Add the cornflour mixture and cardamom powder, mix well and cook on a slow flame, while stirring occasionally for 12 minutes or till it becomes thick. Switch off the flame and let it cool completely. Pour the mixture into 6 aluminium kulfi moulds. Freeze overnight or till set.

Of the many varieties of kulfi, this traditional eggless Indian malai kulfi stands out with an extra rich and intense flavour.

nylon khamman dhokla | Gujarati nylon khamman dhokla | instant nylon khamman dhokla | with 18 amazing images nylon khamman dhoklastarter , as a tea-time snack, or even for breakfast. Basically, something you can have any time you are hungry! These Gujarati nylon khamman dhokla are so soft and spongy that the reference to nylon is really apt! What is more, this recipe is also very easy to implement if you follow these simple instructions properly and practice it a bit. The addition of fruit salt to the batter, and water to the tempering, are the two main factors responsible for the super-soft and spongy nature of this dhokla. Temper just before serving, for the perfect “100/100”! I would like to give you some tips/suggestions to make a perfect nylon khamman dhokla. 1. Add the lemon juice and salt to the dough. As this is a sweet and slightly sour dhokla, we add lemon juice. Alternately you can add citric acid (nimbu ka phool). The lemon juice (or citric acid) and fruit salt create a fizzy reaction which results in soft, spongy khaman. 2. Mix well using a whisk to get a smooth Nylon Khamman Dhokla batter. The batter will have to mixed very well as the sugar needs to dissolve properly. If you want you can keep the batter aside for 10-15 minutes till the sugar has properly dissolved. 3. Grease 175 mm. (7") diameter thali with a little oil. This is an important step because greasing helps the nylon khamman dhokla come out of the plate without breaking or sticking. 4. Just before steaming, add the fruit salt. This will react with the lemon juice to give a fluffy batter. 5. Gently mix the fruit salt in the batter till just mixed. Do not over mix the batter, it should be airy and fluffy like this! 6. Pour the tempering over the prepared dhoklas and spread it evenly. Make sure the dhoklas are warm when you pour the tempering or else they will not soak the water in. Serve nylon khamman dhokla with green chutney.

A very interesting Pav Sandwich, which is somewhere mid-way between a regular sandwich and vada pav, but as exciting as both together! Basically, it involves less work than vada pav because you do not need a vada but it is almost as tasty because it uses garlic chutney and assorted masalas including pav bhaji and garam masalas. The choice of vegetables layered between the pav is also such that you get a balanced texture, with a bit of crunchiness and a bit of juiciness too. Coriander, as always, peps up the whole arrangement, creating a fresh burst of flavours on your palate! Serve the Pav Sandwich immediately on preparation.

Truly royal! unlike the traditional method of adding loads of cream, ghee etc. To make this shahi recipe, here we use low fat milk and zero-oil. You won’t know the difference… it tastes just as good! i have replaced cream with poppy seeds and cashewnut paste to impart the required richness and flavour. Poppy seeds also add calcium, iron, zinc and fibre. Shahi Korma Biryani Recipe with step by step photos.
