Ras Malai Cake

October 10 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Ras Malai Cake (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Ras Malai Cake Ras Malai Cake is a twist on a very popular Bengali dessert "Ras Malai". Ras Malai is made with homemade cheese known as paneer or chana. It consists of soft paneer balls immersed in chilled creamy milk. Ras Malai has been always my favorite dessert for as long as I can remember. Back when I came to the U.S. many years ago, Indian cooking was a challenge as there were very few Indian ingredients available. Indian groceries weren't as plentiful back then. To top that off, I was also a new cook. I remember my friends and I would always experiment with different recipes for Indian food using whatever ingredients we could find. We knew we had to make do with what we had by being creative and learning to cook using the ingredients were available. One thing we discovered is using ricotta cheese as a substitute for paneer as it was the closest in consistency to paneer. We started using ricotta cheese to make many milk-based Indian desserts. It was then that I learned how to make Ras Malai. While it certainly was not the same as the "real thing", it was super simple to make and very tasty! Most importantly, I got to enjoy a little taste of home with my favorite Indian dessert! I have done one more recipe using Ricotta cheese Microwave Milk Cake. Enjoy! This recipe will serve 6. Course Dessert Cuisine Indian Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 40 minutes Servings 6 people Ingredients15 oz Ricotta Cheese whole milk 2 Tbsp sugar 1/­­4 tsp cardamom powder Milk for Rasmalai2 cups whole milk 1 1/­­2 tbsp sugar 1/­­8 tsp crushed cardamom Garnishing1 tbsp sliced almonds 1 tbsp sliced Pistachios few strands of saffron InstructionsI am also using a 5×7 Pyrex pan for baking the cake, line the pan with parchment paper. Mix the ricotta, sugar, cardamom, and saffron together well. Transfer the ricotta cheese mixture into a round Pyrex bowl. It should be around 1/­­2? thickness. Bake it at 300 degrees F for 35 minutes. After 10 minutes cover the cake with aluminum foil, which will prevent the cake browning from the top. Let it cool off to room temperature. While baking the cake, prepared the milk. Boil the milk in a frying pan on medium heat until the milk reduces to about 1 cup (Make sure wet the frying pan before putting the milk to prevent milk not to burn). Stir the milk occasionally. Set aside. Take the ricotta cake out into the serving plate, pour the milk over and garnish with almonds and pistachios. Keep it in the fridge for at least one hour, serve chill.

My Thoughts for Air Fryer

October 7 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

After giving it much thought, I finally decided to get an air fryer. I checked out many of them and eventually decided to get the Air Fryer Convection Toaster Oven: it includes a toaster, oven, and air fryer all in one. Another reason I decided to buy this one is to save kitchen countertop space. I replaced the toaster oven with this air fryer. So far, I am enjoying it. As a toaster oven, it does a better job than any toaster or toaster oven I have used. I am very happy with the oven feature: it is big enough to bake a cake, small batches of cookies, and a medium size pizza. I dont do much baking, but I have started baking more because the air fryer is easy to use and needs less time to bake it preheats in 2-3 minutes easily. It is also easy to clean. When using it as an air fryer (the reason I purchased this new gadget), it so far has not produced very satisfactory results except in grilling vegetables, tofu, paneer, and roasting nuts. I also use this to dry roast poha (flat rice) and makhana (fox nuts) half the way and then finish roasting in a frying pan, which saves some time but more importantly because for both things you need constant stirring which becomes too much for my shoulder. I do make both items very often. I have tried making French fries, pakora, samosa, katchori, and salteen crackers. If you eat these items as soon as they come out from the air fryer, they taste just okay, in my opinion. Also, using the air fryer did not save any time and the items lost the flavor. One of my friends suggested she liked heating the frozen snacks like samosas, katchories. I decided to try this; I got frozen samosa and katchories from the grocery store, and yes they came out good when I heated them. The question is why I needed the Air Fryer for that since I could have done the same in the toaster oven or in a conventional oven.  I am looking for help and suggestions. If you have any vegetarian recipe you were happy with, I will try and do the recipe.  I will like you to share your suggestions. Thanks!

