Amrakhand

amrakhand It’s raining mangoes in India and how I miss being in India now. Only good thing about Indian Summer is Mangoes, agree? If you know me well you know that I love fruits, mango especially. I’m a sucker for anything mango- raw mango, ripe mango, mango lassi, mango milkshake, mango sambar, mango pickle, you name it. Amrakhand is an ubiquitous Maharastrian/Gujrathi sweet made of hung(thick) yogurt and mangoes. It’s basically Shrikhand plus mangoes hence amrakhand.

Cashew Macaroons

Cashew macaroons or ‘mukroons’ however u call it used to be my childhood favorite. Whenever my dad traveled to Mangalore, I’ll be waiting for him to return back with these yummy goodies.. These airy, nutty, sugary treats are really addictive, you cannot stop eating these. I had a beautiful dream about my dad, he was helping me with gardening only to wake up and realize that he is no more.. So I woke up Ā sobbing today morning and needed a pick me up and decided to bake something simple. This was in my to-do list since long and finally got to make it today.. And I’m glad that I did, it sure whipped up a lot of childhood memories.. CashewMacaroons These cashew macaroons are very easy to make with minimal ingredients. I love how I got it right at the first attempt and the taste was 99.99% similar to the authentic one. Oh btw, I have never tasted a macaroon from Thoothukudi, to be honest, I din’t even know these existed in Tamil Nadu too. But, my husband said it tasted ditto like the Thoothukudi ones except that the shape will be of cone.. Oh well!!Read More …
