What's there in shape??

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Aren't we all magicians in the kitchen? I always feel like that. We prepare food in minutes! We create new dishes. We do some magic to prepare tasty food with the ingredients we have in the kitchen shelf. We are always ready for unexpected guests.
Am I going out of the track? Sometimes  I love to go!
I love to be in the kitchen and create some magic, which many times I fail because I am not so creative and do not have patience. 
Many times I prepare the same food with different methods or recipes. 
And same way, I love these rolls. 
Here I feel exactly  like I am a magician. Give me any shape from the dough, I roll the chapatis into exact round shape(with little care) or the exact triangle shape! I am making these since child hood. 

Try these folds to make chapatis. I feel, each method, the chapati tastes different.

Keep Smiling,

Here I am reposting the recipes.

Carrot and Dates Halwa.

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
This is my first post in this year 2011.Two nights party and hectic schedule kept me away from blogging. Today I am here with a sweet to start my year so that, the whole year I will keep blogging on sweet things. I am following my fellow bloggers who started the year with halwa.  I am here with carrot and dates halwa which I prepared for dinner tonight. It was delicious. 
My DH got 2 boxes of mini(90g) condensed milk tins and kept for me as I love to use it in my desserts instead of sugar. 
I will be waiting for the chance to use these mini tins which I love to eat just like that if I do not have time to make sweet but desire to have a bite.

Here are the ingredients:
Carrot - 2 big, cleaned, grated
Condensed milk - 1 tin(90g)
Dates - 6(Soaked in 1/4 cup warm milk for 15 to 20 min)
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Sliced or grated almonds - 1 tbsp
Ghee - 1 tsp

  • Take 2 tbsp of grated carrot and add it to the dates. 
  • Grind this into paste.
  • Transfer this into a M/W safe bowl.
  • Add the remaining carrot. Mix well and cook on HIGH for 3 minutes to remove the raw smell of the carrot.
  • Take the bowl out, add the condensed milk and cardamom powder. Cook on HIGH for 3 more minutes.
  • Remove, add the sliced or grated almonds and ghee. Mix well and cook on HIGH till the mixture becomes thick(as it looks in the photo). It may take 3 to 5 minutes as per the M/W settings.
  • Serve it hot with cold ice cream ball or refrigerate it before serving to enjoy the chilled halwa.
