For the final day of no bake desserts, here is one more recipe which I made using rasmalai. You would be wondering why I was having so much of left over rasmalai? Wait till tomorrow or go to my YouTube channel for my new video today. You will understand why. I was doing single portions for all these three days as I am off sugar for the past six months and the only person who can eat sugar is Sruti. So these are single serving desserts just made for her. And she is so enjoying this theme.

Glass desserts are a craze among home bakers and clients. I have been seeing a lot of delicious glass desserts in my FB feed. The flavours are so exotic. And as a baker it is a great way of taking care of all the left over cream, frostings and cake scraps too. When I saw the theme No Bake Lazy Day Desserts for BM this month, I chose it immediately. Being a cake decorator, I am always left with some cake, cream or ganache and what a better way to use them all up.
Since the mango season started blogosphere is flooded with mango recipes and one of the most posted recipes is the Mango Mastani. Mango Mastani’s origin can be traced back to Pune. It is a mango milkshake usually served with icecream and nuts. But I have made a little different version. As I told you earlier, I am trying to give only healthy foods to Sruti and though she was asking me for a glass of mango mastani for a long time, I was just postponing it. Many recipes I read used icecream in both the milk shake and the topping. I wanted to skip the icecream part but didn’t have a clear idea of what to do instead.
So what is probiotic? Usually we tend to be afraid of bacteria and our body thrives to keep the bad bacteria out. But there are also good bacteria which helps us. Those are called as probiotics and the drinks loaded with such probiotics are called as probiotic drinks. Yogurt is one of the vastly used probiotic drink. While yogurt contains just 2-7 types of probiotics, kefir contains 10-34 types of probiotics. Kefir is nowadays available at some speciality stores. The most common probiotic drink available is Yakult, which I haven’t tried so far. But the problem with store bough ones is the added flavours and preservatives and sugar.
My daughter is a chocoholic and she also loves her coffee. She loves every drink I make based on these two ingredients. So for this summer, I wanted to make her a drink which will awe her. I kept it as a secret from her. I made the mocha and refrigerated it two days back. And on the day of serving, she was so surprised that I took out the cream and was whipping it with some coffee. As she knows that I will never taste that cream, it can mean only one thing, it was for her and she started nagging me with questions. What are you doing? I said surprise!
Peynirli Cicek Pogaca literally translates to Cheese Flower pastry. Pogaca are savoury pastries filled with cheese, olives and potatoes and available all over Turkish bakeries. They are enjoyed as breakfast or tea time treats. When I saw the shape of the breads, I just immediately decided to make it for this month’s #BreadBakers theme. The theme was to make a Mother’s day inspired flower bread. There are so many ways to make beautiful shaped breads and this is one of the easiest methods.
Empanadas are pastries or bread stuffed with meat or any other filling. This is a dish common in Spain and Latin American countries. It is either baked or deep fried according to the region it is served. These are so easy to pack and so makes a great snack to take on picnics. I am doing picnic hamper recipes for this week’s BM and this recipe is a part of the theme. As I mentioned earlier, you will be seeing international dishes this week.
Last month, I had so many hurdles and couldn’t even visit my blog regularly. But this month I am trying to get back on track. So I have enrolled for this month’s BM. The themes are quite interesting as always. For the first week, I have chosen the theme Picnic Hampers. So when you go on picnic, what can you take with you to fill the tummies of all the hungry family members. When I was a kid, mom used to make puliodharai and thayir saadam for every picninc we went. And after marriage, even my mom-in-law used to make the same combination. Looks like most of us have grown up with the same food. Even my daughter loves this food. So even I make the same when we go for a picnic. But what can we do if we want to make a change? Go for any food that is easy to pack and doesn’t spill or go bad in the journey. I will be sharing three international recipes which can be packed for picninc and I am sure kids would love it.
