Moist, succulent, utterly delicious, Iyengar bakery style eggless honey cake
12/11/2016 10:06:38 PM vindhyadesai
Moist, melt in the mouth, sweet honey cake reminds me of childhood. This was one of the perks of growing up in the 90’s. A delicacy from the local bakery used to be a treat. Eggless honey cake has to be one of the best cakes on earth. Who agrees with me?
The oozy jam mixture on top of the honey moist cake makes it very succulent. I have used a basic eggless orange cake recipe for this cake. I sometimes also make this eggless honey cake with whole wheat flour using the recipe for whole wheat orange muffins as the base. But to get that authentic moistness I make this cake with all purpose flour. ... “Eggless Honey Cake | Bakery Style Honey Cake | Eggless Cake Recipes”

Luscious and chocolatey basic eggless chocolate cake
11/16/2016 9:30:08 PM vindhyadesai
Chocolate is one of the most favourite flavours in any part of the world. Be it ice creams, cakes or any dessert where chocolate can be incorporated. If not, just smooth chocolate sauce can be drizzled over anything you want. Did you know that chocolate dosas similar to crepes are now in vogue.
This is a basic eggless version of chocolate cake and can be used to make other delicious cakes with thick frosting, layered cakes, festive cakes and much more.
Making cakes does not need to involve eggs at all. Cakes still turn out to be moist and soft. Moreover I have used whole wheat flour to make this cake. And I bet you would not notice any difference. How’s that for a healthier version of your favourite dessert, chocolate cake! ... “Basic Eggless Chocolate Cake | How to make eggless chocolate cake?”
Succulent pieces of toasted bread in sweet condensed milk rich with nuts and kesar
10/26/2016 9:18:34 PM vindhyadesai
Shahi Tukda is a famous dessert/sweet from the Mughlai cuisine. It is made using bread which is toasted lightly golden and reduced thick sweet condensed milk flavoured with elaichi and saffron is poured over these pieces. The pieces of bread absorb this decadent rich liquid and become succulent and flavourful.
This version is a quick one where bread pieces are not dunked in sugar syrup before thick milk sauce is poured over. Many recipes call for dipping toasted bread in sugar syrup to make it extra soft and moist. This will obviously make the dessert extra special. But if you are in a hurry, make this quick version.
Shahi tukda can be made ahead of time and tastes better as it chills in the refrigerator. Make this with a day’s old bread which increases its absorbing capacity. I have used homemade whole wheat bread for this recipe.
Serve this special sweet/dessert as part of your Deepavali/Diwali menu and indulge in some decadence. This sweet is truly fit for a king’s feast! Add these sweets to your list to choose from and make them this Deepavali! Why not try kalakand recipe? ... “Shahi Tukda | How to make quick shahi tukda?”
Fun-filled, ice cream filled, decadent, indulgent ice cream cake
9/09/2016 7:22:33 PM vindhyadesai
Is it a cake, is it ice cream? As the name says, it is ice cream cake. Ice cream filled into a cake base and frozen back to solid. This is recipe number 100, a big milestone for Food Of Interest. Thank you to all those who have liked Food Of Interest and for trying out my recipes. It is my humble effort to try out and document Vegetarian/Vegan recipes from India and all over the world. This decadent, indulgent ice cream cake is adapted from Chef Lorraine Pascale‘s ‘Indulgent Ice Cream Cake’. It has a Swiss roll cake base (plain cake with layers of jam or marmalade all rolled into a tight roll) and vanilla ice cream filling. Use Swiss roll cake if you get it or try homemade one (recipe will be posted on FOI), or use regular Pound cake for the base. Layering a bowl with cling wrap is very essential for the cake to be inverted from the bowl and that resembles a half-spherical cake. More details in the recipe below. Please do share recipes from FOI, try them out and leave feedback on the website in ‘Comments’ section and don’t forget to ‘Rate’ the recipes on the website! 🙂 ... “Ice Cream Cake | Raspberry Swiss Roll Ice-cream Cake”
Flaky and crispy layers with juicy apples served with a homemade custard
08/20/2016 4:22:11 PM vindhyadesai
Thin puff pastry layers with crunch of sugar and juicy fragrant apples baked inside, served with custard and vanilla ice cream, sounds like a great combination for an indulgent dessert. This dessert is a speciality dish from Austria very famously made in one of its cities, Vienna. So here is Dish 6 from the World Cuisine Series from Austria. It is a pastry based dessert made with apples, puff pastry and other dry nuts. Strudel apparently is a word from German language. Traditionally, homemade strudel is a rolled pastry with fillings inside. The first time I tried it, I made it in the traditional way (few photos included from v1). The next time I tried it I made it into a cross between a French apple galette and an Austrian apple strudel, looks exotic and is super scrumptious. This is a very decadent dessert, go easy on the portions but enjoy it once in a while. ... “Apple Strudel – An Austrian speciality dessert”
Super creamy homemade favourite eggless vanilla ice cream
08/09/2016 8:29:13 PM vindhyadesai
I have not met a single soul who does not like ice cream especially vanilla ice cream. It has to be one of the most eaten, desired and versatile desserts in the world. Make ice cream at home without worries of added preservatives, artificial flavours and colours. This recipe does not involve any cooking at all. There is no need of making a custard for this recipe. The most important thing is to keep all ingredients and your ice cream container chilled and cold at all times to prevent crystal formation and solidfication during churning/blending.
I have used my ice cream machine to churn the ice cream mixture. But it can be very easily churned with a simple everyday use electric hand blender which I will describe below. It is a little extra effort when using an electric blender but worth it nonetheless. I do not have to mention the uses of vanilla ice cream, it is super tasty just plain, or with chocolate brownies or simply whipped up into a milkshake like musk melon vanilla milkshake or this decadent peach and blueberry crumble. Oh boy! Super creamy vanilla ice cream! Enjoy! ... “Vanilla Ice cream | Eggless Vanilla Ice cream | No cook vanilla ice cream | Homemade vanilla ice cream”
Dreamy creamy mango kulfi flavoured with pista, elaichi and kesar
07/24/2016 12:46:39 PM vindhyadesai
The most preferred dessert when you are looking for an authentic traditional recipe. Mangoes and thick milk flavoured with elaichi, kesar and pista-badam that is a dream combination of ingredients. It used to be made using thick milk rabri/rabdi and adding flavours to it. As the recipe has evolved over the years, it is made with condensed milk, evaporated milk etc. The thick mixture is then frozen in matkas (earthernware pot) to make matka kulfis. Now, one can buy kulfi moulds from shops or even use glasses to freeze kulfis.

Creamy and delicious seviyaan kheer with roasted dry nuts
07/14/2016 9:40:46 PM vindhyadesai
This is one of the most common sweets/desserts made in India for any festive occasion. For festivals, celebrations, weddings, functions, seviyaan kheer/shaavige kheer is a default option. It tastes good at room temperature or warm or even chilled. I have used whole wheat seviyaan (thin and long) and added less sugar. Add more sugar if you like and add more milk if you want the consistency to be thinner. Chopped dry nuts like almonds, pistachios, cashews and raisins add a wonderful aromatic flavour and crunch. I have dolled up my vermicelli kheer, it is one of my favourite desserts and I love it slightly chilled. ... “Seviyaan Kheer | Whole Wheat Seviyaan Kheer | Shavige Payasa | Vermicelli Kheer”
