Lebanese is an upcoming cuisine these days which is being shown a lot of love by vegetarians to have something DIFFERENT than the others. A Lebanese Vegetarian platter consists of a pizza base like bread, a chickpea dip, Falafel - a tikky, a curd dip and a salad as the main parts.
Thus, been inspired by the upcoming fashion and love for this cuisine I tried my hands on it as a whole Sunday brunch. I was really happy to find my family liking it and thus sharing the same with all of you as well.
It’s been quite a long time I wrote here with my inventions and testings to provide you with mouth watering yummy dishes. But I am now back with a whole lot of new ideas and inventions from my kitchen. I am nowadays planning to go the other way round by searching for the available ingredients at home and discovering a dish out of that.
Kiwi is one of the most attractively colored fruits which has a wonderful tangy as well as sweet taste. Today my eyes stuck on the kiwi crush bottle kept in my kitchen since summers which was still half filled up. Considering the winters approaching, I decided to try making something yummy from it before it takes a back space in my refrigerator for 3-4 months.
Lovely color with a totally different taste, kiwi is New Zealand’s national fruit which is actually found in two varieties – Green Kiwis and Golden Kiwis. Golden ones are guaranteed sweet kiwis which are generally priced higher than the other. Kiwi is a fruit which came to India as an important fruit a few years back but now is imported in abundant to be found in every fruit shop and with every fruit vendor. Another fact to know about this fruit is that it’s still one of those fruits which is not being sold as per weight but is priced per piece.
I made this souffle from kiwi with my own decisions on quantity of ingredients and surprisingly came up with this mouth watering sweet souffle It tastes best from its frozen properly. Being a souffle it won’t set like an ice cream but will be halfway frozen when its ready.
Recipe – Kiwi Souffle
¾ cup Kiwi Crush or fresh kiwis (finely chopped)
½ cup milk
¼ cup milkmaid
2 tbsp chopped almonds
1 tbsp grated chocolate
1cup vanilla icecream
Mix all the ingredients well.
Pour them in small bowls and cover with foil paper.
Decorate them with mint leaves and kiwi pieces or a cherry to give a contrast color.
Pinacolada has been one of my favorite mock-tails since my childhood. A fruit of my choice, pineapple, topped with coconut has been my love whenever a choice was given. Therefore, I tried my hands on this to make it easy for my taste buds to have them anytime I want. A yellow colored drink with a tinch of soda and garnished with pineapple is best for these summers to make you cool.
1. Grind the pineapple slices and syrup with sugar.
2. Add coconut water and mix well in the grinder.
3. Take long glasses to serve, put this mixture, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and soda on the top.
4. Garnish with pineapple slices and serve chilled.
One of the favorite of all the north Indian food lovers is a brown colored lavishing dish which is tasty yet healthy and is a must accompanying one with paneer and potato dishes. Dal Makhani, with a Punjabi name and a mouth watering taste caters as the main dish for Punjabi north Indian food.
I have my own ways learnt from my mother to make this lip-smacking dal making it healthy and quick to be made.
