Perfect for a cold winter evening, laced with a mild orange flavour, white hot chocolate

A hot cup of tea or coffee is always refreshing. Sometimes you can indulge a bit and choose something like hot chocolate. Today let’s take indulgence a little further and serve up white hot chocolate. White Hot chocolate is decadent and fancy!
White hot chocolate, as you have guessed, has white chocolate, what are the odds. Infact white chocolate is not chocolate at all, it is made of cocoa butter, a by-product of making regular dark/milk chocolate. Here I have used some cooking white chocolate (the kind that is used for baking). But any brand of white chocolate will do. ... “White Hot Chocolate | Orange White Hot Chocolate | Beverage Recipes”
Colourful and fun, homemade tutti frutti for ice creams and baking

As a child I was always fascinated with colourful tutti frutti pieces. I used to like munching on them straight out of the packet. But good tutti frutti is always hard to find as most of them have artificial colours and preservatives. So how about we learn making tutti frutti at home today?
Like with many confectionary items, tutti frutti can be used to make bread, cakes, biscuits and ice cream. It can also be used as topping in many chilled drinks such as mango lassi. I have already posted dil-pasand recipe and used it in thick and delicious mango mastani. Next up however is super delicious eggless tutti frutti ice cream. ... “Tutti Frutti | Homemade Tutti Frutti | Homemade Recipes”

A spicy mouth-watering gojju is always a welcome change from regular saaru or sambar. That is the reason a spicy gojju dish is a must on the menu for a festival or function. Gojjus cleanse the palate and aid in digestion as they have a good balance of all flavours. Take for instance this orange peels gojju, very flavourful, bitter, sour, spicy and sweet all at the same time.
Orange peels gojju along with haagalkayi gojju is one of my favourite gojjus. If you happen to buy organic oranges do try this orange peel gojju, no waste but extra taste 🙂 This orange peel gojju can be eaten with steamed hot white rice. This is also called orange pachadi and is famous in many parts of South India especially in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. ... “Orange Peel Gojju | Orange Gojju | Gojju Recipes”

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”

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”

Orange marmalade made at home, enjoy it smeared on toast
22:40:13 05/26/2016 vindhyadesai
Orange marmalade is a fruit preserve made with oranges(obviously) and lemon, boiled with sugar till it is set. The speciality of a marmalade is peels or shreds of skin are added to get all the flavour of the fruit. Use organic fruits where possible especially when consuming the skins or peels. Preserving sugar or regular granulated sugar can be used. Lemon juice cuts through the sweetness of the oranges and gives a nice zing between orange flavours. Taste the oranges before making the marmalade, if the juice is bitter try avoiding those oranges. I learnt to make this from a recipe published by a supermarket. They make it in bulk, I have adapted the recipe to yield about 400-450 gm of marmalade. Orange marmalade on buttered toast is the best way to eat this. I also make other jams like, strawberries, cranberries, mixed fruits, mango morabba(gulambu), grapes, will post them all soon. ... “Orange Marmalade”
