Rava Ladoo



HAPPY DIWALI 
Rava Ladoo is an easy Ladoo prepared during - Diwali Festival Of Lights and many other festivals as well. I wanted to prepare this ladoo from a long time and finally prepared for this Diwali. For more  Diwali Recipes - Click Here.

Ingredients:
Rava 1 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup 
Ghee 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
Raisins few
Cashew Nuts broken into small pieces few

Method:
In a kadai, roast rava until nice aroma is released. Don't overdo as it will become brown. Switch off flame. Allow rava to get cooled.

In a small pan , add 1 tsp ghee and fry the broken cashew nuts until golden brown. Switch off flame and keep ready aside.

In a mixer jar, powder the sugar to a fine powder.

In the same mixer jar, add the cooled rava and grind it to a coarse powder. 

Transfer the powdered sugar, powdered rava, fried cashew nuts into a mixing bowl.

Also add raisins and cardamom powder and mix well.

Now add ghee and mix it properly and start to forming ladoo by greasing some ghee on hands as well. Here at this point forming Ladoo might be little difficult. But try to press it hard and firm, and Ladoos are formed. 
{Tip: If Ladoos are not forming properly, use little milk to form, but if milk is added then the Ladoos will not stay good for a longer time, will have to consume within a day or so}. 


Transfer to a air tight container.

Cheesy Monaco Chaat

Cheesy Monaco Chaat dedicated specifically for kids and their sweet parties, for the occasion of my 150th post. I usually choose to prepare a special dish for any occasion of my blog, so this time thought why not dedicate to kids. It's an simple, easy, yet delicious recipe with basic ingredients yet such a one that can fit into the menu of parties celebrated for kids. I have given the touch of chaat topping for the simple Monaco biscuit.

Ingredients:
Monaco Biscuit 6 or as per needed
Cheese Slice 3 or as per needed
Onion 1 small Finely Chopped
Tomato 1 small Finely Chopped
Freshly Chopped Coriander Leaves little
Red Chili Powder a pinch
Chaat Masala Powder a pinch
Sev {zero size} little

Method:
Cut cheese slice into round shape as that of the biscut with the help of a round cutter.

In a bowl, add onion, tomato and coriander leaves. Also sprinkle little chaat masala and red chili powder and mix everything well.


In a plate, place 6 monaco biscuit in a plate. 

Now place the cheese slice on each monaco biscuit.

Top it up with onion tomato mix.

Garnish with little sev.

Enjoy this kiddy dish with kids.

Bhindi Fry / Okra Fry

Bhindi Fry is one of the simplest, easy yet extremely Delicious sabji. It is best served with roti. But I love it mixed with daad bhaat / daal chawal and also it goes extremely superb with raita or just curd.

Ingredients:
Bhindi / Okra 250 gms
Oil 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Turmeric powder 1 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tbsp
Red chili powder 1 tbsp
Kokum 1 or 2 petal
Salt as per taste

Method:

Wash bhindi / okra and wipe it out dry with a cloth. 
 
Now cut into small pieces discarding little top and bottom of the bhindi/ okra.

In a pan heat oil. Once heated, add mustard seeds and allow it to crackle. Once they crackle, add asafoetida and bhindi / okra. 

Now add turmeric powder and salt and immediately cover it without even stirring it. After a minute, open the lid and mix once. 

Add kokum and coriander powder and just mix once and cover and cook until the bhindi okra is almost done {say maybe around 3 minutes} .

Open and add red chili powder, mix once and cover and cook for another 2 minutes.

Switch off the flame.

Transfer to a serving bowl. 


Accompany with roti.