Two Minute Fruit and Cracker Dessert

July 21 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Two Minute Fruit and Cracker Dessert (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Print Two Minute Fruit and Cracker Dessert One evening while playing cards with my husband, Alex, and my sons mother-in-law, Alex suddenly asked for something sweet. I didnt have any dessert prepared and all we had in the house was ice cream and some chocolate. Alex has always been super innovative with his food combinations, and this recipe is just that, a product of desperation. At first, my kids and grand-kids made faces when they heard what it was made of, but with a little bit of tweaking, it has become a simple dessert that our entire family has been preparing during this quarantine. When I say it only takes two minutes, I truly mean it. And it is so easy to make, that even my youngest grandchild can put it together in no time. The graham cracker pairs well with the creaminess of the cream cheese while still giving a nice crunch. The fruit adds natural sweetness and the drizzle on top of either chocolate or caramel is the perfect cherry on top. Just bring out the ingredients and everyone can help themselves. Today I have a very special guest star my grandson Shaan who is helping me out with todays recipe. Behind the scenes, I also have my granddaughter, Rhea, helping to film the video. We will be making a Fruit and cracker dessert, that is kid friendly and simply delicious. For this recipe, there is no cooking involved, and the ingredient measurement I am providing only as a guide. Recipe will serve 2.

Now cover them with another graham cracker to make them into sandwich. Drizzle with chocolate ganache. And garnish with almonds, that gives a nice crunch and beautiful look. Fruit and Cracker Dessert has nice crunch when it is eaten while making after 5 minutes crackers start getting soft. NotesThis dessert can be made with any other fruits and toppings of your choice. I also love making these with bananas and kiwi, and I also like topping it off with caramel sauce. You can buy caramel sauce and chocolate ganache they are readily available. I generally keep homemade chocolate ganache and caramel on hand. They are easy to make and have a long shelf life. The post Two Minute Fruit and Cracker Dessert appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Spring Berry Salad with Lemon Verbena Vinaigrette

June 1 2020 Oh My Veggies 

This light salad recipe is made with fresh spring berries and a lemon verbena vinaigrette. It’s the perfect way to use lemon verbena from the garden! All I Want is Salad We got back from Georgia on Monday night and I’m now ready for my next vacation. I think after you travel, you’re supposed to feel well-rested and satisfied, but traveling only makes me want to travel more. I spent most of the car ride home Googling hotels in Hawaii and the cost of airfare to the Florida Keys. So I guess I haven’t had my fill of travel this summer. But I did leave Georgia with my fill of fabulous desserts, courtesy of my Aunt Darlene. (You’re watching her on The American Baking Competition, right?!) She made mini-cheesecakes and gorgeous stenciled cookies and brownies topped with gold leaf for my cousin’s wedding. Oh, and there was cake too, of course. And then the next day, we got to eat the rejects--more cookies, more brownies, and orange blossom macarons. So! Much! Food! Bingeing on sweets is always the best motivation for getting back on track with my diet. When we were leaving Savannah, I told Chris that all I wanted […]

