Homemade Frappuccino....step by step (my version).


Homemade copycat starbucks frappuccino, my version.....pure goodness of milk, coffee, and cream....perfect summer chill.

I know, I should have posted this long before...because I make frappuccino so often, it just din't cross my mind that I did not share it with you....and so yesterday, while I was making for my kids, Nidhi reminded me that I still haven't posted this...and thus, I took this picture on the spur of the moment.....unfortunately I forgot to take step by step pictures.....and when I mentioned that, you should have seen the "naughty grin" on my children's face....so again, I made for them today and took the step by step pictures for you....and both my kids were like wow! we are so lucky to have a food blogger mom :)

Back to this recipe, I had starbucks frappuccino sometime back and since then, I have been making my version of this amazing coffee cooler....its no secret that I am a die-hard coffee lover, and so are my hubby and kids....well that make us a coffee loving family. Okay back to the recipe again, cool whip/whole cream is something which is very difficult to get in this part of the world....so I make with ice cream on top drizzled with chocolate syrup....lots and lots of syrup...but if you can get cool whip in your part of the world...then top it with it....or maybe even sweetened whipped cream...I love to cook and substitute with whatever is available in the pantry refrigerator.

The Starbucks frapps have sweetened whipped cream on top with chocolate syrup/caramel syrup and chocolate chips, but I have made my variation without compromising the taste and not creating a hole in your pocket (its costs somewhere around 125 INR). I used frozen pasteurized milk, instant coffee powder, ice cream, and chocolate syrup.

So lets get frappy and save money too  :)

Author: Nisa Homey.
Serves: 3.
Tip: If you are a coffee person, I am sure you will have some left over black coffee, do not pour it down the drain, just fill them in an ice cube tray and freeze and then pop them in when you are making frapps or cold coffee...

Ingredients:
Pasteurized milk: 1/2 litre pack, frozen, I keep one or two packets in the freezer, just in case :)
Sugar: 1/4 cup, or decrease 1 tbsp depending on your taste.
Instant coffee powder: 2 tsp.
Vanilla ice cream: 1 big scoop or whipped cream or cool whip.
Chocolate syrup: 2 tbsp or as much as your kids like.
Chocolate chips: 1 tsp to sprinkle over (optional).
Caramel sauce: 1 tsp to drizzle over (optional).

Method:
Lightly soften the frozen pasteurized milk with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin.


Cut open the packet and empty it into a blender.


Add two tsp of instant coffee powder (like starbucks, nescafe, or bru).


Add in 1/4 cup of sugar.


Blend for a minute. If you would love more coffee flavor you can increase half a tsp, but make sure to adjust the sugar.


Pour into a tall glass, top with a generous scoop of ice cream and drizzle chocolate syrup over it.

My version of frappuccino....so easy!

Happy mothers day to all the lovely moms out there and to dear amma, make this frappuccino and enjoy Mothers Day!!

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.
