No Bake Chocolate Balls (eggless)....step by step.



Chocolate balls....biscuit balls.....coconut balls....cocoa balls....call them whatever you want... these are so yummy....so melt-in-the-kind-of  goodness.

No baking....no cooking.....and eggless....they are ready in just about 10 minutes....this sure will bring extra hugs from your kids....so brace yourselves for that :)

Just powder the biscuits and sugar....add in the condensed milk.....cocoa powder.....mix and roll them...so easy....

About 8-10 years ago, while living in Coorg our neighbor, Prabha aunty's lovely daughter Deepika used to make this and give it to my daughter....kids  used to love them....I had asked her for the recipe....I might have stored it in my memory thinking that ..."its easy to remember no need to write it down"...anyways, after changing houses and states in between the recipe was long forgotten until recently my daughter remembered it "Amma do you remember those yummy chocolate balls Deepika chechy (an endearment in malayalam) used to make, I feel like having that NOW"....and I  was just 'oh, but I dont remember how she used to make it". Thanks to FB I was able to leave a message and got the recipe.

Psst! Dieters forgive me.....honestly I just had two, no three, four. come on, I was just checking or rather tasting for you guys....and still the label is I made for my kids....so make them for your kids and indulge in them secretly :)


Ingredients:
Marie Biscuits: 255 gms.(lightly crumble it)
Sugar: 1/4 cup. (if you are on the sweeter side you can add a bit more)
Cocoa powder: 3 tbsp.
Condensed milk: 1 tin.
Vanilla essence: 1 tsp.
Desiccated coconut: 1/2 cup.
Butter, melted: 1 tbsp (to grease hands).

Method:
An Update; 08/10/12

My friend Siona mentioned on FB that when she tried it, she could not get the choc balls together..they were sort of loose or flat...so I made again and checked it....initially I mentioned 200 gms.....but I found that 255 gm are just right for the dough to hold together and also if you leave the dough for 10 min, it hardens a bit...so grease your hands with butter or ghee while rolling into balls....updating the picture of the biscuit I used... I feel miserable when I get a feedback that my recipe dint work for someone and try my best to work on getting it right. So, I made it again (thankfully I had a tin of condensed milk in the pantry). I hope this helps. Again if the final dough becomes loose add a bit more of powdered biscuits.

I used marie light double pack.

And the weight is

In a grinder, grind the crumbled biscuits and sugar to very fine powder. Then add in the cocoa powder.


And grind again.

Put the powdered mix into a bowl and pour in the condensed milk.

Mix well with your hand and knead it into a soft ball.

Put desiccated coconut in a shallow plate. Grease your hands with butter and simply pinch lemon sized balls from the dough and roll in the desiccated coconut.

Store them in air tight container....this should keep for a week IF the kids permit!!

Enjoy!!

You can also roll them in sprinkles or in chocolate strands...
And Deepika thank you!!

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…

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, …

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.
