First of all, it’s been a reaallly long time since I posted anything here. My new job has kept me from doing anything on the blog and the website. But a ‘new’ and ‘improved’ Indian food website is on the works and I’m super excited to show it all to ya
Alright, here is a video that I found on VideoJug.Com. The author of the video calls it Banoffee Pie though the recipe uses Bananas and chocolates. Nevertheless the final product looks extremely tempting to be devoured in one-go. And it doesn’t use any eggs.
Long time no see! I have been having problems with the blog with some spammer / hacker freezing things around. I finally seem to have sorted out that problem by upgrading to the latest version of wordpress.
Ok, that aside, I wanted to search for more recipes to add to the eggless cakes collection. Previously I had posted delicious eggless pineapple cake video from Manjula aunty. This time, the lady-duo from Show me the Curry have created a cake delicacy with dates and walnuts. This can make for a good tea time snack or maybe a weekend try.

Mohanthal is a Gujarati sweet specialty that I recently added to the Gujarati recipes section on Indian Food Kitchen. Then I went on to see if there were any videos to help prepare them.
Luckily I found one by Manjula aunty (from ManjulasKitchen.com), whose other cooking videos can be seen on this blog. If you are preparing for Christmas, add this to your menu along with the cakes. Like she describes in the video, it can be eaten as a dessert or as a snack along with tea.

I found the following video on Youtube.com which shows the recipe for making Modak or the Modagam (called in Tamil Nadu). Modak is a variation of the South Indian Kozhakattai or the Karnataka Kadubu by its shape. Modaks are usually round while Kozhakattais are lengthier.
Modaks are usually made in Maharashtra and other North Indian states (I don’t know which other). You could use the same method shown in the video to make Kozhukkattais as well by just changing the shape of the dough.
In the video, the Modaks are made using a Microwave. However, you can also use a pressure cooker by referring to the recipes from the previous post.
Note: This video is not produced by anyone from this blog. I have added this video from another website (with permission) to help you in your cooking. Original recipe by Sudha Kulkarni from Aais Kitchen
I just love Puran Polis. They also go by the names Holige (in Kannada), Bobbatlu(in Telugu), Poli and Obbattu(in Tamil). Usually, during Ganesha Chathurthi, my whole day consists of eating only these sweet delicacies.
For festivals like Ganesha Chaturthi and Ugadi, these ‘Bobbatlus’ (in Telugu) are very much part of the menu. In Karnataka, Holige, as they are called, is a main item in a list of special dishes perpared during the festival.
This video is by Sudha shows you how to make Puran Poli (with Dhal). So enjoy and also include this as part of your other festival and special occassions. If you live in Bangalore, don’t forget to call me when you make them
My mom always stays away from either making or eating cakes just because of the sole reason that they contain eggs. When I found that there are ways and recipes to make cakes without eggs, I finally found a way to convince my mother to make these delicious desserts.
I had earlier posted a video for Christmas, by Hetal and Anuja, entriprising chefs from ShowmetheCurry.com where they showed you how to make an eggless chocolate cake.
Here is another of thier recipes where they show you how to make Biscuit Cakes with Chocolate and Cocoa. This is a no-bake cake, meaning you do not have to bake. This gives me enough reason and hopefully to you too, to try and make this delicious cake.

Mysore Pak is such a unique name. When I was a kid, I thought that this South Indian sweet came from Mysore and it was a type of Pak (betel nut in Tamil).
Later I realized that it nowhere close to the Tamil ‘Pak’. Well forget the history. If you’ve eaten one of these sweet cubes more than once you’d have see that there are more than one version of it. Either it is hard or it is too soft (like the popular Krishna Sweets version).
I decided to post this video from Youtube after more than a year of posting a recipe for Mysore Pak in this blog. A gentleman called Srivatsa had commented of an easier way of making it and therefore, here it is. He shows you the best possible way of making wonderful Mysore Paks.

Rasgulla, Rosogolla or Roshgolla – whatever you call it, it certainly is among the top sweets in Indian cuisine. Originally thought to be from Bengal, Wikipedia tells me that it is Orissa actually.
I’m no expert in Indian food history, but I can sure eat a boxful of Rosogollas in one sitting! In Kolkata and other parts of Bengal, Haldiram’s, KC Das and other Sweet makers serve these sweets in a cay cup with lots of sugar juice.
In the following video, Manjula shows you the step by step guide to making Rosogollas at home. Enjoy this holiday weekend and welcome the New Year with this delicious dessert.
Note: The video is about 9 minutes long. It is recommended that you watch this video with a broadband internet connection.
The Holiday mood that started with Dasara and Diwali continues into the year end with Christmas and New Year. Christmas is celebrated with the same gusto as other festivals in India.
And Christmas also means lots of cakes, chocolates and other sweet varieties. Many, including my mom, do not eat cake because they have eggs in them. In the video that follows, Anuja and Hetal make a delicious Chocolate Cake minus the eggs. So enjoy this Christmas with this delicious cake and spread cheer all around!
Diwali is always time for Indian sweets, and lots of them! This year Diwali (or Deepavali) falls on a weekend and this helps people who work and study, take some time off and enjoy this festival with friends and family.
If you don’t know what a Jamoon is, here’s what Wikipedia says:
Gulab jamun (gul-aab jaa-mun) is a popular Indian and Pakistani sweet dish….It is made of a khoya, dough, often including double cream and a little flour in a sugar syrup flavored with cardamom, rosewater or saffron.
Jamun has been my one of favorite ever since I started to talk . So let Manjula guide you through in this video to make delicious Gulab Jamoons easily.
