Creamy mango Pudding

This creamy mango pudding is a simple dessert that you can try during summer time. Its so simple to make and will not cost a lot at all too. This is a very popular dessert in Asia. When the mangoes are in season try this this recipe with fresh mangoes. You can use frozen or canned mangoes for this too.

If you are a vegetarian try making them with agar agar powder with out gelatin powder. Instead of milk or cream you can add coconut milk too. So it becomes vegan too.

Homemade Marshmallows

Homemade marshmallow is  the best when you compare with the shop bought ones. You can make fifty pieces from less than 5 dollars. Its so simple and easy to make too. Gelatin , sugar and the glucose syrup are the main ingredients for making marshmallows. Glucose syrup is called as corn syrup in countries.

Making  these gives much fun as well as self satisfaction. You can use marshmallows on hot chocolate, smores and also when camping. Kids will love to burn the marshmallows over the camp fire.

You can make them with egg whites too. But these are the best as I suggest.  Making candy is really simple when you have a candy thermometer. Its worth having one if you are someone who like to make candies or fudges.

When you coat the marshmallows make sure to coat them with half corn flour and half confectioners sugar, also called as icing sugar.I have missed that clip when I did the video. make sure to coat on the corn flour and icing sugar mix well before sifting the excess sugar out.

I did this recipe with lots of adjustment and with my previous experience. So this recipe is guaranteed 100% to get good quality marshmallows as the same as from shops.

The recipe for the Marshmallows are below………

These are some of the closer looks you can experience.

Deep Fried Spicy Mushrooms

I make these for a vegetarian friend who visited recently. Its so easy to make and tastes really creamy and spicy.  I added one egg in to the batter but if you are a vegetarian you can omit the egg totally.

When you want to do this make sure to cut across or slice . That way the flavours goes through the mushrooms and makes it so tasty. I used button mushrooms for the recipe but any other mushroom will do the same. I like to use the oyster mushrooms too. You don’t need to cut the oyster mushrooms as it can absorb all the flavours well. Try this recipe with different types of mushrooms.

I used 500 g  for 8 people. You can serve this as a side dish or even as a finger food too.

The recipe for this is below the pictures.

This is 500 g mushrooms.

You will need 1 egg and some milk.

You will need 1/2 tsp chilli powder, 1/2 tsp cumin powder and 1/2 tsp coriander powder and salt to your taste.

I added 1 teaspoon baking powder with one cup of plain flour.

cut each and every mushroom to four as shown in the picture.

Add all the ingredients in to a bowl with 500 ml  milk.

After dip the mushrooms in the batter.

Put a pan on the stove with some oil and leave it to be hot. When the oil is hot add the dipped mushrooms and deep fry until golden brown.

Serve the fried mushrooms with a sauce or a chutney.

Tiramisu…with a simple guide (No Eggs)

Tiramisu is a beautifully layered Italian dessert, normally made with raw eggs in and as a custard. I did this with out eggs. One reason is it to give an idea for those who don’t consume eggs.

If you do not like to use liquor please don’t use any at all. Even this tastes beautiful with out eggs and liquor. Instead you can add pure vanilla paste to get more flavour.

All you need to remember is not to soak the cookies longer time. If you dip them longer it can break easily and will not get a nice layers like in my picture. When you leave it over night the flavours go through all the cookies and liquids get absorbed and becomes like at hick slice. I have friends who change the recipe and dip the cookies in drinking chocolate than in coffee. That way it gives a beautiful chocolate flavour to the slice.
