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?

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?

Taste food from south Indian cuisine and you would know it yourself. The best thing is south Indians make the most yummiest of food in the simplest of way while not tempering much with the nutritional portion.
