Their are many delightful combinations in cooking and food which I love. I just enjoy each and every bite of it and the combo just melts in mouth and one such combination is vanilla ice cream with gulab jamun. When I was a teen, dad often take us to Rotary meeting it would be a large get together.Lots of friends,fun and yummy yummy food, the most common dessert served that time was gulab jamun or carrot halwa with ice cream. I would just relish eating them any time of the day and would want for more and more. And to say RK is just me like when tasting desserts and he loves gulab jamun a lot, so when my MIL visited here last month she made a batch of gulab jamun,it was half over and I saved the rest half for this yummiest popsicles and ice cream. Everyone in my house loved it to the core and was over the same day,we went for 2 serving. So don't hesitate to give a try and u will all love it. You can use store bought gulab jamun also.

I had about 1/2 cup of leftover coconut cream in my fridge after making a yummy dessert. Was planning to finish it off soon and was searching to make some refreshing milkshake out of it.. I saw many recipes but one recipe,coconut tres leches milkshake caught my eye, I had all the ingredients for the milkshake, but the recipe suggested to serve the milkshake with few pieces of toasted pound cake. At first thought will skip that part, but was keen in knowing about and making of pound cake. So browsed for the recipe and found that it's all buttery yummy cake and decided to bake. Saw many recipes, but I'm a big fan of joy of baking recipes, I have tried many of her recipes and it was always a hit,dint have a second thought to try out and while baking,my house was full buttery buttery flavour and little one smelled and came knocking at the kitchen door with a big smile, she had a good enough slice and enjoyed every bite of it. The cake batter process is bit different form the normal one so follow each step to have a soft and crumble cake.

This curry can be made is less time if all ingredients on hand,and the curry goes a tasty accompaniments with biryani or chappathi. So try out and let know, how you liked it.

A delicate delightful dessert, which can be made in no time... The ingredients used are so common, and sure we all will be using it regularly. Bread Pudding is an old fashioned dessert, and was also know as "poor man dessert" as it was made with stale moistened bread with some sugar and spices...now it's all updated and this dessert is made with full creamy richness and toppings of nuts or fruits. Many varieties of bread can be used and I have made it with a French loaf... Give it a try and U will totally love it... Will soon post an egg-less version.

Appam is a flavourful breakfast,best served with some spicy curry or sweetened coconut milk.This is our families favorite breakfast combination,right from kid to elder,loves this combo...So i make appams on weekends. It's,bit time consuming process and the key for Getting softer appam is,the batter should be fermented well...The traditional way of making appam is by adding "toddy" it's not easily available.So,it's been substituted with Yeast.. But I usually prefer making appam without yeast..I have,another appam recipe without adding coconut,will share that recipe in future.. Still then,try this appam recipe and I'm sure you will love it..
