Homemade chocolates


Hi, I am relatively new to this blogging world. Chocolate is everyones passion as well as mine. Kids love it, for them if their mother can make yummy chocolates, they will brand their mothers as the best cook in the world!!! I went to a cooking class soon after my marriage and I got a chocolate recipe, but how much ever I tried I never got it right. Finally after many attempts I finally got it right with this recipe. So, for a long time I have been thinking why not share it with others. I have been handing out this one to my friends and relatives and whoever tastes this will always ring up and ask me how to make it.

The best part is it is very easy to make. No stirring for long. I found out that if it is made in the night and kept to set overnight it sets just perfect. I guarantee that kids are going to love this yummy chocolates. After writing out this recipe I made one set and even took some photographs of it which I will post shortly after. Please bear with me for the short comings as I am new to blogging. I hope to give you more and more wonderful recipes which is easy to make.

Homemade chocolates:
Everyday milk powder 200gm-1 packet.(only use everyday)
Sugar-1 cup (200 ml cup)
water-1/2 cup.
Cadbury's cocoa powder-1/4 cup.
Butter-1/4 cup (can add ghee instead also)
Vanilla essence-1 or 2 drops.
Crushed cashew nuts-little.(optional)
Colored sweet balls or silver balls for decoration.(optional)

Method:
Put sugar and water in a deep bottom saucepan and bring to boil, check with your fingers to see if it has come to 1 string consistency. Turn off heat add butter and mix well. Then add cocoa powder and milk powder and mix well, add vanilla essence, cashews. Pour into a greased tray and sprinkle colored balls on it and cut into squares when cooled.
This is the most easiest of chocolates and I am sure kids will love it.
One string consistency: Boil sugar and water and after about 2 to 3 minutes, dip a spoon into it and check between your finger tips to see if it is sticking and when you pull your fingers apart a string like line will be seen.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …
