Sharing a lovely sweet for Diwali. This is such a soul satisfying sweet. Although I am on a perpetual weight loss plan, I simply cannot resist have a bite of these when they are still in stock ;)
3 cups besan
2 cups fine rava (sooji/samolina)
3 cups sugar
2 cups ghee
1 tablespoon cardamom powder
½ cup raisins, dry fruits (optional)
Roast rava(sooji/semolina) on medium flame without ghee until it becomes very light and roasted aroma starts coming from the rava(sooji/semolina). Roast besan with ghee on slow flame until it becomes very light and slight change in colour (roast besan very patiently otherwise it will taste really bad). Add rava(sooji/semolina)in it and mix it nicely …roast it again on low flame for 5 minutes. Turn off the gas after the mixture has a nice reddish color. When the mix is of the temperature where it can be handled, add the sugar into the roasted rava-besan ghee mixture. Add cardamom powder & raisins in it. Allow it to cool or until it becomes little hard for making ladoo. Make small ladu of this mixture. Enjoy!!

Hi friends. .sharing a card in purple color.. This is specially for a cause..to stop domestic violence. There are so many people silently suffering domestic violence .hiding their pain..due to some or the other reason. My wish is that they gather courage and decide not to suffer any more. If they have a strong desire and will power. . They can definitely turn the things in their favor. . Coz God helps those who help themselves. With best hope and gratitude I thank God for giving a good life..sometimes in our day to day life we get so bogged down by problems. .we complain about anything and everything. .forgetting all the lovely things that god has already given..which is a dream for so many. Thank you God.

I came to know about muthia after marriage. Sharing this lovely recipe from MIL
1.5 cups of soaked tuvar daal
1/2 cup soaked split chickpeas (chane ki dal)
1/2 cup soaked moong daal
chipped ginger 1 tbsp or more
red chilly powder or green chillies chopped to taste
whole cumin seeds 2 tsp
whole pepper corns 2 tsp
turmeric powder 1 tsp
salt to taste
chopped fenugreek leaves/coriander leaves(optioanl)
Blend the daals together in a mixie jar or food processor without adding any water to it.
In a bowl add the chopped greens and the lentil paste , add the turmeric powder and salt to taste.Now mix together everything, using your fingers, making it a loose dough. You can add a little chick pea flour or any millet flours (like bajra or jowar or even corn meal)to make the dough to a workable consistency. I
Make small lemon sized balls with the mixture and keep them on a greased glass or ceramic plate.
Steam the balls in a steamer or keep them covered in a strainer on top of boiling water.Cut the balls and temper them.
oil 1 tsp
asafoetida 1/8 tsp
whole red chilly broken in two parts
small variety mustard seeds (rai) 1 tsp
sesame seeds 2 tsp
Heat oil in a pan and add the remaining ingredients in the order of the list one by one. As soon as the sesame is fried as it is added last, add the dumplings and toss them with the tempering mix. let the balls become crisp in oil.
The greens or other vegetables like grated carrots, cabbage and spring onion make a great combination for such dumplings.

Hi friends. .sharing a simple card that little miss and me made for her grandpa's birthday. We punched out some circles from a pattern paper. Folded them and adhered like a flower. The leaves and vase are handcut. Decorated the card with glitter. Easy to put together for kids!
