Til Ladoo(Sesame Seeds ladoo)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
As I said in earlier post, many recipes are common in whole India. Ladoo is one more recipe which is prepared everywhere. This til ladoo is the must food to make during Nagapanchami in North Karnataka. 
Gujarat menu also has til ladoo in sweet section so here is my recipe for the same.


Til or Sesame seeds - 500 gm
Roast the sesame seeds on a low heat. Allow it cool and keep aside.


To make jaggery syrup, we need
Jaggery - same as Til(Measure  in a cup, and take the same amount of jaggery)
Salt  - a pinch
Water -1/4 cup or less
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Click Here to make the Jaggery syrup. But boil the syrup for few more minutes to make the syrup more thick.

Other ingredients:
Dalia powder - 1/4 cup
Dry coconut - 1/4 cup, grated
Nutmeg and cardamom powder 1 tsp
Take the sesame seeds  in a big and wide plate. 
Add  dry coconut, Nut Meg  powder and dalia powder to it. Mix it well and keep it ready.


Now you should be quick:
Put this syrup to the Sesame seeds plate. Spread it slowly so that the the sesame seeds gets the syrup evenly. 
Now take a small quantity and make balls by mildly pressing with both the palms to give proper ball shape.
This will make around 30 ladoos.
Keep it to cool for sometime. Store it in a jar or box.

Kansar(Remake)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Being a South Indian, trying new recipes from other part of India is always a fun. But I have always seen that most of the recipes are very similar with a little alteration and a different name. 
The sweet I am posting today also comes in the same category. We South Indians( mainly North Karnataka) people make this sweet often for the puja or on new moon day. I have already posted the recipe with the name Broken wheat(or thick rava) and jaggery Halwa.
But again thought of making it the Gujarati way and post it here.
After browsing many sites, I have taken the recipe from here which is easy to make.
Please click the link for the recipe.
A very quick, easy and tasty and healthy (too) sweet for everyone. This is very good for kids.
Sending this to two events:

Microwave 2 minute wonder cake with oats and nuts

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I am really sorry for not posting since many days. I got stuck with many things and was not in position to write for a blog.
Coming to the recipe,
This 2 minute wonder cake is a real wonder cake which is ready in exactly 2 minutes(plus 5 minutes for ingredients) and perfect for the evening snack for kids with a glass of milk. 


First time I tried this Microwave Chocolate Cake and it was just superb.
This time (promoted from Beginner to middle lever baker!!!) I thought of adding something else to this and try.
Here is the recipe

Ingredients:
APF OR MAIDA- 1 tbsp
 Wheat flour - 2 tbsp
Oats - - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 4 tbsp
Unsweetened Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
Egg - 1
Milk - 3 tbsp
Oil - 3 tbsp 
Baking Powder - 1 pinch
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Chopped nuts - 1 tbsp(I used almonds and walnuts)
Choco chips- 1 tbsp
Method:

Sieve the APF, Cocoa powder and baking powder in a plate. 
Mix egg, milk, oil, Essence and sugar in a bowl. 
Add the sieved flour and mix well till everything gets mixed and you will get one flow batter.
Add the nuts. 

It takes 2 to 3 minutes.

(Mix well with egg beater or with a fork.(don't use blender))
Grease a mug or any Microwave safe bowl and dust it with APF. Pour the batter into it.
I used the rectangle box.
Microwave on full(I have 800 power) for ONE minute.
Take it out and add the chopped chips without touching or disturbing the cake.
Microwave exactly for ONE MORE MINUTE.
Let it stand in the M/W for few minutes
your yummy, healthy cake is ready to serve.
