As I mentioned in my last post, candy is testing my patience. Yesterday, I had planned on a vegetarian marshmallow. The mixture turned out beautifully and I let it set for 2 hours. But even after the setting time, my marshmallow didn’t set and I found that the problem was with the veg gelatin I used. So I just skipped posting yesterday as I was so frustrated. But I couldn’t skip it today also. I was searching for a foolproof easy breezy recipe when I stumbled on white chocolate fudge. There are too many versions of the fudge, some were even complicated, but I stayed away from those recipes. I went for a microwave version of an easy recipe. This recipe is so easy that even a kid can do it.

This no bake Crustless Pistachio Saffron Cheesecake shots are my entry for the third day of dessert in glass theme. Yesterday I was telling you about my experiments with the cheese cake mixture which sets beautifully and slices neatly without melting. I have happy news to share. I just found out the best cheesecake mix recipe using china grass. From now on, I will be doing different cheesecakes without the danger of failure. And with the best home made cream cheese recipe, I think my folks at home are going to be really happy.
When I come to the end of any mega marathon, I get a feeling of accomplishment and content. So on the final day of this mega marathon, I am so happy that I could give you all a month long treasure trove of recipes which was loved by all in the family. And September also marks the birthday of my beautiful blog baby. She is my younger child as I have given so much attention which I usually give to my daughter Sruti. And my blog turned 6 this month on 17th. I wanted to make a celebration post but couldn’t do it as I was so busy with posting other recipes. So I decided to make the last post of the month as a celebration post.
For the third day of frozen treats, I have an awesome treat for you. When I made Basundi for the Indian Milk Sweets series, we couldn’t finish it off as it was too rich. I had a plan which I didn’t mention to my daughter. In fact, I kept this idea a secret until it was ready to be relished. You know children, once we talk to them about an idea, they start pestering until we get sick of that idea itself. So I have started keeping my ideas secret and just surprise my daughter with whatever I make. As I have mentioned in Basundi post, it takes a lot of time to make it from scratch. No short cuts. And the final result is a rich, decadent bowl of basundi. If you couldn’t eat it all, than here is the plan.
For the third day, here is a famous sweet from North. I am always confused with basundi and rabdi. When I read about those, some said that rabdi was thicker and basundi is a little thinner than rabdi. Following those instructions I made basundi. It is a quite rich dessert full of nuts and thick reduced milk. I reduced the sugar to make it mildly sweet, even then we couldn’t consume more than a few teaspoons. Serve this chilled and you will be in heaven. There are so many ways to make quick basundi, but I took the longer route.
While I was on a recipe hunt for the festivals across the globe theme, I wanted to include Ramadaan as now it is the month of Ramadaan and my neighbours fast for the whole month. I love Arabian sweets. With cheese and flaky pastries they are so delicious and whenever I try a recipe, it used to be a super hit at home. So when I found the atayef recipe, I didn’t hesitate. There are so many varieties of atayef available in the blog world. There are cheese fillings and nut fillings. They are baked or deep fried or just served as it is with a drizzle of sugar syrup. I put together two or three recipes together to come to this recipe.
For this month’s Baking Eggless Challenge , I selected a delicious fudgy brownie recipe from Joy the Baker. If you are new to this space and couldn’t make heads or tails of what I am talking about please take a look at the Baking Eggless group page to know more about the event. This brownie is loaded with chocolate and nuts and will surely make any one who is an ardent fan of chocolate, drool. I was waiting for an occasion to bake these brownies as I didn’t want to end up eating half the batch. So when my daughter was telling me about her friends who love my bakes, she told that the brownies she took to school on her birthday was polished off immediately and her friends are waiting for one more treat like that. Even her class teacher during a meet told me that the brownies were absolutely delicious. To please her friends who are hard core fans of my bakes, I made these brownies and sent them with my daughter. And she came back with an empty box.
Even though I started the New Year with a nice note and started taking part in group challenges, there were some problems with my internet connection. My 3G data card started behaving weird. It worked when others used it but whenever I sat before my PC, it stopped working. I tried and tried a lot to post this but after a week of struggling with the data card, I just stopped trying. Till now hubby is clueless why it is not working for me. I think my data card doesn’t want me to blog!!!! Today surprisingly it is working and I am not going to waste a single second….
