Gajjar ka Halwa Recipe

Gajar ka Halwa is a light nutritious dessert with less fat than many other typical South Asian desserts. The dessert is traditionally eaten during all of the festivals in India, mainly on the occasion of Diwali.It has a medium shelf life so its always better to prepare little and consume early.

As per Wiki, In 300 grams of gajar halwa there are 268 calories (76 come from fat, 180 from carbohydrate and 16 from protein). It can be prepared easily usin g microwave or pressure cooker but i dont like that taste, since gajjar doesnt get enough time to soak and dry. To add rich taste to your halwa, so that its melts in mouth, cook it in milk, and add khoya at end.

So let me share my recipe ,which is very easy and taught to me by my Mom and grandma.

Time to cook : 1.5hrs

Ingredient:

  • 2kg carrot (गाजर)
  • 400 gm Khoya (400 ग्राम खोया)
  • 250 gm Sugar (चीनी)
  • ½ litre milk (1/2 लीटर दुध)
  • 50 gm each of almond, nuts & raisins (50 ग्राम कटी हुई बादाम, काजू ,किशमिश)
  • 1 spoon cardamom powder (इलायची )

Collage

Method of Preparation:

  1. Peel, wash and then grate the carrots. You can grate it manually using grating tool or you can use food processors to ease out your work. (take 15mins)
  2. Heat a pan and put the grated carrot and cook on medium flame till the raw smell disappears. (approx. 20-25 mins). Don’t hurry to go to step 3. Let water evaporate properly so that carrot can consume Milk nicely in next step. If you leave carrots slightly wet then Milk will not be properly consumed by carrot and it will not melt properly in mouth at the end.
  1. Add milk and boil on low flame till thick. You can put a lid over your pan and relax for sometime. It will take minimum 20 mins. You can stir in between so that carrot doesn’t stick to your pan.
  2. Once it starts thickening ,add sugar and stir. Cook on low flame for further thickness. When you add sugar, it will again leave lot of water, so cook evenly to let water evaporate. This step again takes 15-20 mins. Stir in between.
  3. Meanwhile grate khoya and keep aside.
  4. Once you see carrots are dried (least wet), add Khoya, which you have grated before.
  5. Continue to cook and stir the carrot mixture till it dries.
  6. Add cardamom powder and stir.
  7. Finally garnish with almond, nuts and raisins.

Carrot Halwa or Gajjar ka Halwa is ready. Serve hot

Tucked in one corner of Galleria, this is the lone & fun travel cafe in Gurgaon!  Cafe Wanderlust‘s decor is idiosyncratic , focused on people who love to explore and try new delicious delicacies. Its located at the back side of Galleria ,1st floor and seems just like a typical cafe but they have quirky ambience. They have sufficient space which looks bounteous, because of its seating arrangement, ranging from bean bags to old steel chairs to Hanging Jhulla & Egg chairs. Walls are covered with book shelves and customers valuable comments. Games are available to sit and play while your order gets prepared. This makes the customer use his or her time in meaningful way. Sometimes you may find paper and color pens to draw and write not just about the cafe but anything.

The menu is full of pictures of food items they serve along with small description of its history.The cafe is vegetarian. They serve different continental platters for breakfast. The food is not at all oily and has perfect blend of spices.

Best part of their food is, its served with so many sidings, like chutneys of Apple, mango, dhaniya, then Kaanji, raita, pickle etc. So many ways to flavor your food as per your tongue. Sweet to tangy to spicy.We have kicked off our evening with scrumptious delicacies like:

Taken from streets of Banaras & served with dash of innovation. Four soft kachoris filled with banarsi masala, served with spicy aloo subji & 6 kinds of dips (Methi, Dhaniya, imli, apple cardamom, papaya pickle & raita). Banarsi masala is in-house prepared using ground fresh spices.

Amritsari Cholley Bhature

Everyone and especially punjabi’s all time fav homemade cholley with freshly done bhature. Imli chutney & raddish pickle add a tangyness to it making it more eatsome. Best part of this place is all the masala’s are inhouse. The taste and aroma spring from age old recipes from traditional household.

Face gels are a trend in now a days and especially Acne related. They have many ingredients which help to treat acne and as well help skin to grow radiant.I recently purchased Fuschia Face gel for my sister and suggested her to use it for her Acne problem. Let me share my opinion about it.

