Take paneer and either mash it using your palm or in mixer. In a pan add this paneer mix along with milk maid. Now i took 1/4 cup milk maid from the paneer of 1 litre milk. Cook on slow flame till it all comes together as a mass, let it cool down and mash again for few mins, add 1/2 tsp cardamom powder if you want and make sandesh. If you are the lucky ones who has moulds then use it otherwise just making laddoo or peda shape.

Basant Panchami. Preparing for the arrival of Spring. Getting ready for Holi, the festival of colors, my very favorite 🙋🏻‍♀️ Yellow is a significant color on this day as we all know. We wear yellow, and make something delicious of the same color as well 😊💛Cooking something delish but not sweet tomorrow 🥰 My second round of Ladoos/ Pinnis this season. And the first time I added ‘gond’ or edible gum. Substituted sugar and added jaggery powder this time around and it worked so very well. This day also marks mom dad’s wedding anniversary as per the Hindu calendar and so it becomes even more special each year. Hope you all are having a good week so far.

View this post on Instagram

Khapse // Celebration Biscuits. . Deep-fried biscuits take the form of auspicious symbols and festive snacks during Losar—the Tibetan Buddhists New Year festival that lasts 15 days. . Temples display intricate sculptures made from yak butter, which is also used to fuel lamps. At home, celebratory altars include dried fruit, candies, and mounds of hand-formed, deep-fried biscuits called khapse—translated as mouth-eat. Best served with a tall, frosty glass of mouth-drink while you lean back in your arse-sit. . Massive quantities of khapse are prepared as offerings and festive gifts. Each person molds a symbolic, scorpion-shaped cookie first. This initial offering is not made for snacking, but to ward off bad luck, including kitchen mishaps. If only I had the dexterity to make this BEFORE I attempted to make this... Families would then hang these in their kitchen for the duration of Losar. . Then you’ve got the donkey’s ear (bhungue amcho), the lotus flower (mukdung), the crispy circles (bulug) and a smaller variety made specifically for snacking (kaptog) which is what you see in the above picture. .

It can be prepared in sugar or jaggery syrup and tastes yum both ways. Today I made it in sugar syrup and it got over as soon as it was ready! 🙈🙈 The texture was exactly what I was looking for - slight crunch in the outside and super-moist, syrup-drenched, soft core! 😛😛 Recipe soon in stories and highlight, till then tell me how it looks! 😄😄 -नोनी ♥️ . . #chhattisgarh, #chhattisgarhfood, #cgfood, #dehraori, #dehrori, #indiansweetdish, #easycooking, #easycooking, #homecooking, #lockdownrecipes, #lockdowndays, #21daysoflockdown, #quarrantinecooking, #quarantinerecipes, #noneecooks

Lavang lata/ lavang latika The traditional Odia dish. Stuffed and deep fried pastry is soaked in sugar syrup and is served as a sweet. Prepared this for the first time and this came out to be so good. My husband liked it very much ❤️. The traditional Odia recipe has coconut stuffing. The latikas are crisp on outside and soft on inside. There are a few things to be kept in mind before preparing them. They have to be fried in medium heat as they will brown faster on the outside and will not cook from inside. They have to be dipped in sugar syrup for a min or two more than that it will make them soft. . . . . . #lavanglatika #lavanglata #indiansweets #desserts #cloves #sweetporn #foodporndetroit #indiandesserts #sugarsyrup #coconut #stuffing #homemadesweets #nishucooks #khanapinajina #foodcrawlersinc #foodfood #dessertpic #whitebackground #foodphotograph #deepfrieddesserts

49. Doodh Pak

Originated in Gujarat, Doodhpak is a rice pudding made from milk, rice, saffron and nuts. It often savoured with pooris at lunch time.

View this post on Instagram

Doodh Pak, new recipe on my youtube. Link in my bio. I grew up eating doodh pak during ‘Sradh’ days, a specific period in the Indian calendar. My grandmother always says “apda pitru awe khawa apda ghare” (meaning our ancestors come to eat at our house). So, my mummy used to put something every day for the crows and doodh pak was an important part of Sradh. Doodh Pak is less creamy than kheer but it has rice and nuts just like kheer. I would definitely recommend you to try this recipe during the days of Sradh or even later too as a nice dessert. Did you grow up eating this in Sradh days too? Also, I am submitting this entry for #gaanesekhaanetak. The challenge hosted by @viniscookbook @bhukaadd @_krithika @tanyas.bowlsandbrushes And sponsored by @blablafoodz @tpbspicesjodhpur . The song is “cheeni kum he” from the movie Cheeni Kum. lyrics are cheeni kum hai cheenu kum hai, thodi thodi... I used milk, sugar(chheni), nuts, and saffron in this recipe. #indiandessert #dessert #sweettooth #gaanesekhaanetak #indiancluture #desifood #desiinfluencer #easyandhealthy #dudhpak #doodhpak #doodh #poori #pori #festivalfood #saffronrice #ricerecipes #milkrecipes #creamyrecipe #cheeni #cheenikam #browngirlmag #dessertoftheday #suckerfordesserts #indiansweets #thefoodmistress #dessertsofinstagram #dessertporn #dessertoftheday #foodtalkindia #feedfeed

In Bengal, Krishnanagar in Nadia district is home to the extremely popular Shor Bhaja. So much so that it has recently received the prestigious GI tag. However, in Kolkata and its surrounding areas including the townships by the Hooghly river such as Bandel, Serampore and Chandannagar, we get another version of Shor Bhaja which is, due to lack of artisanal finesse, assumes a completely different form, texture and taste. Recently I was having a full fledged conversation with @deyspecial on this and given her research background on the sweets of Bengal and an in-depth field study in Krishnanagar, I was delighted to hear about the elaborate and labour intensive process of creating the Shor of the Shor Bhaja. The recipe demands an elaborate method of taking out the shor or malai from milk and then turning it into a thin yet firm as well as crisp film of dessicated milk fat. That when deep-fried with a layer of kheer sandwiched between two or more sheets of the Shor and subsequently steeped in sugar syrup produces the unparalleled Bengali mishti Shor Bhaja. . However, in Kolkata and other places most mishti karigars or makers go for a lazy and quicker version of the same, which is nevertheless delicious and yum in its own right. The pictures that you see here are those of the "lazy" versions of Shor Bhaja available mostly outside Krishnanagar. These one's in particular are from my hometown Chandannagar. That fact is — given the ingredients like malai and kheer and sugar syrup, any which way you make a Shor Bhaja out of them, chances are you will end up with something superbly delicious. Now just imagine what it would taste like if you sample some original ones from Krishnanagar itself! . . . . . #mishti #bengalimishti #shorbhaja #sorbhaja #krishnanagar #sweetsofbengal #mishtisofbengal #bengalidesserts #artisanalmishti #desidesserts #indianmithai #indiansweets #sweetsofindia #pickletopilaf #chandannagar #delicious #traditional #culinaryheritage #getbengal #absolutebangaliyana #beautifulbengal #treasuresofbengal #indianfood #regionalfood #localfood #backtoroots #craftsmanship
