Little Effort Apple Crisp

I know a lot of us crave something slightly sweet after a long day of fasting, or even on a regular day as a pick me up. This dessert is your cure for a long, warm day. Warm apple crisp with cold ice cream. Most of its sweetness comes from freshly baked apples and a…

Homemade Kulfi par excellence (Desi Ice Cream)

So, we had an excess of barfi left over, and it was becoming hard and dry, and getting to the stage where no one wanted to eat it anymore. It seemed such a pity to throw away a decent amount of barfi. I felt like it needed to be upcycled.

Nuts about You! – Hazelnut Cheesecake (No-Bake)

This decadent, pleasing-to-the-taste buds recipe is really quite simple. It’s a hazelnut cheesecake, and I know I normally only trust baked cheesecakes because they come across as more fulfilling, but this one is a keeper.

Devilish Decadence – Nutella Double Chocolate Brownies

So yes, these are the best brownies ever. I don’t like cake-y, egg-y brownies. In fact we all like them fudgey, and more on the bite into this and it melts in your mouth style. What makes them so special is the few optional add on ingredients that just take it to the next level: Nutella, chocolate chips or chunks and walnuts. The result is an ooey gooey, soft on the inside, silky smooth chocolate decadence that is sure to please each of the five senses.

Treasure Island Bars

Sometimes we browse online looking for recipes and feel overwhelmed by the amount of work or steps most recipes seem to have. So they look good enough to look at but don’t seem like they’re worth the time and energy. I’m sure all of you have had that experience at some point or the other,…

Jiggle Jiggle Jelly

OMG! What a pleasant surprise this recipe was. It was so easy. I had very low expectations when making this because I thought it wouldn’t set and just end up being an epic fail. But it was quite the opposite. Throw away those boxes of instant jelly filled with sugar, artificial flavors and God knows…

Blissful Nutella Croissant Bread & Butter Pudding

So this week brought an exciting discovery. I always wanted to make a melt-in-your-mouth kind of a bread and butter pudding, but have never been a fan of the taste of white bread and milk put together, reminds me of when I was sick with mumps as a child. I had heard of opting to…

Revani/Rivani/Ravani – what’s in a name?

I asked my fellow foodies on our Facebook page if they thought the next post should be Desi or something else. We couldn’t come to a conclusion and I had to break my lazy phase of not making something that I deemed ‘postable’ and my posts have been long due. Also I felt like trying…

Gulab Jamun

I suppose it was about time I put up a real desi dessert that included both ghee and shakar right? One of my favorite desi desserts is homemade Gulab Jamun. These succulent dough-ey balls are deep fried to a lovely auburn hue and then immediately placed in a cardamom infused sugar syrup to soak in…