From natural ingredients to manufacturing process , from Unique Packaging Styles To Eco-Friendly Policies, brand stands apart from most other Cosmetic Brands. Their constant efforts to provide customers the best & at the sametime contributing towards saving our ecosystem makes its products , much in demand.

Product Description

Neem & Basil essential oil prevent acne outburst & heal inflamed skin, cuts & wounds. This combination tightens pores, lightens dark spots & brightens the skin to give a more youthful look.This product is made from Natural ingredients and essential oils.

DSC_1737

It doesnt encourages the practices, that may harm the user or the environment.So its Eco-friendly with its product development too. It contains no petroleum based ingredients, sulfates or parabens. It’s pure & natural with no synthetic preservatives.

These products are certified by Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The certification ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards, minimizing the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production starting from materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff.

By opting for this, one can reduce his/her carbon footprint as there are chemicals or petroleum products are involved which relatively have a higher carbon footprint when compared to organic alternatives.

Store: Store in cool & dry place.

How to Use: Use these masks once or twice a week Apply a layer of this mask even over your skin and relax for 15-20 minutes. Once dry, rinse with plain or cold water.

DSC_1738

Packaging:

It comes in a small cute tub like jar with screw open lid which shuts tightly and prevents any spillage.

My take on it :

The gel is pale green in color and has refreshing fragrance. Its easy to use as it has big opening.Spreads very easily and gets completely absorbed by the skin with a little massage (i prefer circular motion). Should be usually applied during the night time before going to bed, as it helps skin to rejuvenate & show effects sooner.It doesn’t sting or irritate my skin, but rather it has a cooling effect.She has been using this gel since quite a while now, its really good

Will rate it 4/5, and definately buy it next time !!

Thanks for reading. Do leave your valuable comments !! Take care

 

GO Gourmet..Fresh snacks to dine at home !!

Gourmet s a cultural idea associated with the culinary arts of fine food and drink,  which is characterized by refined, even elaborate preparations and presentations of aesthetically balanced meals of several contrasting, often quite rich courses. The term and its associated practices are usually used positively to describe people of refined taste and passion. Gourmet food tends to be served in smaller, more expensive, portions.

Being true to its meaning, Go Gourmet, is serving a tasty mix of  Salads & healthy food.It brings its own dash of cookery craziness to the table for those hungering for some scrumptious delicacies.

Gourmet restaurants are going a step further to cater to customers—by giving them the option to dine at home. Delivery services are quick and try to reach us on time as its essential that the packaging retain the freshness and quality of the chef-driven contents.

Parcel packaging is well planned showcasing the ingredients and calories intake. We placed an order for:

1) Falafel Wrap – It was so well stuffed , wholesome Falafel, hummus & veggies in a multi grained tortilla. It tasted well,but lil on spicy end
2) Classic Egg Sandwich – It was a classic combo of egg, whole wheat bread, flavored well with mustard and herbs. Tasted good.
3) BBQ Chicken Wrap – It was really good. It was flavoured Chicken breast piece stuffed in multi grain tortilla. chicken was very juicy and well spiced.
4) Shikanji – as usual they serve beverages with original content. Best in taste
5) Pom Lemonade – Similarly with this. Tasted perfect like fresh juice.

And pictures say it all 🙂

Homemade festive delights with easydiner | Recipes for sweet tooth

Homemade festive delights presented by Nestle Milkmaid & Nestle Grekyo
Festival season is round the clock and we all enjoy eating delightful desserts. So its a call out to all lovely people reading my blog now, here i am with my last event coverage, which happened at Indigo Delicatessen, cyber hub in collaboration with Easydiner last week. We had a fun-filled sweet sweet day as we learned so many dessert recipes from chef Rahul, using Nestle Grekyo Yogurt & milkmaid.
Event was inaugurated by Nestle Product/brand manager , where he described about Nestle and its products, specifically he shared more about Greek yogurt which was VIP guest of tonite.

Do you know Grekyo yogurt of nestle is prepared using different bacteria with milk powder. Shocked to hear it. Read more to know recipes made out of it !!
DSC_1438

Chef Rahul, took over from him and started sharing his secret recipes.

