet rabdi or with cold sour yogurt. It’s tough to not pick one when you see a pile of Jalebi gleaming in golden syrup.

But this version of almond milk is different than that non-dairy versions you'll see in the grocery store, and a famous Indian drink is prepared by slow simmering dairy milk with almond paste, cardamoms and saffron. It’s creamy luscious that can be enjoyed warm during winter months and cold during summer days.
Makhane Ki Kheer/Phool Makhane Kheer is a creamy Indian pudding prepared with fox nuts. It is a traditional dessert prepared during festive season, especially Navratri.

Ras meaning juice and Malai meaning cream, are juicy and spongy fresh cottage cheese dumplings in creamy cardamom and saffron milk. Rasmalai is one of those famous Indian desserts that always brightens the festive mood. This festive season, I made this dessert twice. That’s how much we love this dessert. Diwali, the festival of light, is right around the corner and this year, I decided to do a virtual potluck with some of my favorite food bloggers. There is an array of treats from savory to sweet. If only I could transform this potluck from virtual to real!
Murgh Malaiwala is a rich milk based chicken curry prepared using aromatic dried herbs, nuts and milk. Unlike most other chicken curry, this particular chicken curry is off white in shade or sometime mild orange because of the addition of saffron.
In my world, if there is one little thing that can bring a smile to anyone's face, it will be homemade cookies. Sometimes with chocolate chips hidden in it and sometimes, without any surprising element. Just plain, buttery and delicious with lots of flavor! I think it helps keeping the child inside us alive and that is why, we all love cookies any time.
As a kid, butter was the answer to everything that my taste buds wouldn't approve. Drop a spoonful here, spread a little more there and I would eat like a happy bunny. Sometimes, Mom would make butter at home and other times, we would depend on India's favorite brand 'Amul - utterly butterly delicious' :) I loved butter with anything and since my metabolism was pretty good back then, I had to never worry about the fats.
