Read on to know The Best Homemade Cream Cheese Recipe. I have made cream cheese at home already which is my go to recipe till now. You can watch the video and read about it at Home made Cream Cheese. But after I started using the liquid rennet for my cheese making, I was searching for a recipe for cream cheese too. The recipe I have posted before is just a substitute for cream cheese and can be made with paneer and curd. It is effective but it is still not very smooth. There is a slight grittiness from the paneer, however you grind it. I even have got queries about making smooth cream cheese as we get in shops. But at that time, I didn’t know about it and so I couldn’t give them a better recipe. But don’t worry, it works great in all cream cheese related recipes. I have already made no bake cheese cake, baked cheese cake, cream cheese cookies and many more. But if I tell you that there is one more recipe which gives you the smoothest cream cheese, will you say no to it? Of course not.

After two simple recipes, here is one slightly tough to make dessert recipe which was loved by my daughter. Of all the three this was her most favourite as this was completely made with chocolate. With a dark chocolate eggless cake and a creamy dark chocolate mousse, this is also topped with a chocolate glaze and chocolate vermicelli. I am sure this would be an amazing dessert for all chocolate lovers over there. The mousse is so light and cuts the overload of chocolate and makes it a pleasant well balanced dessert.
Time flies so fast and we are in the third week of Blogging Marathon this month. For the third day, I have chosen the theme Holiday Dishes. My kiddo enjoyed nearly one and a half months of summer holidays and went to school only today. Keeping kids occupied during holidays is a difficult job and filling their tummies is too much hard work. Whenever my daughter gets bored, she asks for snacks. And I had to control the amount given as there were so many snack breaks during the day. As summer was at its peak during holidays, I made lots of cool drinks, ice creams and chilled dishes to beat the heat.
From the day I posted the Eggless Black Forest Cake Recipe, I have been getting numerous queries on White Forest Cake. So what is white forest cake? It is the opposite of Black Forest Cake. With white chocolate cake, the layers are filled and frosted with whipped cream and decorated with white chocolate. I decided to make a video for the recipe to make the demonstration easier. I have decided to make cake videos every week and so if you want me to do a cake with simple decorations, pour in your suggestions. I will be happy to do.
Last week, Madurai was so hot, I felt like running away to Munnar. Wherever I went, I took the pedestal fan along with me as ceiling fan was not doing its work properly. Working in the kitchen was the toughest job of all. But I had guests during that time, so couldn’t stay away from kitchen. My nephew is one of my fan when it comes to cooking. He loves most of the dishes I create and so if he visits, I make sure to prepare varieties of bakes and desserts. There were some mangoes and to beat the heat, I made these extremely delicious mango creamsicle for the kids.
I bought a pack of vegan whipping cream a while back. After using it once, I had it stored in my freezer for long. As no one at home liked the taste of vegan cream on cakes, I never bothered to use it again. But I also couldn’t let it freeze there for ever. I remembered one of my friend saying that this whipping cream makes great ice cream with a little bit of pudding powder. So thought of giving it a try. Keeping my fingers crossed I made it one day. From that day on, when ever I need an ice cream topping, this ice cream is coming for my rescue. Daughter is loving it so much.
When I posted rose milk popsicle recipe, one of my friends asked me to try out jigarthanda popsicle. If you are new to this word, then you need to take a look at my Jigarthanda post. Jigarthanda is a famous drink in Madurai, my home town. For the scorching heat this is a thirst quencher and you can see so many road side stalls selling this drink. This can be called as the sister to Falooda. The main ingredient of this drink is baadam pisin, which looks like pebbles. But when soaked overnight, they turn into soft fluffy mass which resembles jelly. This is a coolant and when added to the milk based drink it takes the flavour to a new level. You need to try it at least once to know how it tastes.And another ingredient which gives the jigarthanda its unique flavour is Nannari/ Sarasaparilla syrup. It is available ready in stores, so need to prepare it at home. The proportion cannot be termed accurately. You can add ingredients as per your taste.
Nowadays I have become so lazy that I don’t cook properly in my home. Breakfast is usually sola dosai accompanied by some gravy or chutney. For lunch no one stays at home and as it for myself, I make it so simple. By the time night arrives, I will be totally exhausted that again we eat dosai for dinner. I have stopped trying different cuisines and that is mainly because I have stopped regular blogging and have stopped taking part in Blogging Marathon. Last time when I met Srivalli, she insisted I take up BM if not regularly at least for two weeks a month. I felt that it was a good idea and it will surely pull me back to regular blogging and trying my hand at various cuisines. So I signed up for two weeks this months and selected two very good themes for this BM. For the first week I will be doing three dishes which are made for festivals across the globe. So I have chosen three festivals and three countries. I wanted them to be authentic recipes and at the same time vegetarian. And I got hold of such recipes and I was so happy that I tried. All the three dishes turned out absolutely delicious. So we will look at the first dish I made.
So I decided upon Mawa cake which has the palkhova flavour and a mousse incorporating all the ingredients of jigarthanda. The soaking syrup is nannary and as the cake needs to be refrigerated, I went for cream frosting. As I love eggless baking I went for an eggless cake and eggless gelatin free mousse. The combination worked so well. We really enjoyed it. The mousse I prepared for the cake was too much. So I made sure that we had a wonderful dessert for the next few days. WIll be posting that recipe later but for now enjoy the Jigarthanda cake.
