Rose Milk Flavored CornFlour Halwa

Easy and simple sweet for all occasions. I tried this with a twist by adding Rose milk powder for the flavor and shaped them using cookie cutter for kids.

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 Cup Cornflour
  • 2 Cups Sugar

  • 3 Tsp Rose milk Powder
  • 3 Cups Water
  • 5 Almonds
  • 5 Cashews
  • 2 Tbsp Ghee

Method :

Add cornflour in a separate bowl.

 Add the rose milk powder to the cornflour and mix well.
Measure 3 cups of water and add it to the cornflour. Mix well to avoid lumps.
Heat a pan ( Non- stick ) and add the sugar.

Simmer the flame and Wait till the sugar melts.

Add the cornflour water to the melted sugar and stir. Stir continuous to avoid forming lumps.

Once it starts thickening, add the ghee and mix well.
Meanwhile, Chop the Almonds and Cashews finely.
Add the chopped nuts to the halwa and continue stirring till the mixture gets glossy.

Turn off the flame and transfer it to the greased plate.

Slice it with cookie cutter or knife after it completely cool down.
Serve this flavored Halwa and enjoy your day.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

1/2 Kg Sankara Fish / Red Snapper Fish, Cleaned and Washed2 Big Onions, Finely chopped2 Medium sized Tomatoes, Finely Chopped3 Green chillies, sliced

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