Let me provide you a short overview of the event:
1) Condensed milk cup cake
It was yummlicious cupcake i ever had. Soft and moist from inside decorated with a swirl of delicious buttercream frosting. and butterscotch crunches.
Ingredients:
  • Butter  85gm (room temperature & softened)
  • 250gm Nestle condensed milk
  • 1Egg
  • 1tpsn or 5gm baking powder
  • 125gm of Refined flour
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract
Ready In : 30mins
Serves : 10 people
Steps:
  • Preheat oven to 375f or 190c; line muffin cups with papers.
  • Cream butter till light and fluffy
  • Add Nestle condensed milk gradually and beat both now. Don’t add once else lumps will get created.
  • Add 1egg..if u want to avoid egg, you can add more condensed milk.If you want to add more eggs, do it one at a time.
  • Now add Refined flour (mixed with baking powder). Easily mix & churn so there are no lumps. Don’t move it fast,as it will become sleek
  • Now add Vanilla extract & Keep it aside for 5mins so texture is even.
  • Now fill it up in prepared cups. Don’t overflow, so just fill it up till 2/3 of cup.
  • Preheat it in Oven at 175 degree for 20mins.
Suggestion: Best part of this recipe is No machines required at home. Secondly in cupcakes..use less baking powder as you don’t require much fluffiness.
Icing: For icing your cupcakes, you can use chocolate ganache, as it gives both flavors of a chocolate and full of cream. Its 1/2 choc 1/2 cream. Sometimes prepared in Rum too, to give alcoholic flavor. Else decorate with a swirl of delicious buttercream frosting.

2. Baked yogurt
This recipe can be prepared using any flavored Nestle Grekyo yogurts in less than 15mins and Serves 5 people.This dessert is absolutely divine – just try it once and you will want to make it again and again. Best point here is, we don’t have to remember the chef maths, since all ingredients are used in equal proportions.Its perfect for parties as they can be made ahead of time.Here is how to make baked vanilla yogurt.
Ingredients:
  • 200gm Caramelized Condensed milk ( Its a different ingredient prepared over 4.5hrs in a boiling pan, keep on stirring)
  • 1/2 cup or 200gm Fresh cream
  • 1/2 cup or 200 gm flavored grekyo yogurt
  • 1/2 a teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps:

  • Take a bowl and add in half a cup each of Flavored Grekyo yogurt, heavy cream and condensed milk. In India, we do not get heavy whipping cream. We get only low fat cream and it works fine for this recipe.
  • Now we need to add 1/2 a teaspoon vanilla. We need real good quality vanilla extract for this recipe. Please do not use imitation vanilla.
  • Mix everything well until smooth.
  • Pour it in cups or vodka shot glasses and bake in a 160° Celsius oven for 13-14 minutes. No need to preheat the oven for this recipe.
  • After 15 minutes, the middle of the cup should be jiggly. If its still liquid, bake for a couple of minutes more. Do not let it cook for long else it will become hard. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.

Suggestion: Secret of this recipe is to place the glasses in “Water Bath”, which means hot boiled water.

  • Caffeine, the chemical stimulant in coffee, has antioxidant properties, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines.
  • Caffeine is also moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term by tightening and toning the skin, and improving blood circulation in the skin tissues.

My experience & recommendation:

Now that you know why Ryaal coffee scrub ingredients are the best, and what exactly you are applying on your skin, it’s now time to try it. Buy here

Way to use: I ensure to use it while showering, as it helps me to clean the stuff easily and takes less time. I start with applying it gently in circular motion on my face especially on my nose to clean the blackheads. 1 minute gentle massage is more than enough to get a nice scrubbing effect. Since I have dry & sensitive skin, so doesn’t prefer much of scrubbing. Post that, rinse it off well and now you can notice all the dull & dead skin cells are long gone now.The honey present in the product makes sure to moisturize my skin. My skin does not feel tight or stretchy. It’s all beautiful, soft & smooth.

If still you feel the need for moisturizer, please go ahead ! It’s definitely a great way to wake up and get ready for the day!

Always do a skin test before applying any product. Have mentioned about it in all my previous blogs. Do visit them and read again. After successful skin test  only, i would highly recommend this product for evening scrubs only twice a week. It will help you remove dirt and clean pores. Apply cream and take a beautiful sleep, which will help your skin blossom in morning.People with oily skin, can try it for small patch , and see if it suits them,then only go ahead.
