Welcome

Hello friends
Welcome to ''my cuisine''. According to me cuisine or the culinary art is just that an art. The art of creating delicious foods with a conscience to health has various dimensions with which we can experiment and I have just started to experiment in my kitchen. There is nothing more heartwarming than a hot aroma filled food on a cold rainy day to cheer us up or nothing more satisfactory than satisfying the taste buds of our loved and dear ones.This was the reason i found my new love for cooking. Hope you would enjoy my various recipes......

This is a sweet dish which is mainly found in South India. They are often made at homes during Diwali and other functions. Its a very simple dish but it follows a fast cooking method.

Ingredients:
  • Gram flour - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 2 cups
  • Clarified butter(ghee) - 2 cups 
Method:
  • In a heavy bottomed pan add the sugar with 1/2 a cup of water or until sugar is just covered and bring it to boil. 
  • Sieve the gram flour so that there are no lumps. Warm the ghee separately. Apply ghee to the sides of a rectangular tray and keep aside.
  • When the sugar syrup reaches half string consistency sprinkle the gram flour in the syrup while mixing consistently. Pour the ghee little by little while still consistently mixing. You will be able to see the mixture frothing up nicely. 
  • Just when you see that the mixture starts to leave from the sides and the ghee separates Pour the mixture onto the tray. 
  • Before it cools put rectangular cuts and leave it cool.
Enjoy the delicious sweet.
