Chocolate-Strawberry-Oat Truffles

We’re celebrating this blog’s 50th post today, and it really means so much to have reached this milestone! It has been a while since Nithya first started this blog, and we’ve surely learnt a lot through this journey. We thank everyone for their patience and support 🙂 I follow a number of Vegan bloggers on YouTube,…

Easy Biscuit – Dark Chocolate – Dairy Milk Caramello Truffles

These truffles come together in a pinch. They’re really, really easy to make, and don’t contain any complicated methods or crazy combination of ingredients. I made these for a colleague and friend’s farewell at office, and it received rave reviews 😀 I’d taken exactly 6 of them, wondering how they’d receive it. I needn’t have…

Fried Fruit Pies filled with Cranberry & Blackberry Orange Jam

Hello!   For people who know DH, he’s generally very calm and collected about things. And when I say things, I also mean in his reaction to food. Its really rare that I’ve seen him enthusiastically appreciate food and ask for more. The most superlative acknowledgement coming from him so far has been ‘its good’;…

Mango & Cardamom Pannacotta with Berry Coulis – No gelatine

Hello !   This is my first ever try at making pannacotta. My interest in making this Italian dessert stems from watching Masterchef Australia, where contestants put up endless varieties of  lip-smacking pannacotta in beautiful shapes and sizes of glasses. My only problem – being a vegetarian, I was reluctant to use animal gelatine. So…

Basundhi

I’m a milk-sweet fiend. I prefer milk-based sweets, mostly bengali sweets and sweets that are creamy and nice 😀 Although I do love the occasional gulab jamoon and jalebis, I’d any day pick a sweet that is creamy and yummy over something that isn’t. Halwas are an exception to this rule. I made this delicious…

Easy Badam Halwa

  I’ve been wanting to make Badam halwa since Diwali last year, but for some reason it never happened. DH is having a potluck at office today, and he asked me what I wanted to make. When I was thinking some kind of variety rice, he suggested dessert. I jumped at the chance and immediately…

No-bake Nutella and Raspberry Jam Tarts

  This dessert is a cinch to make. No oven required, not even a stove. No meticulous stirring or measuring of ingredients needed. Just throw in dollops of stuff together to make this absolutely delectable dessert that I guarantee will disappear in minutes!!! The juicy raspberry jam centre is a perfect complement that gives spurts…

Homemade Cardamom & Strawberry Ice cream – Eggless

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice cream!! 😀 I am an ice cream fiend. There is an Ice Cream Works store near my place, which I totally adore for their yummy and delightful variety of ice creams. They have an amazing variety of frozen yoghurt as well. I am usually the first…

Chocolate Cream Pot with Melty Yogurt Centre

This dessert was born out of necessity. Or craving. The absolute necessity to eat something sweet one late afternoon. I was craving for something that was pannacotta-ish, after watching re-runs of Master Chef Australia contestants churning out an endless number of  fabulous looking pannacottas in myriad flavours on TV. For me, the problem with making…
