Mango Peda/ Two Layer Peda



Milk peda is an all time favorite Indian sweet. This time I wanted to try making it with mangoes ( actually I had one tin of mango pulp). The richness and flavor of this sweet is truly divine. Here I did a two layer peda. First layer is the usual milk peda. You can find the recipe here. I got the idea of using ricotta cheese from Nayana. It saves a lot of time, thanks Nayana...The second layer recipe is as follows.

Ingredients
Ricotta Cheese - 2 cups
Mango pulp- 1 cup
Mawa - 3 tsp
Evaporated  milk- 1/3 cup
Sugar- 1/2 cup ( according to sweetness of Mango)
Cardamon Powder - 1/2 tsp
Badam or pistachios for garnish


In a non stick pan cook mango puree till it is cooked and reduced . Blend in mawa, evaporated  milk and ricotta cheese and stir in medium flame for about eight or ten minutes till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan and becomes a thick mass. Allow it to cool completely and add in powdered sugar and cardamon powder and knead it just like a dough. Grease your hand with butter or ghee and roll into desired shapes and garnish.


This recipe goes to Jagruthi's  and Niveditha wonderful event


And Akila's wonderful event CID 2010 event.I would love to dedicate this recipe to the "Prince of Patriots"- Subhas Chandra Bose.

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. 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.

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…
