Vermicelli kheer or as we call it Sevaiyya or Sheerkhurma is a very simple and fast to make dessert.
I use the thin and already roasted vermicelli but the thick and non-roasted one will also work. I prefer the thin one.
No pudding recipe can be easier or simple to make than this beautiful recipe of Vermicelli.
SheerKhurma means Sheer ie Milk and Khurma means dates so a pudding made of Milk and dates is actually technically SheerKhurma, we add vermicelli and dryfruits to make it richer. The more we cook the milk with the vermicelli, the thicker the pudding will be as vermicelli will release starch. A very basic recipe will have just 4 ingredients ie Milk, Vermicelli, Sugar and dryfruits, So even if you have just these 4 ingredients, try making this dessert and you will love it. There can be many add ons, watch for the extras/optional items in the ingredient list.
Paneer or Cottage cheese is a good source of proteins, calcium, vitamin A and Vitamin B. It is super healthy and nutritious.
Best part is Paneer can be made at home from scratch –
The process starts with curdling milk. This is done by adding an acidic substance like lime juice or vinegar to warm milk.
When the acidity of the milk increases, curds of casein protein separate from the whey, the liquid part of the milk. Add more water to lessen the vinegary taste.
Now, filter this curdled milk with a muslin cloth/cheese cloth and try to remove all the water/moisture. Take the cloth with the cheese inside and press it with both hands, some more water will be released. Keep the tied cheese below a heavy pan or a heavy kitchen object and leave for some time. After sometime the cheese can be cut into pieces and used.
Dinner parties are incomplete without a sumptuous Paneer Dish and here is my favorite. Easy but simply Delicious.
Melt-in mouth grilled Paneer cubes in a rich onion-tomato-cashew gravy.
Tofu can also be substituted in place of Paneer/Cottage Cheese
Garlic breadsticks is an all time favorite at our place and here’s how anyone can make it at home with ease and that too from scratch.
This recipe yields 2 portions.
Attention: Calorie conscious people, make it at your own risk 😉
The more butter you add in the end while serving, the more delicious it’s going to be.
Control the amount of yeast though because sometimes it smells a lot yeasty and that’s not what we want. These Garlic breadsticks go beautifully with soups as well, or pair it with a super creamy pink pasta, else have it on it’s own and you will love life…mmm…i love it to the core.
I was in a mood for a dessert that can be devoured after a meal and i had some cottage cheese in my fridge. So what did i make?? A very melt-in-mouth delicious Cottage cheese laddoo dessert. Just the right sweetness with hints of cardamom and rose flavors that i simply love. Make ahead for parties, dinners or lunches.
A very simple dessert made out of Paneer and rolled in some desiccated coconut.
Keep these laddoos in refrigerator and relish them within 3-4 days.
Saffron in milk can be added for a rich and beautiful orange colored kesari laddoos.
Cardamom and Rose essence gives it a refreshing taste and it is an awesome dessert to have after a meal. No need of a mouth-freshener then 😀