Story Behind Recipes

September 23 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Story Behind Recipes Dont you think it is true? Most of us have some story behind our favorite dishes. Most of the dishes I make have a story behind them. This may sound silly but this is the fact. My grand kids will vouch for me saying our dadima is full of stories. We all have some dishes we have enjoyed and admired. It makes a difference where and with who we dined. The presentation can inspire you, and that becomes the story behind that dish. I remember my first lentil dal I made: I used at least double the salt yet still my dad enjoyed it. I rolled my first roti into world map shape and my mom smiled and complimented it saying that was a piece of art. I gave the same compliment to my granddaughter when she rolled her first roti at five years old. She loved the idea of a world map. When my boys were young, I would make them puries; when they saw the puries being puffed, their eyes opened wide and they had so many questions. This happened every time they saw the puries, for I never came up with a good answer to satisfy their curiosity. Bengali Rasgullas are my favorite dessert. They are made with homemade paneer: round paneer balls soaked in sugar syrup. This is a delicacy from the state of Bengal. I will say one can never go wrong with this dish. When I was first learning to cook Rasgullas, they would turn out hard, not the right shape, or break in pieces. I learned quickly how to fix this, making them into different desserts in whichever way the imperfect Rasgullas would allow. My friends would ask me for the recipe. I tried explaining, but no one believed me. I decided to serve them differently and each time they were a hit amongst my friends. The bottom line is to enjoy your creation! I think I take every incident in my life as a story. Life is easier and more beautiful that way for me. It puts a smile on my face. Many of my viewers will ask how to make a certain dish restaurant style, but I like and enjoy simple home-made food. I dont even try to make restaurant style, but it does not mean I dont get inspired when I see some dish that is eye-catching; I will always see how I can make such a dish in homemade style. Thats how I came up with the recipe for Taco Samosa: I saw it made in the restaurant and then I put my own twist to it. A recent recipe I have cooked is Gulab Jamun Cake. My daughter-in-law wanted me to make it and asked me to add my own twist. I googled for the recipe; I was not happy with any of them, so I decided to create my own. After a few attempts to do so, I was very happy with the results. Sorry! I am the last person who can follow the recipes. It is strange then that I want you to follow mine. I enjoy it when I read the comments where you have made your own changes to the recipe. When we go out for dinner, visit friends and family, go to restaurants or I see some magazine that has a beautiful looking dish that catches my eye, I want and will try to make it. I think cooking is an art; instead of colors, you play with ingredients. Painters are inspired by something before they paint. I see cooking in the same way.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

September 15 2020 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes Makes 6 six-inch pancakes The most pumpkiniest pancakes Autumn is so bittersweet in the midwest. The bitter part: knowing In a few weeks youll be underdressed in your denim jacket no matter how many flannels youve got on. How all the therapeutic lamps in the world cant replace the feeling of a walk on the beach. And this winter there will be no escape as the pandemic rages on. But the sweet part, at least in the midwest right now: the earthy autumn breeze that somehow feels like it’s the beginning of something, the way it forces you into the moment, and really, the moment is all weve got. Well, except for Ive ALSO got a 6-pack of canned pumpkin puree and a bulk amount of Penzeys Pumpkin Spice. So I am going to make this pumpkin moment count. Today, with pancakes. Recipes Notes ~ If you have an allergy ok, use a different milk (obviously) but I have to admit that soy milk works best for me in pancakes! ~ This recipe uses 1/­­2 of a can of pumpkin puree. I did this so that it’s easy to double by simply just using the full can! I will also post some recipes for using the other 1/­­2 of the can, so stay tuned. ~ I have so many “alternative” flours that I got at the start of the pandemic and now need to use. If you don’t have spelt flour, AP flour will be just fine. Probably even better, honestly. Ingredients 1 3/­­4 cup unsweetened soy milk, divided 2 tablespoons ground flax seed 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 3/­­4 cup canned pumpkin puree 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup 1 1/­­2 cups spelt flour 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/­­4 teaspoon baking soda 1/­­2 teaspoon salt Directions 1 – In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to vigorously mix 1/­­2 cup of milk with the flax seeds and apple cider vinegar for about a minute. It should be thick and viscous. Add the remaining milk, pumpkin puree, olive oil and maple syrup and whisk until smooth.  2 – Sift in the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until relatively smooth, some lumps are okay, be careful not to overmix. 3 – Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes. Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly spray the pan with cooking oil. Scoop scant 1/­­2 cups of batter into the pan, and then, you know, make pancakes.

Mangoes are in Season

July 16 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Mangoes are in SeasonSweet, juicy mangoes are in season and always a favorite in my family.  Mangoes are my all-time favorite fruit.  In fact, whenever we go grocery shopping, mangoes are almost always purchased! I always have a variety of mangoes on hand. There are many different types of mangoes and everyone has their favorite type. My childhood was filled with fond memories eating fresh mangoes. I think I have so many memories attached to eating mangoes that I enjoy them even more.    Mangoes, of course, are enjoyed as they come as fruit. They are especially refreshing on these hot summer days.  They can also be used to make a variety of salads, desserts, drinks and of course mango pickle. My older grandson is always ready to enjoy a delicious cold mango lassi. I also enjoy preparing “mango laungi (relish)” which is a quick spicy sweet and sour relish, and also my older granddaughter’s favorite!  I always make this relish when I think the mangoes are not as flavorful.  This relish is a perfect dish to make and it can be refrigerated for up to a week.  These are some suggestions for some of my favorite dishes using mangoes:  Mango Lassi Mango Cheesecake Mango Rice Mango Pickle Aam Ka Panna I have many other mango recipes on my website.

