Butterscotch Mousse Recipe | Easy Eggless Desserts | Eggless butterscotch mousse written by Kavitha Ramaswamy from Foodomania.com Sometimes, you need to go the extra mile to tell the people you love how much they mean to you. **And with such a cheesy sentence, I make my debut as the romantic-at-heart lady** But seriously, I’m one of those who would starve to feed the people I love. Okay, okay, not starve. But I would happily sacrifice my share of a scrumptious cupcake for others… especially if I am the one who has made it!

Butterscotch is my mom’s favorite flavor. She doesn’t do over-the-top chocolate (I know, crazy right?!). But she’ll happily nibble on any form of butterscotch. This Butterscotch Mousse has been under development for quite sometime now just for her. Once I nailed the basic chocolate mousse recipe, I only had to find out how to make the butterscotch flavor stand out in the recipe. I needn’t have looked far, considering I’ve already made a smashing butterscotch pudding before!

Making butterscotch is very similar to making caramel… actually I think it is the same as making caramel. If you’ve taken care of a few basic points, then the rest of the recipe is simply a breeze to make!   { Click to read the RECIPE }

Roasted Vegetable Soup Recipe | Healthy Vegetarian Soups written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com 1) Use up all the vegetables in your fridge

2) Dump them onto a baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes.

3) Grind to a soup and flavor with salt and pepper.

Lo & Behold! You have a healthy and hearty soup ready! I’m an ardent soup drinker. And tomato veggie soup is used to be my favorite…. until I found out this gem. Roasting the veggies in the oven (or the grill) to let it caramelize and develop a smoky flavor just amplifies the flavor of this soup by a 100 notches! So intense is the flavor that you don’t really need much to season it. Just some salt and pepper would give you an aromatic bowl of roasted vegetable soup that you’re guaranteed to love! And serve it with some crusty wholewheat bread to have a wholesome meal in itself!   { Click to read the RECIPE }

Microwave Vegetable Pulao

Follow the recipe for microwave vegetable pulao to make a quick & aromatic one pot meal!

Microwave Vegetable Pulao Recipe | Quick Vegetarian Pilaf | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of www.Foodomania.com Today’s microwave vegetable pulao recipe is sponsored by Best Foods Inc. – makers of premium quality Basmati Rice.

I am a rice-a-holic. I eat some kind of a rice dish for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Be it some soft rice idlis to kick of the day or a simple curd rice to end the day, rice is a major component of my diet. I do have a post on how I cook my rice in the pressure cooker. More often than not, it is the tool we use to cook everything from rice, potatoes and even beans!

However, once in a while, I like to put my Microwave to good use. And whenever I do, I like to cook Pulao in it! Only because I can! ;) And because the texture of the rice is fluffy and wonderful when cooked in the microwave!

It is not much different than making it in a pressure cooker or a pan. If you own nothing but a microwave, then you would love this recipe since you’re essentially making everything in one microwave pan.   { Click to read the RECIPE }
