Choc pops (homemade)


I got this idea after seeing cake pops at Bakerella and moreover Cheriyan's birthday is coming up and I wanted to make something creative and kid friendly for his birthday party. So I wondered why can't I make choc pops with my very own homemade chocolates....and it is easy too I mean no baking and chocolates can be made in 15 min and so the problem was the lollipop sticks.....and then I saw Swapna's cake pops .....the lollipop sticks problem was solved by bamboo skewers. I made the chocolate and spread a little on a greased plate to cut out and wrap in colorful foils.
The rest I rolled into balls greasing my hand with butter.
I inserted the bamboo skewers while still warm and left it to cool.
.
And brushed them with butter and rolled them in sprinkles.
Even wrapped some of them in colorful foils.....to give a colorful look for my son's birthday party.
This one is really easy to make .....just make the homemade chocolate and roll them...put in the sticks...brush with butter...roll them in sprinkles.....wow! that is pretty fast ....no baking...no crumbling cakes etc etc. Lovely choc pops are ready to treat ur kids and spice up their party.


No baking.....just make chocolates and roll them up

Ingredients:
One measure of homemade chocolates.
Little butter to grease hands and brush the choc pops.
Lots of sprinkles.
Bamboo skewers.
Colorful aluminum foils.
Method:
Make homemade chocolates and roll them and stick them with skewers.
Kids are going to love this....so try it mummies.

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.

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

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, …
