Eggs are one of my favorites, simply because it's so easy to prepare and whenever there's nothing in the fridge, these simple eggs make a delicious side dish! This is one of the simplest and easiest egg recipes that I make but I should say, this is easily one of the favorites. It tastes absolutely yum!

Dinner Rolls | Bread Rolls | Plain Buns

Have you ever wanted to bake breads at home but the yeast intimidated you? Well, I was like that too! I had to do a lot of 'talking to myself' to bring myself to bake breads. And besides, we are not a bread eating family so I never felt compelled to bake breads.
But then, when I did start baking with yeast, I was gripped with it! Obsessed may be the right word too! And it's not all that hard. You just need a good brand of yeast and then your good to go!

Banana Chocolate Chips Muffins

This is one of my most favorite and special muffin recipe since this is the first muffin that I tried after I started baking. I remember, at that time, hoping secretly that no one would want these muffins so that I can have them all for myself!! It was that tasty! So soft and moist and yum! And this time when I made it again, I was left secretly hoping for the same thing!!
The flavor of banana with chocolate and cinnamon is absolutely divine. Do try it out if you have over ripe bananas at home.

Dates Milkshake

This is a delicious milkshake and works like magic for breakfast! Healthy and filling. This is also a great way to include dates in your child's diet, if they are not fond of eating them. 
I had a packet of dates lying around for sometime and was thinking of how to use it up and I ended up baking a date walnut cake and then with the remaining, made this fantastic milkshake.

Eggless Pomegranate Mousse | Easy No Bake Recipes

I love mousse! Well, who doesn't! I love the silky soft texture of a mousse. I normally don't make mousse with eggs since most mousse recipes add raw eggs and I am not comfortable eating un cooked eggs. 
This recipe has no eggs and still tastes fabulous! We had lots of pomegranates at home and no one was interested in eating them so I went about making some pomegranate juice, pomegranate milkshake and then this mousse. All were awesome!

Preparation time - 15 mins | Cooking time 8 hours | Serving - 4 dessert bowls
Recipe Category - Dessert | Recipe Cuisine - World

  • Pomegranate juice - 1 cup
  • Whipping cream - 1/ 2 cup
  • Sugar - 2 tbsp (add more if needed)
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Gelatin -  2 tsp [or] Agar agar powder 2 tsp 
  • Water - 5 tbsp

Here are some other mousse recipes

1. Add the gelatin to 5 tbsp of water and let it bloom for 5 minutes. Then microwave for 30 seconds and let it sit till it cools down. It will become a clear solution.

2. Blend about 2 cups of pomegranate arils (seeds) with sugar and strain to get 1 cup of juice.
3. Add the vanilla extract and whip the 1/2 cup of cream to stiff peaks. The cream will double in volume and give you 1 cup of cream.

4. Now pour the pomegranate juice in the whipped cream and whip again until it blends together.
5. Add the cooled gelatin mixture and mix again.

6. Pour into moulds and let it set for 4-6 hours.

1. If you want to use this as a filling for cakes, cook the pomegranate juice with sugar until the sugar dissolves and then add the bloomed gelatin to this and proceed with the rest of the steps. This will make the mousse more firm and sets well.

Until next time,
