Fudge With Leftover Rice (No Fancy Ingredients)


fudge
Burfi is a tasty sweet relished across the country.

What about a burfi/fudge with leftover rice?

Seriously, I am not kidding.

Leftover rice is usually a big headache in many homes, especially in India, where we do not want to throw away anything.

So what about making a fudge with leftover rice?

Since I have imposed a complete ban on outside food in my house (sweets, snacks included), I certainly have to work little harder to do the needful myself, especially if we experience cravings for sweets or snacks (which is of course rare).
Today, I was churning out paneer (cottage cheese) and suddenly decided to experiment with a sweet.

Once milk curdled to form paneer, leaving a good amount of whey, I decided to use just 2 tbsp of paneer for my experiment along with half of the whey, removing the rest in a different utensil.








I frequently stirred whey and paneer and then decided to
add some leftover rice (2 tbsp).
Then I added 1 tbsp of milk powder to it, 1 tsp of cream (malai), and 2 tbsp of ground fresh coconut. I added 1 tsp of sugar. At this stage, you may want to add little milk. I added 1 tsbp of it..

I kept stirring until the whey or water evaporated and the entire mixture came together. I tried to mash rice in between since I did not want hubby to know that I have used leftover rice as well. I think it will be a good idea to grind the entire mixture so that the rice is not visible if you aren't able to mash it well. (In my case, though I wasn't able grind rice well, hubby still didn't realize the sweet included rice as an ingredient :)

Then took out the mixture on a greased aluminum foil. Grated a few almonds using a grater over the mixture and pressed it with a heavy utensil for 30 minutes.
After half an hour, the mixture was set and I could cut it into pieces.

When it was time to give it to hubby, I was wondering how he would react to the new experiment. But I am glad he was super thrilled and very happy with the result. The best part he didn't even realize I had added leftover rice to the recipe. Happy me.

Burfi Ingredients:
2 tbsp paneer (cottage cheese)
2 tbsp grated coconut
2 tbsp leftover parboiled rice
1 tbsp milk powder (you may add more to enhance the taste)
1 tsp cream or malai
1 tbsp milk
3 tbsp - whey (well it is just an idea, since I don't know the accurate measurement)
Green cardamom
1/2 tsp sugar (as per taste)


I am sure you will love this recipe - gives a taste of khoya, coconut. The most important part it is light & sweet with the right amount of leftovers. Is there a better way to use leftovers?

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
