Rava Khoya Ladoo


Rava Khoya Ladoo

A quick and delicious ladoo any festive occasion or to satisfy your sweet craving. It is rich and extremely flavorful with roasted semolina/rava and khoya. I have earlier posted a rava ladoo,it is an instant recipe. Rava ladoo is a family favorite and I make it often.So this time tweaked a little by adding some khoya  and  it turned out very delicious. Another variation to khoya ladoos is adding roasted and powdered sesame seeds or adding coconut instead rava/semolina.

Ingredients
Rava/Semolina- 1 cup
Khoya- 1 cup
Sugar- 3/4cup
( according to the sweetness you prefer)
Ghee- 3 tsp
Cardamon - 4-5
Milk- 1/3 cup
Raisins- a few
Cashew nuts- a few


Heat 2 tsp of ghee in a pan and slightly roast chopped cashew nuts and raisins and keep aside.
In the same pan roast rava/semolina till it slightly changes color to slight golden allow this to cool.
Into the same pan mix ghee,milk and khoya and cook in medium flame,stir continuously till the khoya gets cooked and changes color and you get a nice aroma. This will take about four to five minutes.Add rava, sugar, cardamon powder, roasted cashew nuts and raisins and mix well and the sugar to slightly melt.Switch off the flame and allow this to cool a little, or till you are able to handle it and make small golf sized balls. Enjoy!

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy!

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…

Thai Fried Bananas

Thai Fried Bananas
Thai fried bananas is very popular in restaurants and also a yummy street food. When I first read the recipe it sounded interesting and I wanted to replicate this popular street food at home.It is made with Thai bananas and the batter is made with coconut milk and rice flour. The first time I saw these bananas fitters, I thought that it was just like the Kerala pazham pori/ plantain fitters. It looks somewhat similar,but this had a unique taste and favor.It has enticing flavor and taste of sweet banana, coconut milk and fresh grated coconut. The rice flour makes it super crispy.  This is a sure winner if you have sudden guests at home. 

You can find Thai banana at any South Asian market. If you cannot find them use any banana with a firm texture to make these fitters. Ripe plantains can also be used. It is a sweet dessert and can be served on its own,but to make it extra special serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.
