Avocado Mousse

Avocado mousse is a sweet and refreshing summer treat. The soft and creamy texture of avocado makes it a favorite choice for desserts. You will love this wonderful mousse. For me it was a perfect treat for a weekend brunch :) This recipe is super easy and resembles the Persian cream recipe (yaa we owe to the French cuisine for this fluffy,airy dessert). It is absolutely no cooking and all you need is a food processor to blend in all the ingredients and cool it. Mine was not a very smooth paste as I was a bit lazy then.  I did not use gelatin as this mousse naturally attains a thick fudge like texture, but you can use gelatin if you wish to bind the mousse into desired shapes.

Avocado - 2 large
Cold heavy cream- 1cup
Condensed milk- 1/3 cup
Confectionery sugar- 3-4 tsp
Lemon Juice- 1 whole

Whip cold cream with sugar till it stands in medium stiff peaks and put it back in the refrigerator.
Cut avocado into half, and scoop out the fleshy part. Put it in a food processor along with lemon juice and blend it into a fine paste. In a large mixing bowl combine avocado paste, whipping cream, condensed milk . Gently fold in all the ingredients and refrigerate for at least two hours. Serve chilled.

Try this recipe..

Hope you will all enjoy.

It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Mutton Fry

Mutton Fry (updated pic)

This is a recipe for delicious Kerala style mutton fried with a blend of exotic spices and regional flavors.It is simple and quick recipe and should admit that I loved this ever since I have tasted it. This is not deep fried as the name suggest,but is first cooked and then slightly pan fried.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
