stuffed zucchini capers and burnt coconut macarons!

6 Dec

these 2 lipsmacking dishes i shall now teach u to make. if u are scared reading the names of the dishes. wrong emotion! as sophisticated as it may sound, even a mutant human can make no mistake creating them!:)

also i attempted pineapple up-side down cake a month ago that took so much more effort and turned out to be un palatable beyond belief. cardinal sin to put even a tinie winie bit in the mooh. even a dying child in west africa would choose death over the cake. bad eg. sorry. peace. but i am putting the pic for posterity. recognise the effort albeit from a distance:)

apne pe ehsaan karen. shakal pe mat jaaye!

‘STUFFED ZUCCHINI CAPERS’

A GOOD LOOKING MOUTHFUL STARTER (CAN SERVE TWO HUNGRY LOVERS to shut their mouth up thus putting a stop to jealousificating the rest of the population in the restaurant)

Ingredients: One medium sized zucchini (if u have lost me already, then pls move onto another post:)), a spoonful of dry herbs namely thyme/rosemary/oregano, abundant olive oil, philadelphia cheese (yummmm), pepper, salt, and yeah toothpick.

Procedure: Using skill of a carpenter or a stylish slicer, slice thin leaves along the length of the zucchini. u shud get around 6-8 slices.in a microwaveable tray, arrange these and throw in copious potion of olive oil. sprinkle the aforementioned herbs and salt for flavour. let it bake/grill for some 10min. in the mean while, mix a small katori full of philadelphia cheese with pepper and salt ( i also threw in 2 pieces of finely chopped sun dried tomatoes for the extra zing:)). so now u hv a thick paste filling ready. once the zucchini is ready, roll it using tender fingers and in the central hollow, stuff a lil of the cheese paste. poke the toothpick to hold the shape together. and the mouth watering ultra polished starter is all ready for consumption!

‘BURNT COCONUT MACARONS’

WORLD’S MOST EASIEST, FASTEST, TASTIEST DESSERT: mix milk maid in dry coconut powder such that it just about hold the mixture together. dont overdo it pls. and make small random shapes and bake it for 10min! Thats it!! Means it beats jelly or custard also!

VVIMP: how to shop for bhindis- for this particular recipe its imp to buy tiny thin not-very-hard bhindis. so pls be patient and scan some sabji mandi’s before u make ur pick.

Ingredients: roasted ground nut powdered coarsely, sambar powder if ur a dravidian and garam masala if ur an aryan (and they say i am racist!), hing/asephoetida, dhaniya jeera powder, chilli powder, oil in surplus, those tiny thin not-so-hard bhindis ofcourse.

Wat next?: cut head n tail of the bhindis. slit them 1mm short of being halved. (man, does this sentence sound cruel o watt!hehaha)
mix the following powders in the mentioned proportion; 3 sambar powder+ 3 groundnut powder+ 1/2 hing+ 1/2 salt+ 1/2 chilli powder+ 1 dhaniya jeera powder
stuff the stuff;) in the bhindis. heat oil in a pan, and fry the bhindis 10 at a time for 2 min. the bhindis taste best with hot buttered phulkas. nevertheless, they provide for palatial esctasy even when had just like that!!

i’ll tell u what; the ones i made were so damn tasty tat we were busy devouring it and none of us cared to click pictures! so i invite u to make it and send me urs pics instead!;)

easy-to-make choc fudge-the ultimate birrday gift

25 Nov

Easiest ever recipe and i bet my last buck ( cos i hv none) tat its the yummiest edible thing ever!

U need just 4 ingredients and thats the best part!chocolate-fudge-lores

1. a packet of icing sugar

2. a packet of coco power

3. a dabba of milk maid

4. 1/2 kg white butter (non salted)

Now, lets get down to actually making it; it takes about 15 min.

Heat the pan, butter goes in first. melts. add icing sugar while stirring constantly. (clockwise pls. granma says it has some cosmic relevance). add coco powder next. see i dont like obscenely sweet desserts so i use more coco and less icing sugar. u suit ur palate. so thats sorted. by now its a thick paste. fire on sim. finally add milk maid. the gas has to be on until the fudge bubbles along the sides of the pan. pls continue stirring till u get a tennis elbow. 2min after the bubbles come, shut the gas. voila! the fudge is ready!! pour it into a bowl. let it cool for 15 min. garnish with nuts/grate a cadbury bar.

The whole process from procuring the ingredients to setting the fudge takes lesser time than driving down to lonavala (from mumbai ofcourse). besides, this choc. fudge is tastier. especially if ur a meditator!