The Best Plant-Based Foods to Eat (and Avoid) Before Bed for a Better Sleep

June 1 2020 Meatless Monday 

The Best Plant-Based Foods to Eat (and Avoid) Before Bed for a Better SleepSometimes its just impossible to fall asleep; and, sure, it could be due to excitement or stress, but many restless nights might be a result of the food we had for dinner (or dessert). What we eat plays an important role in how we sleep, because fruits, vegetables, legumes, and even spices contain a complex array of nutrients that all have different effects on our bodies. And while some ingredients can help quell restless nights, others may have the opposite effect, keeping you wired and jittery for hours. So, the next time youre planning your weekly dinner menu, be sure to keep your sleep schedule in mind. Check out our list of plant-based foods to eat (and avoid) before bed for a better sleep. What to Eat:   Almonds A welcomed addition to a strawberry kale salad , trail mix, or Asian noodle bowl , almonds are packed with all the nutrients necessary for healthy eating. But almonds also contain certain minerals that make them useful sleep aids , specifically high amounts of magnesium, which has been found to reduce inflammation and levels of cortisol, a stress-hormone attributed to disrupting sleep.   Bananas Universally beloved for its convenience and mellow flavor, the banana is also a good source of tryptophan, an amino acid associated with sleep. Have breakfast for dinner with a plate of banana buckwheat pancakes or a bowl of banana maple oatmeal , and set yourself up for a sound snooze. Chamomile Tea Its well known, and well documented, that herbal teas can help you relax, but chamomile tea is particularly capable of improving your sleep . Chamomile contains apigenin, an antioxidant that binds to certain receptors in the brain that may promote sleepiness and reduce insomnia.   Kiwi Who wouldve thought this odd, little, green fruit could be the answer to your restless nights? Okay, maybe thats an overstatement, but research does show that kiwis contain high of serotonin, a brain chemical that helps regulate the sleep cycle. Kiwis can be tricky to eat, so we recommend throwing them into the blender for a late-night kiwi-basil smoothie .   Oatmeal Complex carbohydrates, like oats, have the power to induce drowsiness before sleep. Oats -- one of our favorite inexpensive Meatless Monday pantry staples -- contain melatonin, making them a potentially useful sleep aid if consumed before bed.   What to Avoid:   Beans The humble legume is packed with a bounty of nutritional benefits -- protein, fiber, minerals -- but beans may not be the best things to eat right before bed. Eating a bowl of chili or rice and beans before sleep, although delicious, is asking for a night of indigestion and gas pains.   Broccoli Broccoli is a great addition to any diet, but it shouldnt be consumed close to bed time. Fibrous foods, like broccoli, take the body longer to digest, which may keep you awake at night.   Candy An evening full of candy or other sugary treats will have you tossing and turning in bed. Candy is typically composed straight sugar, which can cause wild swings in blood-sugar levels. The initial sugar crash may help you fall asleep, but afterward youll be stuck wide awake.   Cured Meats Preserved meats contain high concentrations of the amino acid tyramine, which signals the brain to release norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter that readies the body for action. Levels of norepinephrine are lowest during sleep and highest during dangerous or stressful situations. Not an ideal combination for night time. Thankfully, there are plenty of plant-based swaps to satisfy your cravings for salty, fatty foods. Spicy Food Finishing off a spicy bowl of curry or cauliflower Buffalo wings will awaken your taste buds, but it will also keep you awake. Chile peppers can be good for you, but eating them before bedtime can lead to indigestion, heart burn, and elevated body temperature -- physical qualities that impair sleep.   Click here  for more Meatless Monday recipes.
