Kesari is a very commonly made sweet all across India. It is like a halwa but has a league of its own. Kesari or kesari bhaat or sheera is made with rava as the base. It can then be laced with different flavours like kesar, elaichi etc. The liquid added can be either milk or water, if making it with milk, check out my haal kesari recipe. Here I have made a pineapple kesari!
Kesari can be enriched with extra flavours by adding a fruit or fruits into the mix. Pineapple, apple, mango, banana can go into making kesari. Pineapple kesari is one of the most famous ones amongst the lot! It is rich as it is made with pure desi ghee and loaded with cashews and raisins. ... “Pineapple Kesari | Pineapple Sheera | Kesari Recipes”

The word ‘chocolate’ can perk up anybody’s mood. Just hearing the word makes one want to pop a piece or two in their mouth. So much so, I went ahead and made these eggless chocolate pancakes. Are they for breakfast or are they for dessert, one may ask! I don’t mind to eat them either way.
Extra decadence comes in the form of hot chocolate ganache (fudgy sauce) poured over chocolatey light eggless chocolate pancakes.

Creamy, dreamy and oozing with flavour of variety of fruits – fruits and cream
11/02/2017 6:08:37 PM vindhyadesai
A bowl of cut fruits seems boring and tasteless. But fresh fruits are good for you, they are rich in fibre and nutrients. But once in a while how about enriching your bowl of fruits by adding some sweetened cream. Especially when guests are over and you want to make something quickly but still special. Fruits and cream is the answer 🙂
You can use any kind of fresh ripe fruits to make your own version of fruits and cream. Infact the best way to serve this and make it look fancy is by presenting a fruits and cream buffet. Assorted bowls of fruits cut up or sliced. Then beside it lay out a big bowl of beaten, thickened luscious sweetened cream to pour on top. ... “Fruits and Cream | Creamy fruit salad | Dessert Recipes”
Luscious, decadent, laced with mild fragrance of kesar & elaichi, kesar elaichi shrikhand
10/30/2017 3:07:13 PM vindhyadesai
Some recipes like shrikhand may seem daunting to make. But with a little effort it can be very easy to prepare. This is also one of those recipes which can be made ahead of time. That is why I love sweets, they taste better as they sit. This mildly flavoured kesar elaichi shrikhand is definitely one such recipe.
I can lap up kesar elaichi shrikhand anytime and it tastes great with these puffy whole wheat puris. Making the hung curd is the most important step. Please follow the stepwise recipe to make hung curd here. Or you can also use store-bought strained yogurt to do this and the Greek yogurt is a candidate for this. ... “Kesar Elaichi Shrikhand | Sweet Recipes”

Mango kesari – a twist on the traditional kesari with delicious in season mango flavours
05/29/2017 4:51:50 PM vindhyadesai
I just love the mango season. So many recipes to try out with mangoes. Mangoes are truly the king of fruits in the real sense. It blends well with in so many dishes. Like the signature haal kesari dish or sheera made into something extraordinary like mango kesari. Spectacular!
It’s truly a treat for the senses. It is visually very appealing and the taste is simply ‘mango’ (see what I did here!). One of the best and simplest sweet dishes I have tried in recent times. It is the ultimate celebration of juicy ripe mangoes.
Hurry, the mango season just might be over prematurely owing to the torrential rains! Line it up though, all you mango lovers, this dish takes mango to a new level. It works so well in this kesari. ... “Mango Kesari | Mango Sheera | Mango Recipes”
