Rajasthani Ghevar Topped With Kesar Rabdi - SNC Challenge 4

Hurray !! At last completed my Jan month SNC challenge today :) I was worried all these days that I might be unable to do this yummy sweet coz of relatives at home.. But some how managed to prepare this today. I have thank my mom, chithi and my periamma who helped a lot in preparing and tasting :) I must say that this sweet is JUST DIVINE !!! Every spoon n every bite made me feel like in heaven :) Special thanks to Manju, who introduced this finger licking delicious traditional sweet... I am really very happy that my family members and relatives enjoyed this sweet alot... In fact, they all noted down this recipe to try later :) Actual recipe calls for sugar syrup to soak the ghevar... I jus skipped this part for my family members..

SNC challenge is nothing but South - North Team Challenge. Every month one member from south team will challenge the North team and vice versa... This month North team ( Manju ) challenged us with this Rajasthani Ghevar and the south team ( Ramya ) challen…

Plantain Corn Rice / Raw Banana Corn Rice / Lunch Box Recipes

Life has become very busy n hectic, starting from this year... Continuous travel and guests filled in our home one after the other for their holidays... Enjoying every minute but unhappy that I am not able to concentrate on blogging. Planning to manage time so that I will not miss my virtual friends:)
And coming to today's recipe...After a long time tried this innovative delicious lunch box variety today and served with onion raita and chips. Had one bowl of cooked basmati rice in my fridge, so used that flavorful rice to prepare this plantain corn rice. Instead the same can be tried with the boiled rice or raw rice. But adding basmati rice gives a yummy briyani flavor. Very simple recipe and perfect for kids.
