I’m here with another post for my Baking 101 series! In my last post, I talked about how to properly grease and line a baking tin. Greasing & Lining basically prevents your baked goodie from sticking to the sides of your baking tray. Now, an equally important task is to un-mould your cake or brownie. (The others like cookies, muffins, breads etc. are fairly easy) You may have followed the recipe to the ‘T’, mixed properly, set the temperature right; but unless you master the art of removing the cake from a cake tin, you won’t get to look at the beauty! 😀 (more…)
I’m not a professional cake decorator. I love shortcuts to decorating a beautiful cake- like ready made frosting, decorative edibles et al. But the food blogger in me doesn’t permit paying 100 bucks for a bucket of frosting when I could make the same for 50. 😀 Anyway, this post is not about cost saving or frugal cooking. Its about making one of the easiest chocolate decorations ever!
I am one of those stubbornly self sufficient people when it comes to cooking. I love making everything from scratch. So, when I needed mawa to make Mawa Cake, instead of saving 2 hours of my life and buying it from the shop, I decided to make it on my own. Making it is so damn easy and involves almost zero labor!
You cannot talk about Indian Cuisine without touching Paneer. (read Puh-neer) It is one of the most versatile ingredients ever. Besides using it in savories galore, paneer plays a significant role in many sweet dishes too! It is a cheese made by curdling the milk. Paneer is similar to unsalted cottage cheese. And it is one of the easiest cheeses you could ever make at home! 🙂 Try it out. It might be cheaper than buying. (more…)
