This is an easy and quick hot fudge sauce that you can make in a few minutes to pour over your cakes or ice creams. It's easy to make and works well in an emergency. If you've baked a cake and find it to be less sweet, you can pour this over your cake and it will be just perfect! I used this to pour over my chocolate poke cake and everybody loved it so much!

Coconut Milk Pulao

Coconut milk enhances the flavor of the pulao. I always add coconut milk to all my pulao recipes. I always prefer the taste of pulao with coconut milk than without it. This time I was making a small batch of pulao just for my kids and I decided to make a coconut milk pulao for them using only coconut milk. This made the pulao so rich and so tasty. You can use half water and half coconut milk too.

Lemon Rice

Lemon Rice is a flavorful, easy and simple rice that you can pack for kids lunch box. Since my kids are very little, they prefer these kind of variety rice in their lunch boxes instead of sambar/kuzhambu rice. I add some cashews and peanuts to make it more crunchy for them. This pairs very well potato roast


Lemon Rice

Lemon rice is also a great option to pack when we have to travel. I remember as a kid, my mom always used to pack lemon rice when we went in train. It was always lemon rice or tamarind rice or curd rice with potatoes whenever we went on vacations. It doesn't spoil and always tastes so flavorful.
You can also prepare this with leftover rice. If you have left over rice, then this is the quickest, tastiest dish you can make!

Wacky Chocolate Cake | Chocolate Crazy Cake

If you're looking for an easy, no work, egg free chocolate cake then look no further than this recipe! This is the simplest chocolate cake ever and it tastes so good too! This cake does not use eggs, butter or milk, all ingredients will be easily and readily available in your kitchen! Apparently this cake was created as a result of rationing during World War II when milk, eggs, butter were scarce. 


Wacky Chocolate Cake

The method of preparing this cake is also very easy and different. There is no need to line or grease the tin. You just have to add all the dry ingredients in the cake pan, make 3 wells in the dry ingredients and then add the 3 wet ingredients, mix well and bake!! It doesn't get easier than that!
But I was baking this cake for guests who were coming home and I did not feel the need to risk having the cake stuck to the pan!! So I lined my pan and prepared the batter in the conventional method. 

This cake is pretty similar to the other dairy free eggless chocolate cake in my blog. Just as that cake, this cake tastes great with any frosting. I used whipped cream, you can use buttercream or ganache too or any other frosting.

Coconut Carrot Juice

This is one of the healthiest drinks you can drink. The blend of carrots and coconut is a perfect way to start off your day. You can make this like how I have made or just make carrot juice and mix it with coconut milk. Either way it works. I added a bit of cane sugar for taste, you can skip it and make it a complete health drink.

I usually make a paneer baby corn kurma as a side for pulao which tastes really good so this time I wanted to make a masala as a side dish for roti. Once again this simple dish did not disappoint and tasted really yum! I was going to make the curry with only paneer and baby corn but then added the peas since I had some left over.
