Chocolate Caramel Fudge


Chocolate Caramel Fudge

 This is perfect holiday treat and is so easy to make.Wrap them in candy wrappers and it is a perfect holiday gift which you can share with loved ones and friends.So try this delicious chocolaty caramel goodness this Christmas. I have added some chopped nuts to give a little crunch.

Ingredients
Condensed milk- 1 tin ( 13.4 oz.)
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Mini marshmallows-  1 1/2 cup
Butter- 3 Tbs
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Dark chocolate- 11 oz.( 311 grams)
Chopped nuts of your choice- 1/4 cup
Salt- a pinch

For the caramel
Condensed milk- 3/4 cup
Brown sugar- 1/2 cup
Butter- 2 tbs
Light corn syrup- 1 tbs
Heavy cream - 4 tbs
White chocolate- 100 grams


This recipe can be made in two stage, first the chocolate and then pour the caramel layer on top or make it together as the recipe below
For the chocolate fudge: Take a heavy bottom pan or sauce pan and add the butter, sugar,salt and condensed milk.Put it in low medium heat,stir occasionally till it comes to a boil. This will take about 5-6 minutes.
Continue till there is rapid boil stage and simmer for another 5-6 minutes stirring in between .If you have a candy thermometer the temperature should reach  230 degree or the soft ball stage. To check whether it reached the soft ball stage drop half a spoon of the mixture into cold water. After a few seconds you will be able to take it out from the water and press into a soft ball.
Switch off the heat and add 1 tsp vanilla, dark chocolate or semi sweet and 1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows. Continuously whisk till all the chocolate and marshmallows gets incorporated and you have a smooth texture and finally add nut. Continue whisking till the mixture starts thickening.

For the soft caramel: While the chocolate fudge is simmering  take another heavy bottom pan and add condensed milk,brown sugar,butter, light corn syrup and cream put it a low medium flame till the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.
Mix every thing together cover and simmer for two minutes or till you see condensation on top of the lid. This will help wash down sugar crystals on the sides of the pan. Remove the lid and continue to simmer  in low heat for another 8 minute. Keep whisking in between. Switch off the flame and add white chocolate and continue stirring till it thickens.
Prepare an eight inch square pan. Line it with aluminum foil or with wax paper. Pour half of the chocolate fudge mixture.Pour the caramel mixture on top. You can use a fork and gently swirl the caramel and chocolate mixture and then pour over the rest of the chocolate mixture. Using and off set spatula spread the mixture and make it even. Allow this to set for about two hours and then chill it in fridge to be able to set completely.Once it is firm to touch  cut into pieces and serve.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy!

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.

Shrimp Biryani

Shrimp Biryani has a wonderful taste and flavor which makes it stand apart as one of the most popular and favorite among Biryani lovers. There are different ways to make an authentic shrimp Biryani. This is not an authentic one. It is inspired by the Goa shrimp Biryani which makes use of coconut milk and tomatoes instead of yogurt. When i read about this i had an instinct to make it as I wished to understand why Goa food is unique is in its flavor and taste. This recipe actually called for the traditional method of making it with raw shrimp and uncooked rice cooked in coconut milk. But I did not try that fearing that I will end up with a pulao. Luckily my method proved successful and the Biryani came out well and there is a wonderful aroma now in my kitchen.

Ingredients
For Rice
Basmati Rice- 1 1/2 cups
Water- 3 cups
Cardamon-2
Cinnamon- 1 stick

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.
