For the second week of this month’s BM, the theme I selected is so interesting. I am sure many of you would love it. When I saw vegan sweets, I chose it immediately. For me being a vegan is impossible as I survive on Paneer and butter. But I can have some recipes which will be useful for readers and even I could give it to Sruti without much guilt. The first sweet that came to my mind was jelly. And as this is the season of mangoes, I went for mango jelly. I had a pack of orange agar agar which I bought a long time back. I thought it was plain agar agar and bought it but only after coming home I realised that it was orange flavoured agar agar. So it just settled happily in my fridge. I decided to use it in this recipe.

For the second day, here is one more easy breezy dessert you can put together in around fifteen minutes. I am not going for any traditional recipes this week, but am just giving you some good ideas for any party you will be doing for easter or some other occasion. Ever since I bought a pack of dried rose petals from Delhi, I have been using it to top my desserts. My daughter loves it and being the only one who is trying out the desserts, I am quite happy to add the rose petals on them. They look so good and tastes great too.
Pronounced as Chow Chaw, this is a Burmese dessert with agar agar/ china grass and coconut milk. I know Chumkie from the Quilters group- Desi Quilters. She is a wonderful quilter and when browsing through her collection of quilts, I was awestruck. And last week I came across her kitchen blog with a wonderful collection of recipes. She has a lot of Burmese recipes and the first recipe which I wanted to try is this jelly. It looked so nice and as my daughter is a fan of jelly, I made it at once. It turned out super delicious and more than Sruti PK loved it a lot. Even I couldn’t keep my hand off this lovely dessert. It is very easy to prepare and tastes great when served chilled. Thank you Chumkie for the delicious recipe. I made this for the first day of Blogging Marathon Week 3 for the theme After School Bites for Kids. As this is very easy to make you can surprise your kids when they return home from a long day at school. They would surely enjoy this.
